“Simply delightful.”
Reviewed May 20, 2014

We were driving across country and Mike's came up on our GPS at dinner time and we decided to take a chance. So happy that we did!! A wonderful meal at an amazing price served by friendly people in a clean cheerful setting!! One of the best meals of our trip. So far from having another meal in a chain restaurant. Make sure you try the fried pie!

“One of my favorites”
Reviewed May 7, 2014

Mike's is one of my favorite restaurants. My wife and I do a lot of traveling and when we're in Arkansas, we will go out of our way to dine at Mike's. Great food, great staff, friendly atmosphere! I recently had their New York Steak dinner for $18 and it was as good as any $50 steak I've eaten. My wife had their small ribeye and she loved it. We've also had the hamburger steak and the chicken dinner. You couldn't prepare it at home any tastier. If you're around Forrest City, take the 10 mile drive and eat at Mike's, you won't be disappointed.

“Exceptional”
Reviewed December 3, 2013

It never ceases to amaze my wife and me as we travel around the country since retiring, that great food can be found anyplace, even where we might least expect it. Such was the case at Mike's, which was recommended by the motel we were staying at in Forest City. The motel manager assured us that it was the best place in the county and well worth the drive. Much to our surprise, she was right. Great food, a varied menu, friendly service and reasonable prices out in the middle of no where, miles from any significant population center. Who'd a thunk it? Now we are fans and will definitely return the next time we are passing through Arkansas.

“Perfection”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

While on a road trip from New Jersey to Texas, we spent the night in a Hampton inn a few miles from mikes. The young lady at the hotel recommended Mikes and it did not disappoint! Coming from the NY/NJ area where some of the best steak houses and restaurants are located we were completely caught off guard by the quality of food and friendly service. No only was out steak cooked to perfection but the price was right as well. The atmosphere is simple and charming, where everyone knows each other from the neighborhood. And get this the owner himself walks around greeting the customers! A+++ and don't pass up on dessert!

“Great Family Restaurant!”
Reviewed August 3, 2013

We decided to give Mike's a try on the enthusiastic recommendation of the girls at the Registration Desk at our motel during a recent stay in Forrest City. The service was prompt and friendly and the food was delicious. Our party of 5 ordered steak, catfish and the Club Salad. Everyone enjoyed their food. I had the Catfish and it was fabulous! Fried to perfection with good cole slaw and great hush puppies. Mike's will be at the top of our list on our travels between Texas and Indiana!
