It is small but this is truly a DRIVE-IN! You drive up, park look at the big outdoor menu. The gal comes up to your vehicle with the change maker on her waist and order slip. You order just like you did with A&W years ago. Fun, convenient and pretty good Root Beer! The Burgers are loose meat burgers. Very interesting but good! BBQ Beef was hot and flavorful. Style is Fun, Fast Food. Tired of the old cheapy standard archs and crowns? Go Here. lift up your window, let them serve you and have fun eating in your vehicle!

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.

I still have not escaped the Whizburger (loose meat), fries, & frosty mug of root beer after all these years.
