“Great home cooked southern food, but....”
Reviewed June 18, 2014

Everyone who reviewed before me is right about the roaches. I hope they get this fixed soon, because the food is delicious. I finally met the man that can beat my own fried chicken. It would be a shame to have the bug problem cause Big Mike's to lose business. It is summertime, it is the beach, you will have bugs, but you have to stay on top of them before they end up on top of the peach cobbler !!

“Horrible experience”
Reviewed June 17, 2014

My wife & I enjoy going to the local Resturants when we're vacationing. Today we saw poor service, and an unclean restaurant first hand. When we first walked into Big Mikes Soul food, after sitting ourselves down finally a waitress came and took our order. The wait for our food was uunusually long, so long that our food wasn't even hot. While we we're eating our food a roach was observed crawling up the wall..... then another. Well now our appetite is gone, and so are we. Big Mike I wish you the best, but if you want to improve your business have a team meeting with your employees, remind the of the importance of not only friendly service, but also the importance of "customer service". Also if you have more than 2 legs and two arms and enjoy crawing up walls... you're not invited, they will kill your business.

“Very disappointed”
Reviewed June 17, 2014

We where excited about eating at Big Mikes on June 17, 2014 . It was rated on the 10 ten restaurants in Myrtle Beach. When we came in the ladies behind the counter did speak . But they didn't come to set us we found a table in the back. Then my husband went to ask will someone come over or do we need to go to counter to order. The waiter came out after about five min's she was nice but her service was slow. We ordered out food and we could see it sitting in the window our waiter started pulling some of the order. I guess it was not right because she was sending it back. So when my plate came it was warm not hot and fresh. I didn't like my cabbage and asked for cole slow that was not good either. Then my niece seen a roach crawling up the wall. That's when I got mad then we seen another roach. I lost my appetite. Then when my husband spoke to Big Mike about the roach problem he said " O I know I have someone working on it" . We'll you work on it and watch your customers never come back . That's just wrong . Do better

“We keep going back. So happy we live here. Food is amazing.”
Reviewed June 17, 2014

You can not beat this place if you want home cooked soul food at an amazing price.

We both had the blue plate special, was like $8......

Both had fried chicken, drink, corn bread, and you pick three sides, had dirty rice, mac n cheese, and greens.....

So much amazing food all home made all on one plate with a drink, two dine for under $20 how can you not try this place......

By far the best down south. home cookin, soul food, in Myrtle Beach
