I had walked by the restaurants many times before I dined in. The service was awkward with our server but there were two other servers who checked on us, one of whom was peppy and the other of whom was knowledgeable and attentive. It took a long time to receive our drinks but we did before our food arrived. Everyone,... More

This family owned restaurant, located at the entrance to Virginia Tech (the Mall) on Main street, has long been a huge favorite of Blacksburg residents. Known for their delicious half pound cheeseburgers and fries, they also serve up excellent pizza, calzones and cheese steaks. Add a small Greek salad to any of these items and you've got a meal you... More

Mike used to say that he made one thing and he made it really well. If you want a simply fabulous cheeseburger, Mike's Grill is where you go when you are in Blacksburg, Virginia. It is never disappointing. The french fries are good, too, but best eaten hot. At Mike's, you can actually get a few more things other than... More

Absolutely the best burgers in town! This is a Blacksburg icon! Don't be deceived by the lackluster interior because the burgers were so good. Don't come here for decorating tips as this is "old School" (literally) and not much has changed in terms of the interior over all their years in business. However, as I said before this is the...

Met a friend here today for lunch. We both ordered Hamburgers with fries so that's all I can review. The Hamburger was good but nothing extraordinary. It was dripping all over the place which some people really like. I think it just makes for a soggy bun. The fries were average. The staff was friendly. You don't get silverware unless... More

Spent several nights in Blacksburg for 2013 Virginia Tech student move-in. Having heard great things about Mike's, we decided to check them out. Our orders were taken promptly, and our drinks quickly. Our food, however, took nearly one and one half hours to arrive! Virtually all of the customers seated around us also experienced the same ridiculously long wait. Had... More

I was in Blacksburg with my family and we stopped at Mikes for dinner. The highlight of the meal was definitely the burgers - they were huge and tasted great. The interior of the restaurant could use an update - it looks about the same as it did in 1986 when I last visited Mike's. Even though they were not... More

Mike's Grill is just one of those go-to places in Blacksburg. Everyone raves about the burgers. Personally I love their calzones. They are huge and the bread is definitely made fresh. Best of all, the price can't be beat on anything there. When it comes to the scenery, this place is straight out of the '70s and '80s. I love... More

I went here on a recommendation from a VT alum. She said to not be deceived by the lackluster interior because the burgers were so good. The interior was pretty lackluster though. There is a difference between old-style/retro/nostalgic and tired. This place was tired. Hulking old TVs, dim lights, and old tables and booths were the highlight here. The menu... More
