stop by this place for a trip back 50 years! and make sure to get the root beer. I haven't been in awhile but when I think of Speedway I think of this place and a little place on main street called charlie browns. Those two place are must stops, even after all the other excellent places that have popped... More

Used to have really good food, now not really. Needs to go back to real good and not junk substitute.

Want a tasty tenderloin or good hamburger? This is the place. I really enjoyed my tenderloin and the onion rings were almost as good as the ones I prepare which is saying a LOT. We will be back.

Wanted a good burger and something close to the house. So I got a double pizza burger which is a great place to get a burger. I have not found a place that has a burger like this.

Every once in a while you want the drive in experience. This place hasn't changed in the 20 years since I've been here. A big tenderloin is exactly what I wanted

Favorite local Drive-in. Flash your lights and they come to your car, sit outside at picnic tables or eat inside when it's cold out. Great tenderloins, homemade rootbeer, best BLTS around. Onion rings and mushrooms are awesome.

There are not many drive-ins like Mug-n-Bun and this place is a throw back in time. The quality of the food is average but it is the experience as a whole that made it cool. Guests are allowed to smoke in their cars so if you don't mind second hand smoke, Mug-n-Bun is worth a visit. Service was great too.

When I moved to Indy everyone kept raving about this. Being that it has been open forever and one of the few drive-ins left in operation curiosity got the best of me. They did have a wide selection on their menu but almost everything on the menu was fried. The food was adequate but nothing unique. When we went inside... More

Just stopped by on a whim. Great curbside service and fast too. Tenderloins and homemade root beer are awesome. Many things to choose from. They are open year round.

We chose to sit outside and that was our mistake. The tables are old and not in good shape. Seems like they could improve the outside dining. Regardless the food is good comfort/ drive-in food. We had hot dogs, chili dogs and onion rings.
