Good food & service....very casual....eat in car or at outside tables...some seating inside. Be sure to get a free bumper sticker & buy a Mug-n-Bun mug for your very own!

I like to support independent restaurants any time I am able. As other reviews state, the place is pretty neat and love the history. The service girls are pretty friendly. Kinda stinks they have to walk across the lot back and forth for the food, but it is what it is. The first time I went there, I got the... More

I'm sure there were days in the past Mug-n-Bun did not exist, but I am glad I wasn't alive to see those dark days. This is a classic drive-in with classic drive-in food. Sure they've added a room across the parking lot, but why would you want to eat in there versus in your car or the small outdoor patio?... More

Went to the Mug and Bun a couple of weeks ago for lunch. Great old time drive with some very good greasy spoon type of food. Our fries were piping hot! The Root Beer is very good, I had to get a Jumbo size! The Double Cheeseburger was very good also. The only drawback was my girlfriend saying the Tenderloin... More

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
