“A hidden treasure in Independence.”
Reviewed 19 November 2011

If you are looking for great food on a budget then Mugs Up is a must for you. Old fashioned drive in with a focus on great food delivered personally. I am surprised the parking lot is not standing room only. Once trying this I am not sure that I would return to the other drive ins in town.

“Old style drive in”
Reviewed 24 November 2009

I still have not escaped the Whizburger (loose meat), fries, & frosty mug of root beer after all these years.
Car hop service.
Give it a try on a nice day.

Lifetime tradition. The ordering of "Black Cows" and "Whiz Burgers" is mandatory.
