Super friendly service and good BBQ

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

This is a clean down home place. Nothing fancy about it, but the service and BBQ is great! If i need to pick up supper it has great food to take out. I real like the turkey and the ribs.

I love the smoked Turkey...It's the best in town. My only negative is when I go and they are out of the Turnkey, that only states how good it truly is. The pulled pork is also great. I haven't tried the burgers yet but I hear they are really good. I highly recommend Big Mike's to everyone.

Big Mike's offers excellent BBQ, grilled boudin, and probably the BEST burgers in town! Service is quick and friendly! Mike absolutely lives up to his title of BBQ Champion.

Went here the other night while visiting Louisiana. The atmosphere was neat. I didn't like that you have to go up to order. It'd be nice if they just took your order at the table. The potato salad was great! I've had more tender and flavorful brisket but this one wasn't bad at all. They need more than two sauce... More

For an Englishman working in Houma a long way from home this place is just sheer comfort food, the potato salad is to die for! If only we could have this in the UK! i would be happy!

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.
