Burgers, beignets and baseball — name a better trio. This burger joint is the “sibling” of Mo’Bay Beignet Co, and was created as an homage to the owner’s sons’ love for both baseball and burgers. Since 2021, when the owner Jaclyn’s Robinson’s idea became a reality, the restaurant has been booming.

The tables and walls inside feature photos of baseball teams from the Mobile area, so you may see some familiar faces while you eat a tasty meal. Their most popular burger is called the “Player’s Choice,” as you basically get to choose whatever you want on it.
