Great BBQ shack, will eat there again and again

Probably the best baby back ribs I've eaten to date. The service and the food quality were outstanding. Highly recommended to anyone coming into the area.

We had weekend dinner here. Good variety of BBQ, and all of high quality. No draft beer though, only bottled. Fun decor and easy feel. Friendly and efficient staff. Boudin was a good addition to the shrimps. Served on plastic a minus: plate, forks, knifes. Beer in bottle no glass. Necktie folk dont bother.

The brisket and the pulled-pork are perfectly cooked. They have their own brand of BBQ sauce that is also excellent. The garlic knot rolls don't even need butter added they are so good. Only negative would be their yellow potato salad - it taste like the filling in a deviled egg and not something I would try again as I... More

We have gone to Big Mike's for years, because we think it is the best BBQ in Houma. LA. Before the old location burned down, we would drive near that old location and you could just smell the smoky BBQ in the air. Other reviewers are right you get a limp white bread slice, but that was the way Mike... More

Nice atmosphere. Friendly people. Good food. Small portions. Overpriced. Bread is merely a slice from a loaf of bread. If you like BBQ and don't mind paying too much, then this is the place to go.

Baby back Ribs and BBQ shrimp was delicious. Green beans was cooked just right, not mushy, great flavor. What a treat to finally have a salad made with spring greens and not iceberg lettuce. Share the bread pudding it is very rich and amazing

We are staying at the 12 Oaks Plantation (I will definitely write my review after this-amazing B&B). So we wanted a bite and first went to A-Bear cafe but we weren't in the mood for catfish. We ended up at Big Mikes! Good call!!! We walked in and sat down waiting for someone to come to take our order. Rule... More

There was nothing to dislike. The smell of cooking BBQ in the air when I got out of the car told me I was in for a real treat for lunch. I'd already heard how fantastic the brisket was and it didn't disappoint. The sausage is locally made and was absolutely delicious. Had the baked beans and potato salad as... More
