I have been coming to Mug 'n Bun for years, since I was a little girl in fact. Generally I try to eat pretty healthy, but every once and a while I splurge and come here. The food is delicious, the servers are friendly, and eating in your car is a fun change. Anyone complaining about the size of the... More

Greasy food, fast service and awesome homemade root beer. Everything is greasy, be forewarned (no diet food here). That being said, it's an "old time" American feel of a drive-in. Aged building structures, bright colors and food to your car (if you want). The only thing that is lacking are poodle skirts. When I worked on the west side, my... More

Mug-n-Bun is always bustling. Although it is drive in food, it is really good. The menu is huge. Many people come just for the homemade rootbeer. The prices are really reasonable. There is a huge patio if you cannot find a parking place. It features heaters for the colder months. Service is very efficient.

I was eager to make my first outdoor visit of the season today and was very disappointed to find that the owner had substituted all the Coke products for Pepsi. I am sure no one from years of visiting this successful business ever complained about Coke but apparently a little more profit for the owner is more important that any... More

Life long patron, back in town for a visit and I decided to stop in for a root beer, tenderloin sandwich and onion rings. The root beer was flavorful and awesome as ever. But, the food has dropped down the scale considerably. The tenderloin was SO small and thin and had very little. taste. The onion rings were greasy and... More

We had a great lunch here. The root beer was great. The food was delicious. We got a chicken tender meal. It came with a lot of fries and chicken. The fried cauliflower was great. We ate inside, the waitress was very friendly and helpful. It was our first time and she was great answering questions for us.

I just had their cheesecake milkshake and its oh so good and because of that I'm giving them a higher rate. Tips: don't order the family size sides, a personal one is good for 2 people! They accept credit cards now but no tip line for the server so bring a little cash for that.

It was gas station food! Burgers were thin. My son ordered a pizza and they brought a pizza puff. I wouldn't recommend this place.

When I have searched for the best pork tenderloin online, this place always came up. I got to try it and it was worth the visit. We dined in (verses using the car hop). The "dining room" provided a bast from the past! The tenderloin was an A- mainly because it looked too institutionalized (in size and shape - i.e.... More
