Big Mike's has great BBQ. I spend a lot of time traveling the country and am always impressed that no one seems to match Big Mike's flavor and quality. If you are visiting Houma, make sure to stop at Big Mike's.

Our family loves Big Mike's the food is the best BBQ in south Louisiana. We have tried just about everything on the menu. But I think my favorite is the BBQ Shrimp. But you can't go wrong with the combo plate so you can try a little bit of everything.

This is THE place to get BBQ in Houma. The food is consistently great and the staff always friendly. Do be prepared to have trouble finding a good parking spot and having to wait in line for some time at peak times of day. They sometimes have bands playing as well.

I have not been able to find one thing better than the rest in this restaurant! I only know when I leave Big Mike's I don't need to "get something else to eat" because nothing will taste as good as what I just ate. A family style place with food worth eating.

I don't often eat at the same restaurant several times on 1 trip but this was an exception. Did a lunch here a dinner here and then picked up some take out to bring back to MA.

Big Mike's BBQ Smokehouse is Houma's only home-style BBQ destination. At Big Mike's BBQ Smokehouse we offer amazing brisket, smoked turkey, baby back ribs, and the best hamburger in Houma. 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.
