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!

Return to the 50's!! This drive-in restaurant is reminder of those crazy youthful happy days. Carhops take your order, bring it to your car & hook the platter to your window. (But no roller skates anymore!). Food is good, too, & prices reasonable. Or you can eat at picnic tables & watch the traffic go by. No inside dining. A... More

I was looking for a hot dog fix and this place did a good job. I liked the sauce and got a big dog that was more than I wanted to eat but was so good that I finished it with no problems. I loved the BBQ here also along with good root beer.

Mason's has been around forever. We take a drive to visit it every summer. They are only open part of the year. The frosted root beer mugs are awesome. YOu pull up a server comes out to your car gets your order & thats where you eat the car. The cheese fries, coneys even the burgers are all great.

Car hops and foot long coneys, this is the place to be. They don't make em like this anymore and the food is great. Made to order, not before you order. Try the Town Topper or a Sky Scraper and you'll forget what a quarter pounder is. And you haven't had Mason's in a Frosted Mug you haven't had root... More

This place has been around for as long as I can remember and has some of the best root beer in the area. The food is good, the service is great (if you like to eat in your car) and the prices are reasonable
