“Great local place.”
Reviewed April 2, 2012

The burgers are really good. I am always surprised at the University of Alabama students that don't realize how tasty the food is at Hooligan's since it is so close to campus. It has good prices as well. Some foodies might consider this middle eastern style fast food but that is okay with me and plenty of other diners!

“Solid fare”
Reviewed March 27, 2012

Hooligans does some things better than average. I like the tilapia dishes and the middle eastern specialties. Interesting mint tea. Worth a visit when you want good food at good value.

“Simple but good”
Reviewed January 8, 2012

Hooligans is one of my favorite lunch spots. The menu is an eclectic mix of Mediterranean food (gyros, kabobs, falafel, etc) and American burgers. The food is prepared to order and everything tastes excellent. The prices are VERY reasonable for the quality and quantity of food you get, so it represents a GREAT value for the dollar.

The only downsides are the place is generally crowded and the seating is cramped, so it tends to be loud and a feeling of being "all up in your neighbors business". The outdoor seating, while simple patio furniture, generally represents the best bet for not being as crowded.

“Decent Food & Decent Prices”
Reviewed January 6, 2012

The place is a Tuscaloosa staple for the students. Their gyros are pretty good and their burgers are awesome. Prices are reasonable. I've been several times and will return many more.

Service usually isn't too nice but the food makes up for it. One time when I asked the chef what gyro meat consisted of, his reply was "its gyro meat" to which I said "Ahhh gyro meat!".

The building is pretty run down, but still functional. I am all about efficiency but this place is on the verge of being a dump.

“Great little place”
Reviewed July 19, 2011

Hooligans is one of those local places that is frequented by students and the lucky ones who know its there! Great Mediterranean food, GREAT burgers and fries. The cheeseburger & fries combo is about $6, which you can't beat for a quick, made to order burger. Outdoor seating is available too. Be aware though, if you're a sucker for sweet tea like me, you might be a little disappointed, as its the one thing they don't serve!
