Reviewed March 11, 2013

The people were friendly and the shakes were good but the food was terrible, soggy, tasteless, and over priced

GREAT garlic fries! The place looks like a hole in the wall but the old fashioned burgers and fries are great!

“Mike's Salty Fries”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

Small greasy burgers with over salted garlic fries. Don't the owners know you can buy garlic powder instead of garlic salt? Then add the salt to taste.

“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.
