“Good burgers, better than McDs, same league as Burger King”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

Mike's Burgers offers a decent burger, on par with the quality you can find 100 yards away at Burger King, at a cheaper price on the one hand, but minus the comforts of peace and quiet and A/C on the other. BK's service is significantly better.

Food: Similar quality to Burger King, better than McDonalds.

Restaurant (building): Fixed, permanent, covered open air stand under a roof. I am familiar with two locations: One is right on the moat, about 100 yards from the Tha Pae Gate, so I will never eat there -- way too noisy with heavy traffic passing by, literally 10 feet from where you are eating. The other location, at the entrance to the Muay Thai boxing / girlie bar complex does not open until 5 pm, but is much quieter, on Loi Kroh Road, which has light vehicle traffic, and the restaurant is further from the street, maybe 10 yards. BK, about 100 yards from the latter location at the Night Bazaar, is air conditioned, with ambient comforts.

Service: Average to indifferent.

Conclusion: I eat about two burgers per month. I can take Mikes or leave them. If it's hot out, or if I'm feeling irritable, I'll go to BK for the A/C or to avoid the possibility of indifferent service, respectively.

“A simple burger stand”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

Mike's is my kind of burger joint: simple, straight forward, and not a drop of pretentiousness. Located just a little bit north of the east gate to the city, the restaurant consists of a few stools along the sidewalk next to the counter.

Ordering is simple; you pick the burger you want and the lady behind the counter makes it for you the way you want. No fuss, no muss. A bacon chessburger with fries and a drink will set you back about 5.50 american.

Final thought: Nothing really special but perfect for when the burger craving catches up to you in Chiang Mai.

“The worst meal in town”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

During numerous visits to Chiang Mai, I have used Mike's Burgers about three times. Cheap, fast, un-nutritious food is what it is. The last burger chips I had there was so bad I threw them away!

“Good cure for midnight hunger !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

They are open from 8.30am-3.00 am . Price may be a little on the high side but its worth it because they come in good size as well. Fish burger is huge and serves with onion rings and some tomatoes/lettuce. Delicious. They have another kiosk near the daily night bazaar ( near Le Meridien hotel).
