Mugshots in Crafton-Ingram Shopping Center

Mugshots is a neighborhood bar/restaurant famous for Friday fish specials. They have been voted "Best Fish Sandwich in Pittsburgh" and with one bite, you know why. The key to the perfect fish fry- for me anyway- is that crispiness on the outside and the tender, flaky fish on the inside. This was fried fish nirvana. The mac and cheese was outstanding, and even the cole slaw was flavorful in a good way (and I don't generally like cole slaw). I am sure that everything on their menu is good, but if you want the fish, you have to go on Friday.

If you are a fan of Pittsburgh professional sports teams, you'll love the decor, which is a hodgepodge of team and player photos of past and present local sports icons. It would be a fun place to go to watch a football game- so remember that if you are ever in town and need that perfect neighborhood bar to drink a few beers and watch a game. Just a little friendly advice- no matter how cute you think you are, if you're not a Steelers fan, don't wear your Eagles ...oh um, I mean your favorite team's jersey to Mugshots. Trust me, words can hurt...and the eggs.
