We stumbled upon Big Mike's and were happy we did! Delicious fried chicken and pork chops, good Mac & cheese, friendly and fast service. Stop by when you're in Myrtle Beach!

All I have to say is it is worth the wait. The fried chicken and mashed potatoes with gray was awesome. No reservations and it is a first come first serve.

This could possibly be the best food I have ever eaten. My husband and I were very impressed with Big Mike's, and his staff is on point! You can't go to Myrtle Beach without eating here.

Loved the fired bologna sandwich. Very home-style cooking. A great place to be after a long day at the beach; especially if you've got kids! No mess, no fuss with plastic silverware and styrofoam plates/cups. Loved the service and atmosphere. Only downside: limited parking!

A chicken bog is a rice, chicken and sausage dish local to South Carolina. The prices are great along with the food, however, it is not buffet.
