“Pickens best resto, for what that's worth”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2014

C'mon folks, lighten up! We had a good meal at Michael's after visiting the famous Flea Market. The service was genuinely friendly, the food was genuinely average, and the price was just right. Our young waitress was careful with our orders (one of us is a vegetarian), and was very attentive without being smarmy. If you want Cordon Bleu, go to Paris (or better, Copenhagen). Be thankful that Pickens has a decent spot to eat!

“Not impressed”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2014 via mobile

The service was great. The food was tasteless . We had the chicken fried steak, and it come right out of the box. As well as a green beans coming right out of the can no seasoning.

I've been to Michaels with some co workers on several occasions. One of my favorite cafés! Everything is always delicious and friendly staff.

“barely mediocre”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2013

Went there for lunch. First and last time. Food was pretty poor. Hamburger was overcooked and tasteless, industrial grade. Baked potato was not baked. Wife's sandwich was mediocre.
Not many choices around here, this one is off our list.

“Good little place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2013

Good environment, good food, nice people. Just a quiet little polace locals seems to enjoy. Not upscale at all. Nice but not pretentious.
