Very good burgers and such....

My first time to visit this restaurant. My Middleberger was very tasty, as was the bun; but the bun was a bit crumbly. The sweet potato fries were a nice change from regular fries. Large plastic cups of water held plenty of water. The service was good on a very busy night.

I have always enjoyed the food at Mugshots. I have had a few of their burgers but my favorite is the Pineapple Bond. I highly recommend getting extra sauce to dip your fries in. They have great tasting fries. The service has been good every time I have eaten there and no long wait to get your food. They serve... More

Great location but lacking on most of everything else. Many burgers to choose from and I have only had a few so far so maybe I'm still just a order away from something really good. Chili cheese fries are not to bad. Give it a try and see if it's just me.

These burgers are consistent, and the peanut butter and bacon burger is remarkably good. This is a favorite for the whole family.

The burgers here are the best in town. Their sweet potato fries are also amazing. If I want to cheat on my daily diet, and I'm looking for a burger...THIS is the place.

This was my first, and definitely my last, visit to Mugshots. The burgers had been praised for the flavor and size by a member of our party. The food that came did not measure up to the hype. My hamburger was the Come Back Burger. The hamburger patty appeared to be a preformed variety. The meat was not hand patted... More

Used to love the burgers here. Not anymore. Now they taste like they use frozen preformed patties (Bubba Burgers come to mind) and other lesser quality ingredients, I feel like they did a bait and switch! The first few years that this location was opened this Mugshots served up pretty much the best burgers in town. They did quite well... More

While in Birmingham, my friend who lives there recommended that we go have a burger at Mugshots. They have very unusual burgers on their menu. I had the Will's All American Burger that included a fried egg and bacon in the mix. I didn't opt for the grape jelly option. They really play with flavors - knowing how to make... More

Great selection of hamburgers, sandwiches, and beer! Sport TV's for those that need entertainment. Outside dining if desired. LOVE the peanut butter hamburger, onion rings were super HOT OUT THE FRYER!. French fries were some of my favorites!

Craving a really good burger we headed to MugShots . The menu options didn't disappoint , but I was surprised at how above and beyond they went from typical bar food . A host of decadent burgers and fries options , accompanied by some really yummy sounding salads . For our first visit we opted to stay with what they... More
