“Still a favorite 25 years later!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

I had the opportunity to go back to my alma mater, Va Tech, recently for a football game. The first restaurant I ate in when I arrived on campus in Fall 1986 was Mike's Grill. The burgers were great and the prices were very reasonable for a college student. And now 26 years later, the prices are still great and the burgers are still a treat. Nothing fancy - just a good quality of meat, a nice portion and good service. Enjoyed the fries as well. Ate dinner for less than $8 including tip.

There's nothing fancy about this place but it's a great spot for spending some time with friends or family. You seat yourself as a table becomes available and you go to the cash register to pay. Service is good.

“Don't know what the big deal is”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

We went to Mike's for a fast lunch lured by the promise of the best burger. Not really. The service was average and the food was too. The best burger I have had in a restaurant is at Zinburger in the southwestern US. It is a Fox concept restaurant. Sure wish they were national. Will not be revisiting Mike's.

“An old favorite”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

Mike's hasn't changed in years. The service is good, the food is priced reasonably. The food is good, location is great. I wish they had Coke products rather than Pepsi, though, and at the very least, that they brewed their own iced tea.

There is no better cheeseburger on the planet! I've been eating them for 27 years and they only get better!
