Overpriced, dry, burgers, don't use real icecream in the floats. Overall disappointed. Am used to the real thing (California drive-ins, like Mel's in ""American Grafitti"".) ...

Worst Service Ever 5/7/2011

We got to Mug'n Bun and it was rather busy so we thought it must be good. Were we wrong as this place had the worst service I have ever had in the 30 years I lived here. We pulled up between 2 cars by the seating area and waited for 15 minutes, my wife went up to the window to order and they said someone would be right over. After another 15 minutes someone finally showed up to take our order and the person next to us. We waited for 20 minutes and a waitress took drinks to the car next to us and went back up never to return. We waited for almost another 20 minutes until we got the kids in the car seats and left. The car next to us was still sitting there waiting for their food. In the 1 hour we waited there we were able to go to Edwards Drive in, order our food and eat. Will not be back, would not recommend and scratched from the Weekend Classic Car Drive In Cruises. more

Best Drive-In Period! 10/14/2008

This is THE place to get a frosty mug of homemade rootbeer and a basket of onion rings! My personal favorite is the pizza burger with all the fixings. With the old school car hops and lights on for service, it really reminds me of a 1950s style place. I have never had a bad meal there, and always look forward to going back. Even though the pizza burger is my fave, sometimes you just have to get one of their delicious coney dogs or corndogs. I can't get enough! Pros: Root Beer, Onion Rings, all the food more

Great Drive-In 7/18/2008

This is the best drive-in in town. Service has always been good and food is good. A must go to drive-in restuarant. Pros: Good food Cons: none I can think of. more

Mug N Bun Best Food with Memories 8/17/2007

This is my first message. I am origianlly from Speedway and was a car hop (earrly and mid 60's) for the Mug n Bun when owned by Morris May and my dad owned the gas station across the street, now known as the tobacco road (gas pumps that are there were my dad's that originate back to 1964). The Mug n Bun has kept the fine tradition of the best conies, real french fries, and root beer since Morris opened it from day 1. I am proud to say the service is still just acceptional as always. I was away from the area for over 30 years, but now i never want to leave so I can still go back to visit memories of a wonderful time in 50's and 60's that Mug N Bun still preserves for all of us who call Speedway home. Let the atmosphere of the car hops remind you of what good service is. more

Wonderful service and food 8/6/2006

Great restaurant for the whole family! The best root beer I've ever had, and extremely nice and friendly owner and workers. Although I'm not from the area, I would go back just for this restaurant. more

Best drive-in, best Pizza in Indy 7/11/2006

Lived in Indy (West side) for 7 years, loved the place. Onion rings and tenderloin were great! My wife loves the Pizza burger with the cheese cooked inside the meat! They have a seperate building for take out Pizza, Pizza is great! The pizza is second only to Bellos in Madison. Pros: Root Beer, Burgers, Pizza Cons: hard to find parking in summer time more

Take it from a Speedway native... 4/28/2006

I lived in Speedway for 20 years. This place is awsome. There homemade Rootbeer and Onion Rings should be rated best in the world. They have tons of Shake and Malt flavors including Cherry, Lemon, Peanut Butter, and Butterscott to name a few and you can mix them. My personal fav is Peanutbutter/Chocolate, pure heaven. There tenderloins and footlong hot dogs are excellent as well. There menu is HUGE and still expanding. Everytime I go there there is at least one new item being offered. It doesn't matter what you're in the mood are, chances are, they make it. They ran the near by Dog n' Suds and Sonic into the ground within 1 to 2 years. The outside dining area has been upgraded over the past few years. It is now roofed AND HAS HEATERS FOR WINTER. All in all, this is one of my favorite places to eat. Pros: HUGE menu, Friendly Environment, Homemade Root Beer more

best tenderloins I ever had! 3/13/2006

Love it! Used to work nearby, and every nice day some friends and I would pile in the car to get really drive-in food. HUGE tenderloins, not thin and pounded out even thinner, but with some real meat in them, excellent homemade fries and the root beer, made on the premises, creamy & frosty, is to die for.....I'm hungry just thinking about it! more

Overated 9/4/2005

Overpriced, dry, burgers, don't use real icecream in the floats. Overall disappointed. Am used to the real thing (California drive-ins, like Mel's in ""American Grafitti"".) Cons: overpriced, dry burgers, bad floats more

best on the west side 7/2/2003

Great home made onion rings, batter dipped and fried to order. Huge tenderloin sandwiches (big enough for three) tomatoes hand sliced thick - not sliced paper thin on a slicer. Home made rootbeer that you can have served in a frosted mug, or buy by the gallon to take home. Home made chili that is always perfect. Can you tell that I'm a regular? more

THEN & NOW 2/7/2003


drive-in heaven 1/10/2003

Great food! Can eat outside even when it is cold, by using their heaters. Will stick to your ribs and at a resonalble cost. My favorite when I am extrememely hungry is the double cheeseburger with the works. Now realize that it is good food, may not be the best for you. But, when you want to treat yourself, this is the place to go more

Just like mom used to make! 8/30/2002

Everything I have tried has been freshly made and tasty, plus the price is right so I can take the kids (and dog) too! more

No place to hang your hat 8/30/2002

The food is great, quick and fresh. You can eat in your car or set at one of many table that include area heaters for extending the outside dining season. The only down side is no inside dining to hang your hat out of the weather. more
