We arrived during Saturday night rush hour and were given the option for “counter service” rather than restaurant or bar service. It worked well for us since we were there for the food and did not mind simple tables and picking up our BBQ Brisket...More

We had four adults and one child. Mike's has a great variety of BBQ and all different dishes were good. The best value was a quarter pound of hamburger with a drink and a side for children at $6.99.
