Worst Service Ever – 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.

Best Drive-In Period! – 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!

Great Drive-In – This is the best drive-in in town. Service has always been good and food is good. A must go to drive-in restuarant.

Mug N Bun Best Food with Memories – 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.

Wonderful service and food – 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.

Best pizza in Indy. – I don't know what people are smoking before the eat their pizza, but all the other places are terrible compared to Mug N Bun. Moved away to Northwest Indiana and have been trying for a year and half to find pizza half as good as Mug N Bun. Last year at the Brickyard, I ordered one and picked it up and took it back to the campground!

Take it from a Speedway native... – 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.

best tenderloins I ever had! – 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!

Overated – 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".)

This Westside landmark serves curbside double cheeseburgers with Wonderbread tucked between the patties. – The Scene
One of a handful of original drive-in restaurants in the area, Mug-n-Bun continues to hang trays of burgers and fries on customers' car windows at this squat cement block building. Mug-n-Bun has nothing to do with all that funky retro stuff that new eateries are trying to replicate with their spanking-new Naugahyde and Coca-Cola color schemes. Mug-n-Bun's unflattering yellow and brown paint and no-nonsense car-hops--not on roller skates, thank you very much--is the real deal. Turn on your headlights when you're ready to order, and don't honk your horn under any circumstance.

The Food
Get ready for some old-fashioned double cheeseburgers with Wonderbread slices between the patties, wagon wheel breaded tenderloins, Coney dogs, and large onion rings. Wash it all down with Mug-n-Bun's own supersweet, frothy root beer. Get it with a dollop of soft-serve ice cream, and you've got the perfect root beer float.
