Delicious Food, Great Atmosphere – My husband is an avid root-beer connoisseur as well as a classic car fanatic. When I heard about the Frosted Mug I knew it was the best place to go for his birthday dinner. Our drive down Pulaski was nothing special, but as we approached the Frosted Mug we could see beautiful classic cars lined up on both sides of the drive in. We parked and went in to the small counter in the front of the store. We both ordered cheeseburgers, fries, and large root beers at a total of less than $20.00. We had heard that the Frosted Mug was known for it's delicious home-made root bear and we were very impressed by the taste, fizziness, and creaminess of the product. We didn't know how much root beer would come in the large size, but it turned out to be over 40oz in a frosted glass mug! The burgers had a good flavor and thickness, and our fries were juicy and crisp. Although we ate in the picnic area, many others had their food brought right to their cars or ate inside. This was a great first time experience and we have frequented there many times since then. We hope you enjoy the Frosted Mug as much as we did!
Don't Eat Here! – We live about twenty minutes from Frosted Mug and made a trip out to it on a Saturday night after seeing them on a Food Network show (Dives, Diners, and Drive Ins). We ordered a couple of beef sandwiches, a root beer float, large shake, burger, and an order fries. Ther are no prices posted for floats or shakes so I was surprised whwn the bill came out to $23.60! They charge $6.20 for the shake and $3.50 for the float which consisted of 1/2 glass of root beer, and 1/3 glass of soft-serve ice cream. The shake was so thin it resembled little more than cold sweetened milk(WHAT A RIP-OFF!!!!). We get over the sticker shock and proceed outside to eat our meal. Me and my date bite into our sandwiches and were both disgusted. The beef was extremely fatty to the point of globs on the meat! The meat was sliced with the grain which makes it similar to beef jerky when you bite into it
. The fact that it was cut wrong was further enhanced by several pieces sliced up to a quarter of an inch thick. Beef should always be sliced as thin as possible for good flavor and so a person doesn't have to chew on it like a cow does grass. When I complained to the owner, who happened to be sitting in the restaurant, he immediately noticed the meat was bad and cut wrong and replied that he would replace the sandwiches but not refund my money. All I could think was, "If they couldn't make it right the first time what would I get the second time." The owner continued to carry himself like a con artist and we decided to take our losses and go. He mentioned that they were there for a long time and it was good food that got him there. The restaurant had no more than 3 patrons while we were there and they stuff like pizza puffs. They may have served decent food in the past, but it appears that they are finished with that idea !thewith
Drop in sometime! – I think this is one of the nicest drive-ins/burger joints in the country. It's nothing fancy, but the food is always good to great, the girls are nice and friendly, and I love the pictures on the walls. An old drive-in from the '50's.
