Love the BBQ here at Michnas. It is by far the best Brisket and chicken in the area. They also have a lunch buffet that gives you endless options. Don't miss out if you are a BBQ fan.

We did not like anything about this place. The BBQ was terrible. The inside as well as the outside was old and dirty looking. I will never be back to this place...AWFUL....

Ribs, corn, sausage, and dumplings are ok. Place looks very interesting. But buffet looked scary (sorta nasty), cramped near register, chicken had good smoked flavor...but unfortunately was very dry. Chicken in dumplings tasted strange. Homemade bread was ok, but saw no cornbread even though there...More

First time in Michna's and I was welcomed and treated like a regular! The food was good and well priced. The atmosphere was an old fashioned place with nostalgic charm with pictures of John Wayne and Clint Eastwood on the walls. My kind of place....More
