“The Best hamburger place”
Reviewed August 10, 2012

I spent many years in the restaurant business, and Mike's is the best! Those who complain about the fries have never had real potato fries, and you get about 4 times the amount as any other place. The hamburgers and chili are consistant no matter when you get them. They are always cleaning. Compared to any other place, they rank high above them all.

“If you like garlic.”
Reviewed August 2, 2012

This place is hard to park at but has had the best garlic fries for years. They are not always open when you want them but if you catch them open the best lunch bag full of snack awaits you.

“Great food!”
Reviewed April 17, 2012

Who DOESN'T love their garlic fries? Warning, if you don't want your vehicle to smell like garlic eat the food before you leave or keep the bag sealed tightly until you get to wherever you are going to eat!

“Resistance is futile - eat more garlic fries!”
Reviewed December 20, 2011

Well, you have to indulge sometimes - why not when in Eureka? Mike´s garlic fries has been around a LONG time - and YES, it is a tacky little "hole in the wall" - but the garlic fries and chocolate malts are worth the time it´ll take you to burn off those pesky calories. Have everyone try some, because the garlic´s strong and so will your breath be!
Note the classic Rebublican propoganda on the wall, too. Boldly displaying calendars with George Bush and even Sarah Palin on them - these folks leave no doubt whose team they are rooting for! Yikes! Eat and be merry!
