The best BBQ

If you are looking for real BBQ go to Big Mikes, not like some of those places that you can't even tell they are smoking meat nearby. Big Mikes has that real authentic smokehouse smell. Makes me hungry thinking about it.

Big Mike serves consistently the same quality of food. The portions are huge in my opinion and you get your monies worth. The best grilled boudin around the South- Louisiana area. On my recent visit I had the Barbecued Brisket Sandwich with coleslaw and grilled Boudin. Always a pleasure to eat here, with a large variety of barbecued meats.

This is the BEST brisket you will eat!! Tender, lean and flavorful. Do NOT miss this place. Houma has lots of seafood places but this is THE PLACE for BBQ

I have dined here for lunch on several occasions and the menu items are delicious. The meats are seasoned well and very tender. Although I have not dined here in the evenings, the lunch portions are perfect. The staff provides excellent customer service every time. They open at 11 a.m....and I would suggest arriving prior to 12 p.m. as they... More

First off, I never thought I would crave turkey like I do until I tried Big Mike's smoked turkey breast. Absolutely divine! Juicy, tender, and smokey...what more could you ask for? The grilled shrimp are great as well. I personally always pair my meal up with double green beans, because those are a treat in and of itself. However...take my... More

Waitress and service staff were friendly and helpful. They were out of brisket and chicken when we arrived about 7:30 pm Saturday night but the shrimp, sausage and pulled pork were all good. Portions were larger than need to be.

Have tried Big Mike's a few times. Never disappointed! Shared a two meat platter with my wife because the portions are so large. Great side items too!

It is quite a while ago that I visited this very specific place, but I still remember it and this is a good sign! During my short stay in Houma I was recommended by a Lady Taxi driver to this Restaurant. The rustic restaurant is quite quaint. The food is fantastic unfortunately served on plastic plates
