I visited Mobile for one night and asked locals where to eat. I wanted a local place, not a touristy place. Callaghan's was recommended to me because of the atmosphere and the burgers. I found the atmosphere to be great. It was fun and friendly. The best part: the burgers were awesome. We had the chips and french onion dip... More

You have to try their burgers & the tomato cucumber salad. Food is great. Noise inside is way too loud. Stay outside to eat or you can't talk to the people who are with you. It needs something inside to absorb sound.

This is the best burger and the best place for music in Mobile. Sunday nights at Callaghans are what make Mobile great. JT and his entire staff do a phenomenal job.

Best burger places will have this eatery on their list. Neat neighborhood location. A place where you will be elbow to elbow with locals.

Very interesting little pub that has been around awhile. Located in a picturesque historic district in Mobile. All three of us had burgers for lunch. They were thick, juicy, and cooked as ordered. Sampled three different sides and they were all excellent. A must see stop when in Mobile.

Callaghan's has been serving burgers and beers on the edge of the Oakleigh Garden District for more than 60 years. Once a "club" to whom you had to pay an entrance fee, it has transformed into the heart and soul of the Midtown neighborhood. The best burgers in Mobile, and voted best burger in Alabama by USA today, the simple... More

Holds true to most if not all of the other reviews. We both had the burger; cooked to spot on temperature. Good beer and a plentiful selection both bottled and on tap. It's definitely a local hangout and everyone's welcome. Good service and the prices can't be beat.

Great hamburgers and great music- a soft acoustic guitar and lovely voice complemented our meal. Cold beer, great food- bread pudding with a whiskey sauce with a wallop! Go there!
