There is treating yourself, and then there’s making your way to the milkshake bar of The Mason Jar Restaurant. Affectionately referred to as The Jar, this family-friendly eatery is nestled just south of Auburn University in Auburn, Alabama, and the menu includes everything your Southern appetite could possible desire. Start with fried pickles or fried green tomatoes, then order up the country fried steak, shrimp and grits, or chicken and dumplings for dinner. Obviously, you’ll need an order of chicken wings, fried okra or cornbread to tide you over if you miss out on the loaded lunch buffet.
But for desert, there is only one item you need to worry about: Extreme Milkshakes.
Extreme Milkshakes at The Mason Jar
Yeah, these monsters are going to take a village to put down, then promptly require a long and well-earned nap.
Only In Your State explains:
“Each Extreme Milkshake… comes with a variety of toppings, including candy bars, popsicles, cupcakes, fruit, cotton candy, cheesecake, and so much more. Because these specialty milkshakes are rather large, you’ll want to bring appetite or be prepared to share.”
“We love our guests and are thrilled to share our families recipes with them,” The Mason Jar told us. “We take great pride that we are in Auburn, and we want all of our visitors to have a fun enjoyable experience and love coming to Auburn!”
The best part? They only cost 10 dollars! Man, if you’re anywhere near Auburn or are planning to visit during college football season in the fall, you need to take a trip to South College Street and dive headfirst into these works of art for yourself.

I came for 3 main things tonight – fried green tomatoes, the many flavors of lemonades and this AMAZING & DELICIOUS Extreme peach milkshake!! Now the Southern dinner was good as well but these 3 things were my favorite. The fried green tomatoes reminded me of the ones my Oma used to make us. My mango 🥭 lemonade 🍋 was so light and refreshing. The peach 🍑 milkshake 😍💕🥰😋 Hands down amazing! I will definitely be stopping by the next time we are traveling through Alabama.Advertisement
Only In Your State says that The Mason Jar’s milkshake bar is open from 4:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. during the week, on Saturdays from noon to 8:30 p.m., and is closed on Sundays because, well, I guess if you down one of these incredible deserts you’ll be sleeping in all day on Monday.
