Old fashion good food

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

We happened upon Mason's a few years ago while visiting Washington, IN. The nostalgic look of the old-time drive-in made us pull in, and the amazing food has kept us coming back! Well worth the 45 minute drive from our house! The frosty mug of root beer - delicious! The foot long coneys - to die for! The onion rings... More

Mason's is just like those drive ins you see in all of the old tv shows. The girls come out to your car and take your order (they're not on roller skates though) We always stop when were in town to get root beer floats. You can even get them in a frosty mug!
