Great Lunch ! Blue plate special is now $10.49 but well worth it. I wanted the fried chicken but went with the baked chicken instead. You get 1 meat and 3 sides with the blue plate special. Everything was great. You can't go wrong at Big Mikes !!!

I like Big Mikes mainly because of the staff being so warm and inviting and just fun to be around. Thanks, folks. Now, the corn bread is moist and tasty, the chopped steak big and full of flavor, the gravy good, the sides varied and tasty. But how about a few new "meats": meatloaf, baked chicken, baked or broiled fish.... More

Although the restaurant is small, my first visit to Big Mike's provided me with a huge meal. The senior Blue Plate special includes a meat, two sides, cornbread and a beverage. There are no bad choices with the special. If you are extra hungry, get the regular Blue Plate, with even more food. By the time we were leaving on... More

This is a cash only place. Both the fried and grilled pork chops were delicious. The fried chicken was sadly disappointing in both size and taste. The collard green was excellent. The Blue Plate Special is a good value (little less than $10) as you get a choice of meat, 3 sides, cornbread and tea.

Everything was great! We got the Blue plate special with chicken, porkchops, collards, mashed potatoes and mac and cheese. Everything was cooked perfectly and tasted amazing. Our server Isla was very sweet and friendly. We will definitely be back!

For the price ($9,49) you get a blue plate special which includes one meat, 3 sides, cornbread and sweet tea. It is a good deal for the price and the quality of the food. Don't pay attention to the look of the restaurant because it is simple and have to say not very well kept, especially, bathrooms. Our server (Treniece)... More

This family owed and family run restaurant is the best home cooking in Myrtle Beach. The fried chicken (or fried pork chops) is second to none. Collard greens, macaroni & cheese, field peas, beans, etc. And if fried isn't what you are looking for the ribs and chicken bog are still worth the visit.

Everything is wonderful. Been twice in one week and might go again within seven days. Had the chicken, pork chops, collards, yams, cabbage, and field peas.

We normally eat here when we vacation in myrtle beach each year. We always get the pork chops and they are so good. This time the Mac and cheese was a little dried out.The collards were good. Others in the group had pork chops but different vegetables. The rice and gravy was good and the field peas also. We substituted... More

A small old fashioned home cooking establishment. They have a menu but is seems everyone orders one of the blue plate specials. It is a choice of meat, three sides with corn bread for less than ten dollars. The fried chicken was not overly breaded and had good flavor. The collard greens, cabbage and yams were just like you would... More
