This place is horrible !! All of the burgers are shaped the same, which means they are frozen and formed . The texture is awful and the fact that they charge the prices they do make you believe it is a fresh hand patty like you make at home. This is one of the biggest jokes of a franchise going,... More

I came in on a Sunday for lunch and sat at the bar. The service was ok, but the patty melt was outstanding. The beef was perfectly cooked, there was a little bit of an unexpected spiciness (which was good), and the bun had a little bit of sweetness, almost like a biscuit. Very, very good. The onion rings, which... More

I have finally found my perfect hamburger. No franchise. Ate for lunch with wife and a family relative. Owners got the bug to open their own business after spending time in Hawai. This was sirloin steak with onions, peppers and pepper jack cheese on top of a beef patty. The bun was a normal hamburger bun, buttered and toasted. The... More

Everytime I have a good experience in this restaurant. The service and the food are very good. I only have to bad things to say about this place. I don't recommend the "Mug's queso dip", it had a weird tast. The bathroom's area didn't have a nice smell.

Usually crowded but with good reason, the burgers are outstanding! I love the selection of unique burgers and I always enjoy Will's All American burger but there are so many great items to chose from. Prices are reasonable and I have found the service to always be good. Just don't expect to walk right in and order...there are many hungry... More

Came in soon before closing, had no problem seating us. Burgers were great as well as the shrimp appetizer. Hung out and watched a ball game, due to a hammering rain outside, nice atmosphere and no rush to get us out after closing. Would definitely go back. Have been to the one in Mobile, same great food.

The hamburgers at Mugshots are outstanding, best I have ever had anywhere. I had bacon, lettuce, tomato, onion and BBQ sauce on my burger. Other's at my table had different burgers and they were all equally happy. The bun is a delicious, hawaiin bun. This is a must try.

We order take out from Mugshots often, and it's always delicious. The Pepper jack burger and chili are always yummy! Their french fries and onion rings are really, really good!

The wait is always RIDICULOUS! There is no waiting area so you are constantly in the way and having to move. There is hardly any room for parties over four and the service is mediocre at best. It is one of the best burgers in Birmingham but the good does not outweigh the bad.
