We absolutely love the arrival of summer around here, because Mason's is open! They have the best coneys and the rootbeer is delicious!

Very few old school drive-ins still exist... and this is one of them. They been car hopping rootbeer, foot long coney's & Tots since 1991. Dont forget to ask for your Rootbeer in a frosted mug. Oh yea and they're rootbeer floats are killer!

A traditional drive in restaurant with really good coneys. You don't see this type of restaurant anymore. If you want fancy or diet food, don't come here. If you want great root beer and traditional drive in food, this is the place for you. If you don't want to sit in your car, they do have picnic tables.

The Root Beer is good, the mugs are cold. You can skip the rest of the food, sandwiches are mediocer, fries are ugh, onion rings so-so.

I used to eat here as a teenager all the time. Was pleasantly surprised that the food is good and the service is still fast. Awesome root beer and ice cream too!

The chili dogs taste just like they did 30 years ago. Wonderful. The car hop was kind and helpful. And we didn't have to wait very long at all.

Mason's root beer is a must stop when passing through or even close to Washington Indiana. Great coneys, tenderloins, hamburgers and actually any sandwich that they make. Oh, and also try the cheese fries!

It seems every time I have gone there in the last couple of years I end up with an upset stomach. The deep fried stuff is extra greasy. I think their fryer may not be hot enough.

It's a fun place, since there aren't many drive-in restaurants anymore. The food is good. The service is good. Prices comparable with other restaurants.

What an awesome lunch we had today! This place must be a town favorite! We all loved it. We were in town for business and a local recommended it! We had hamburgers, coneys, fries, onion rings, and mushroom! All good! I would definitely love to come back and bring my family to experience the outdoor fast food dining! If you... More
