Mugshots Grill and Bar, Tuscaloosa

By Leigh Bratina

It's football season, and for many it endears a road trip to ones favorite college town. For me, it's Tuscaloosa, where I can enjoy a lunch with my son, "Bama" who happens to be attending the University of Alabama. Those that are making the trip will not want to miss out on the hamburger among hamburgers at Mugshots Grill and Bar. My son, Bama claims that the Mugshots burgers are the best he has ever eaten. And that's alot of burgers. Alot.

Last week my mother and I made a roadtrip to Tuscaloosa for some personal business. Yet, we made sure to carve in some lunch time at MugShots!

Mugshots was created by two college graduates that had dream of owning their own restaurant that served great food and cold drinks at a fair price. They succeeded. With a menu comparable to a Buffalo Wild Wings or Bob Baumhowers, there is something for everyone. I decided to splurge (so much for the weight watch). I got the Mombo Combo Appetizer Plate. It comes with your choice of three appetizer sides. I chose the Davis Dill Pickle Chips, Scooter MooCow Cheese Wedges and fries ($8.50).

Mom got the Bond (Howard not James ) Sandwich, a 6 oz. grilled chicken breast topped with cheddar cheese, smoky BBQ sauce, lettuce and tomato ($6.95). The food was great. I hardly ate 1/4 of mine as it was huge. Mom could only finish half of her sandwich. Bama (at home) lucked out for he was the recipient of our left overs.

While at Mugshots it is fun to read and look over the walls. Customers are asked to submit photos of themselves wearing the Mugshots logo T-Shirt while they are either doing something "notable" or on vacation somewhere. I took a photograph of Bama wearing his sometime ago and did send it in. Maybe if we're lucky it will grace the walls of Mugshots Fame.

(The picture of "Bama" was taken in Orange Beach, Alabama)
