“Lacked Charm But Food & Service Was Good”
Reviewed December 16, 2013

Located in a strip mall, Mike's isn't going to win any awards for architectural design but the BBQ was good as was the service. Order your food at one end of the counter and pick it up at the other. I had a pulled pork sandwich with fries (one of their top sellers) and my wife had a Mesquite grilled beef bone with cole slaw. We both enjoyed our entrees and the sides. Tried both BBQ sauces - really liked the Mesquite (sweet) sauce but the Hickory (spicy), not so much. Adjoining sports bar looked to be a popular spot with the locals.

“Great BBQ and sports bar”
Reviewed December 3, 2013

Sort of a strange location (strip mall) for a BBQ place but definitely worth it. Meals are on the pricy side but you won't be disappointed. They have an excellent sports bar with lots of TVs and friendly staff. Great place to meet with friends and enjoy some great BBQ and cold beer.

“Mom's beans!!”
Reviewed December 2, 2013 via mobile

The BBQ itself is pretty good, but I LOVE mom's beans. They're so flavorful but not overly salty like some beans can be. The beer selection is pretty awesome as well.
