I have been eating zip burgers and drinking their great root beer since 1961. My mom worked for Mug's up at the Merriam KS location in the early 1960's before I was born. I just love the zip burger. I now live in Indiana and every time I get to Kansas city I get some zip burgers to bring back home with me. I once accidentally left my zip burgers behind and wanted my mom to ship them to me, but we learned we could not ship them. even though my mom worked for Mug's Up she did not remember the recipe, We tried and tried and got some what close to the same taste, but was not the same. I was just there and was shocked to learn I could now buy the seasoning this just made my heart dance with joy...Thanks Mug's up

Mugs up is a Drive In restaurant that has been around for years. They are known for their rootbeer floats. The also have great burgers and fries as well as onion rings and other greasy food. Their food has been consistently good each time I have visited. The car hops bring the food out to you and you can eat it in their car. The servers are always very friendly. The prices are very reasonable. Sometimes they can get busy on Friday and Saturday nights and you have to wait for a spot because that don't have that many, but it is well worth the wait. Once you try this place you will have to come back.

This place is just the greatest.. They have the most quaint little drive inn .. They offer the best rootbeer floats (black cows) in town.. terrific prices and always a friendly smile and the employees know you by name... When I had a special order and they messed it up, they went out of their way to make things right, not only did they correct the order but we got half off and free drinks on our next visit..

Throughout my life I was told the story of how Mugs Up Rootbeer ran through my blood. My Grandfather took my father there while my father was in his teens (when the classic drive-in Mugs Up was created). Then as a child my father treated me to Mugs Up. I have never had anything so wonderful. Throughout my life this has been a very special treat. I don't live close to Mugs Up, but it is well worth the travel and is a great place for a nice night out. I would recommend the experience of Mugs Up to any and everyone.
