'What does this remind you of?' Brian Daley asked. I answered, 'The 1950s.' It is a good example of tailfin-era excess, but in this case with a pair of burgers, cheese, bacon, all sorts of condiments, a burger bun and a slice of bread in the middle that makes a single sandwich into a crazy tower.

The restaurant's namesake meal: in the foreground, a bun filled with a breaded pork tenderloin; in the background, a mug of root beer. Way in back, you can see a car hop attending customers in their car.

I must admit we're a little spoiled... and fortunate... having Mug n'Bun right here in our little town of Speedway, Indiana.  We live just over a mile away from this icon, and we do our best throughout the year to keep them in business.  Nothing better than a Mug n'Bun tenderloin, onion rings, and frosty root beer to satisfy the desires of one's stomach!

Remember: the polite drive-in customer uses a quick flash of the lights, not a blast of the horn, to request service.

Mug 'N' Bun actually started as the Frost Top drive-in in 1942. Its recipe for root beer supposedly took Morris May, the original owner, two years to develop.

The small size comes in a frosty mug. They still make their own root beer! Sooo good on an 80F April day.

It isn't only the icy mug that makes this root beer special. It really has a taste of its own.
