Fast-ish food with a conscience? That’s how they roll at The Mug in Greenfield, Indiana. The “farm-to-curb” eatery takes advantage of locally sourced ingredients from owner Chris Baggott’s nearby Tyner Pond Farm. Located about a half hour outside downtown Indianapolis, the drive-in restaurant is actually a rebooted version of The Frosty Mug, a local fixture for 50 years that closed in 2013. Baggott snagged the property at an auction a year later. Although his menu may look simple (hot dogs, burgers, garlic fries, ice cream), he’s made a point to excise factory-farmed meat and preservative-packed produce. The classic Indiana pork tenderloin sandwich, served “Mug Style” with pickled jalapeños and shredded cabbage, is one for the record books: juicy and crispy with a LOL pork-to-bun ratio.
