In the area. Was looking for something quick to eat. Basically every was fried and greasy bar food. Nothing special. Pretty basic menu. Not worth making a special trip for.

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!
