This restaurant is a "meat-lovers" paradise, from BBQ, dry rub and hot and spicy. If you're in the mood for meat, but not sure exactly what type, go to Big Mikes for an awesome feast along with friendly service from a group of great people!

My Dad has been to Big Mike's several times. I would say he is not a BBQ eater so to my surprise he said let's go here for lunch. We went Saturday. He said it was not as crowed on Saturday as it is during the week. I had the spare rib plate with potato salad and jambalaya. Dad had... More

I visited the restaurant before it burned down. So this was years ago but I really enjoyed the food. Great value at great price. I'm sure the prices went up by now though

Great place to go for ribs. Fall off the bone and great sauce. Casual dinning and serve yourself when it comes to ordering.

Loved the delicious food !! Did not like the food served in take-home containers, but I understand that it saves dishwashing and easily provides customers with a means to take home left-overs from the plentiful amount of food.

We have been here in may 28th 2014. We entered the restaurant 15 minutes before closing and asked if it is still possible to get dinner. They were laughing and told us..... of course! You have to order your meal at the cashier and pay. A few minutes later they bring the food to your table. The food is served... More

I have eaten at Big Mike's on numerous occasions. It is by far the best barbecue in Houma and probably in South Louisiana. The portions are very generous and the food is always fresh. My favorites are the three meat platters with ribs, pulled pork and either brisket or sausage. Frankly though it is all very good. The bread pudding... More

I would put Big Mike up against any BBQ joint in Memphis! There's something really special going on here. Must try his Jambalaya and smoked crawfish boudin.

We catered out some Big Mike's Q the other night and three days later I'm still thinking about it. We got a ton of ribs, sliced Q, beans, potato salad and white bread. The BBQ was great and not being a huge rib fan I found them to be the best. We also had a few pieces of chicken too.... More
