“Old Time Drive Up”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2013

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

You don't find these anymore, you have to stop if for nothing else than to see a real car hop. A dog and a root Beer and you are good to go.

“A Taste of the Past”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2013

Want to step back in time? This outdoor drive in has great food--coneys are the best and frosted mug root beer is delicious.

“Like stepping back in time.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2012

Mason's Root Beer Drive-In is a surviving relic of the past. Their coney dogs (regular or foot long) are to die for. You can still get root beer in frosted mugs and the car hops are quick and friendly. They have regular hamburger stand items as well as their own specialty sandwiches. The food here is always fresh and made to order. It is a seasonal restaurant opening in the spring and closing sometime in late fall. Perhaps this is part of their success. Knowing that they are not always available makes it all the more important to catch them during their open season. Regardless, they are a destination and an experience that is hard to find any more. I hope they are there for many years to come.
