I was told they had great tenderloins, but was very disappointed. They have great root beer, and their coney's are pretty good. You get a ton of onion rings with an order, and they are good but a bit greasy. The best thing about this...More

It is so nostalgic sitting in your car thinking about all how this place is older than my kids grandparents. The food options are amazing. I recommend the pizza burger and root beer.

Mug - n - Bun is one of the few remaining true drive in restaurants. This historic establishment has maintained it's appeal and the food is fantastic. In addition to the tenderloin, you must have the fried mushrooms and a rootbeer!

Indianapolis Mug 'n bun is very popular in city guides so I decided to test it. Actually it still has the old charming of a drive in: lights on to be served in your car, waitress ready to take orders and bring you food, and...More

Superb retro experience, but don't expect fancy. Wonderful drive-in food at very reasonable prices. Don't miss the tenderloin, onion rings, and root beer. Make sure to bring cash because that's the only way to be able to tip the wait staff. Go!

Great root beer. Fries are good. Onion rings were outstanding. Hot dogs with sauce were good. Just cool to eat in your car with drive in. Tips are cash only.
