Restaurant Details

Root beer is still made in the basement at Mugs-Up Root Beer Drive-In, as it has been for decades. Sassy carhops dash in and out of the angular orange-and-white building, carrying metal trays heaped with frosty glass mugs and loose-meat Zip Burgers, Whiz Burgers (Zips with cheese), crunchy onion rings, tangy barbecued pork sandwiches and Chili Whiz Dogs. Relive the Steely Dan song and order a Big Black Cow — root beer and vanilla ice cream — with your meal. For diners who prefer something a bit more tart than root beer, there’s fresh limeade. — Charles Ferruzza
