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 the menu because I can't order anything else but the burgers they are that good!... More

We stopped in to get a little ice cream and were very pleased with the ice cream and the car-hop service. We will return here soon to try more of their good food.

Highly recommend. You can eat in your car and be waited on by a car hop or sit under a canopy at a picnic table or at a small counter inside.Great burgers!!! Only open warm weather months. This is a place that if I were driving by Middletown on Interstate 75 that I would drive into town to eat at.

This is a great little place to stop and sit in your car and have a great burger and fries. And if you don't want to sit in your car you can always get out and sit at there picnic tables which is very convenient

I've been eating these burgers for years. They are like the old drugstore grill. You can eat in your car, take home or on the picnic tables.

The Jug is a classic drive-in restaurant complete with carhops. It has been in business for 80+ years for one reason: great burgers. This restaurant is a holdover from a simpler time.
