Some of the best BBQ I've ever tasted. The turkey plate is my favorite. I just wish they had real silverware and plates

We've gone to Houma several times in the last two years. Big Mike's is a MUST for each trip! Great BBQ, and the sauces only make it better. The menu and cooking is predictably good with each visit, and seasonal selections are always an intriguing surprise. Relaxed atmosphere and the staff makes you feel like you're family!

Haven't found anything my family doesn't like yet. Definitely our go-to restaurant when I don't have time to cook!

I came to town on a Sunday which most restaurants are closed but I was told to try Mikes. I come from TN where BBQ is a mainstay but this was really good and the staff is very friendly and helpful. Before they served me they told me I'd be back; I'm only here for 3 days, I'll be back

I love the food here. Awesome BBQ with nice sized portions. The employees are always nice and the atmosphere is great. On busy days it can be a little intimidating on your first visit. My suggestion is to get a menu pick a table and ask the staff as many questions as you can think of before you get in... More

We understand the need for quality BBQ in southern Louisiana and have spent more than a year perfecting our sauce, which we know you will love.
