You expect great Creole food when you are down on da bayou, but good barbecue? We saw it and had to try it. There is a reason Big Mike is Big. This joint has some good smoked meat and sides. And in true Cajun form, it wouldn't be a South Louisiana kitchen if it didn't have boudin sausage. If you... More

We went to Big Mike's on a Wednesday evening. There was 7 of us. We were able to sit together and got our food very quickly. As usual, the food was wonderful. They cook the best green beans ever. So tasty. The whole meal was excellent.

Delicious every time. Green beans better than your mothers. Delicious pulled pork and smoked chicken. Priced right.

I admit the food is wonderful. Saturday evening I went to Big Mike's and found that the handicapped parking spaces were taken up by a tent and tables. I couldn't believe my eyes. I'm very disappointed in Big Mike's. Even if what they did wasn't illegal it certainly wasn't the right thing to do.

You will be taken away as soon as you walk in the door. We tried all the meat and every piece was fabulous. Great customer service, very friendly and helpful.

Great smoked food here. Mike's is by the Civic Center near "downtown" Houma.Anyway, it's a nice part of town and the owner is a very nice guy who is passionate about his product. We eat there regularly but not frequently because it's about a 20 minute drive for us. However, it's also our go-to place for big catered things like... More

We've been there several times. They serve delicious bbq. The place is unique and very casual. Great for lunch. First you place your order and then get your table. They will call when the food is ready.

I suggest this for anyone. The BBQ was sweet and delicious. It taste just like my mom made back home in Seattle. Not only that, the sides were delicious including the potato salad. A place I love to visit again and again with my family.

I have never had anything from Big Mike's that I did not like. The baby back ribs are my favorite by far! Great atmosphere, fast and pleasant service! Big Mike's is at the top of my favorite places to eat list!

Best BBQ in town. The pulled pork and the ribs are to die for. The down home feel of this place is sure to please everyone.

Thank Stacy D
