I always looked forward to eating here as a kid on my parents travels here and there. One of my favorite has always been their fried mushrooms. I have had their burgers as well and have had their subs. I have to say this is the place to eat at if you ever get the chance. If you get to... More

The choices of Bar-b-que were very tasty. I liked the option of putting the coleslaw on the sandwich. Quick service getting the food to you. Now your option is to take it home, or eat it on a bench, under a roof that looks out onto the town's main road, literally. You may actually be there on a day when... More

been there a few times, not much to get and go in mountain city. The chopped pork sandwich is good, but eat it quick because you will have really soggy bun if you don't. The staff seems really nice and they are open later than most Mom and Pop eateries in MT City. Not saying I won't go back, but... More

Lots of people really like Mike's but I'm afraid the pork, the amount of fat and the eating in my car (no dining but a picnic table) keep me from giving an A+. AND I'm still seeking BBQ chicken which this place does not have.

Wish they could BBQ/Smoke 1/2 chickens. Also, Ribs. Need better seating outside. Usually pick up food and take home and is cold by the time we get home on Hwy. 67.

We've grabbed quick BBQ at Mike's several times. I consider it ok but I wouldn't go out of my way to get there. We've had the BBQ combo plate each time. Outside, covered picnic tables to eat on.

love the thin sliced or pulled pork bbq served here. it drips but we like it that way around these parts! fries are seasoned with some sort of bbq/salt and they are good. Italian subs are great. hot dog with chili and onion is great. Hamburger was big but had little flavor, will pass on those from now on. went... More

to be fair, I only ate there once. The product was subpar, the help was indifferent; I couldn't eat the whole thing. Big Loui's on Friday night BBQ is the far better deal. a mile down the road in Midway
