First of all this is located in a sketchy part of town, not the worst but not the best either. The location itself is not bad but it is VERY close to a high crime area. So if you're a CWP holder.......... Anyway, I'm familiar with the area and I went here in the day time so I had no... More

I discovered Mike & Jeff's while on a Greenville BBQ culinary tour that took us for trip through the best BBQ in the area. While it was all good, without question these guys were the best stop of the night. Jeff is an artist with his smoker and if you are looking for a short vacation in pulled pork paradise... More

Well, it has to be compared to the other place in town. It is much smaller-maybe seats twenty or so with some stools in the front. Apparently a lot of ‘take outs.’ The Barbeque is Hickory smoked and has more smoke than the other place. The ribs tend to be larger, and the quantity, in general, is higher. The sweet... More

Excellent good, friendly people, it is great. The place is homely and small, but you go there for the people and food. Even the dog gets a treat, $1 for a bag of bones.

Unlike the many restaurants that can be walked to from Main Street, this one will require a 10 minute car ride and GPS to reach. Surrounding area isn't that nice and neither is their building. Here you pay for the food, not the ambience, making it more affordable than those downtown restaurants. Not only can you taste the smokiness in... More

Staff is down home friendly. Food was quick to serve. Ribs, chicken and pulled pork were great as well as the sauces from mild, mustard to HOT. I'll definitely be back to this place SOON!!!

My family loves going to this place. The people are so friendly all the time as are all the other customers who "eat in" in the small dining room. Carry. Out is brisk & there are dog bones for sale in the cooler near the front door(3 bones/$ 1.00). Big bones for the dog. Atmosphere is "old road dinner". A... More

I work at a BBQ restaurant in MI and was told about Mike & Jeff's Old School BBQ. I saved the information for a year till we headed to SC. The pulled pork melted in your mouth, pulled chicken, and St. Louis ribs fell off the bone. Our Wonderful Hostess gave us a takeout menu to take back to the... More

This nondescript casual place has very good barbecue. And it is reasonable and serves generous portions.
