Glad we stopped at this little diner. Friendly staff willing to make whatever we wanted even if it wasn’t on the menu! (We ordered off the menu.) Fast service! Bottomless coffee. Sadly, Never made it back for dogs:(

Mike's consistently makes great hot dogs "all the way" and fries. It's also a fun visit to the diners of old where the bar stools swivel, the French fry mascot stands by the door, and burgers are flipped in front of you. 😃

Mike's has the best meat sauce in the area - you can't beat their hot dogs with the works. Then add an order of their home fries and you have a great lunch or dinner!!

Tasty and fast grill food. Hot dogs and Rings were good. Parking can be tight. Also, super busy at dinner hours. Friendly staff.

Visited Union college and had breakfast at Mikes. DELICIOUS. Best breakfast we've had- cannot say a bad word. Waitress was excellent! We were visiting from Massachusetts and felt welcome/left full. When visiting Schenectady- mikes is a MUST.
