Food is good, floats are awesome. Quick and inexpensive lunch. Location is a little sketchy, and there are no bathrooms or place to get out and stretch you legs if you traveling.

Mugs up is one of the best burger places in Columbia. I have never had anything bad from there is the 30+ years I have been eating there. The bad part is what to order since it's all good. I can never make up my mind between the Zips, Chili Dogs and the Chili Cheese Fries. I wish they were... More

Incredibly delicious burgers and fries, and fantastic handmade floats! For many locals (myself included) the beginning of spring is a reminder that Mugs Up will soon open.

Grew up going to the one in Overland Park, KS. Would always get the gallon of rootbeer to take home. Visited one afternoon last week and ordered a float to go. Guess I should have said to stay and maybe I would have got it served in a frosty mug like I remember! Great float though.

My husband grew up loving this drive-in so we have to eat there at least a couple of times each time we visit his family. They serve a loose-beef sandwich, like a sauceless sloppy joe. I prefer the chili cheese buns. It's always packed out w/people.

When visiting Columbia, we always stop in at Mugs Up for the BEST Rootbeer! This place is straight out of an Americana museum… an old-fashioned drive-in with home-cooked food.

Great food! Love the Zipburgers, chili cheese dogs, chili cheese fries, & root beer floats. Plus the fun of a drive-in.

I have lived in Columbia my entire life and had never been to Mugs Up. I finally tried it out and ordered a chili cheese dog. It was amazing! I'm picky about chili cheese dogs, but this was one of the best I have ever had! Everyone has always told me how amazing this place is, and now that I... More

Mugs Up is my favorite real drive in! I've only ever had the cheese zip w/everything. They are so good I don't want to try anything else! Sometimes I'm so hungry I think I can eat 2 but then the first one fills me up. Always good reheated in the microwave tho! The price is great too. Root Beer Floats... More
