Went there 1 time, was so disappointed with the size of the meat patty. The pickle was larger than the hamburger.The fries were burnt to a crisp, & tasted as tho it was from days before. Have never gone back.Would not recommend it either.

Small burger plus shop. Mainly outside eating but a few stools inside. For years has been a good local attraction, primarily for burgers, fries, root beer and frosty. Probably the first true drive in the state - 1928 I think. Moved a long time ago...More

The Jug has been in operation since 1932. It's a summertime joy. Get a regular Jug burger with its crispy edges and a root beer in a frosty mug. You won't regret it.

Drove past this little place while running errands. My 13 year old begged for a root beer float, so i obliged after seeing the 2 for $5 chili dog sign. Unaware that they come to your car and serve you, this was a neat experience....More

Fifty years I have been going here. Burger, fries and of course root bear. Eat at your car or they do have a few picnic table to sit at.

The Jugs is a good place to eat I think they have the best hamburgers in town. Prices are reasonable, And the service is pretty good. However they are not open year round I wish they was

This is a fun place to go grab a quick bite. The jug offers car hop service still which is fun and nostalgic. You don't get to do that at too many places anymore. The burgers are delicious! I don't know about anything else on...More
