“Still a favorite 25 years later!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2012

I had the opportunity to go back to my alma mater, Va Tech, recently for a football game. The first restaurant I ate in when I arrived on campus in Fall 1986 was Mike's Grill. The burgers were great and the prices were very reasonable for a college student. And now 26 years later, the prices are still great and the burgers are still a treat. Nothing fancy - just a good quality of meat, a nice portion and good service. Enjoyed the fries as well. Ate dinner for less than $8 including tip.

There's nothing fancy about this place but it's a great spot for spending some time with friends or family. You seat yourself as a table becomes available and you go to the cash register to pay. Service is good.

“Don't know what the big deal is”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2012

We went to Mike's for a fast lunch lured by the promise of the best burger. Not really. The service was average and the food was too. The best burger I have had in a restaurant is at Zinburger in the southwestern US. It is a Fox concept restaurant. Sure wish they were national. Will not be revisiting Mike's.

“An old favorite”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2012

Mike's hasn't changed in years. The service is good, the food is priced reasonably. The food is good, location is great. I wish they had Coke products rather than Pepsi, though, and at the very least, that they brewed their own iced tea.
