My husband had the shrimp and grits, collards, mac-n-cheese, cornbread. I had turkey wings, double collards and cornbread which came with a drink. All tasted fresh and cooked great. Out of diet soda so I had to get regular which was just too much sugar for me personally. Will go back and try something else next time because worth another... More

Really enjoyed the fried chicken here. It had a light crispy coating and was fried to order. Corn bread & Mac & cheese were decent. Mashed potatoes were instant- thank goodness for the gravy...which was excellent. Husband said the gumbo was tasty too. Service was attentive & courteous.

Went a little late at night. Didn't know they closed early for winter hours but they allowed us in. Ordered their daily blue plate special. Husband and I both got the fried chicken with green beans, mashed potatoes, cabbage, and cornbread. So good!!! Be sure to bring an appetite! Will visit again when back in town.

I cannot say enough about this place!Staff is insanely nice and the food is (not gonna lie) better than my home cooking.Not for those on a diet because once you taste the first bite of food,you wont be able to stop! My daughyer got serenaded for her birthday and they turned the tvs to cartoons for her!

While on vacation we were craving some really good food so we stumbled across Big Mike's on a online search, wasn't exactly seasoned the way I was hoping. The soul food I am used to usually makes you want to smack someone's mama but this was alright. Portion is definitely good here, we got the special that was like either... More

Great Lunch ! Blue plate special is now $10.49 but well worth it. I wanted the fried chicken but went with the baked chicken instead. You get 1 meat and 3 sides with the blue plate special. Everything was great. You can't go wrong at Big Mikes !!!

I like Big Mikes mainly because of the staff being so warm and inviting and just fun to be around. Thanks, folks. Now, the corn bread is moist and tasty, the chopped steak big and full of flavor, the gravy good, the sides varied and tasty. But how about a few new "meats": meatloaf, baked chicken, baked or broiled fish.... More

Although the restaurant is small, my first visit to Big Mike's provided me with a huge meal. The senior Blue Plate special includes a meat, two sides, cornbread and a beverage. There are no bad choices with the special. If you are extra hungry, get the regular Blue Plate, with even more food. By the time we were leaving on... More

This is a cash only place. Both the fried and grilled pork chops were delicious. The fried chicken was sadly disappointing in both size and taste. The collard green was excellent. The Blue Plate Special is a good value (little less than $10) as you get a choice of meat, 3 sides, cornbread and tea.

Everything was great! We got the Blue plate special with chicken, porkchops, collards, mashed potatoes and mac and cheese. Everything was cooked perfectly and tasted amazing. Our server Isla was very sweet and friendly. We will definitely be back!
