I was in San Pedro today and was drawn to a wonderful BBQ smell coming from a divey, hole-in-the-wall place called Big Mike's near the new Sav-On drug store on Gaffey. I was craving a burger and not really in the mood for ribs but decided to give it a try.
I am glad I did as the burger I tried was excellent. I had the "Big Mike" cheese burger combo with fries and Coke. The fries were nothing special, but the burger was enormous and delicious. A huge patty (looked like it was hand formed and definitely not frozen) topped with a hot link sausage, and lots of raw onion. The hot link gave it a nice spicy flavor and will definitely go back to check out the ribs. There was also greens, mac & cheese, yams, and baked beans on the menu
