Staff was nice, friendly & attentive. Drive In, so order inside & take out, no seating available. Had long hot dog with cheese, husband had hamburger, son cheese garlic fries & shared 1/2 order of garlic fries. Hot dog was good, average but long! Hamburg was good & juicy like a Sonic burger. Fries were good/ ok had garlic seasoning,... More

Gave it 4 rating mostly for the garlic fries. A local hole in the wall with burgers, dogs, fries and malts. Take out only. Burgers were okay but fries were excellent. Just put the empty bag outside or you will smell like garlic for days.

My husband and I went here for the first time and we will be back. We both got cheese burgers no chili, and regular fries. Nothing fancy just good old fashioned burgers and fries.

No seating. Just grab and go. Garlic fries must be good both the locals in front of me ordered them. And the person picking up their order had them also. All hamburgers and hot dogs come with chili on them. I chose not to have them on ours, we were eating in the truck it would have been to messy.... More

Mike's is definitely a change to the normal fast food places. The chili burgers and garlic fries are very delicious, and are each what this restaurant is famous for. I definitely recommend it to anyone in Eureka.

We always stop at Mike's when we are in Eureka. One of those funky "hole-in-wall" places that stand the test of time! No place to sit but no problem - when the weather is nice we usually just tailgate it ;-) The garlic fries are addicting - but the hamburgers are delicious as well. Super fresh with all the toppings!... More

Mikes Drive Up has been a fixture in Eureka for more than 60 years. Great Burgers and the best garlic fries anywhere.

This little hole in the wall drive-up was awesome. The quick food they cooked up for us was awesome. Their hamburger with their chili on it was great. We stopped in and were very happy we did. The garlic fries they serve are also very tasty. The place has been around for a long time.

i haven't been "home" in 12 years and Mikes was on the must have list. Sure it's not heart healthy skinny people food but a good comfort food experience. All I was thinking about was those garlic fries and I was not disappointed !!!
