BIG MIKES BURGER in bellflower . . .

nrique | Apr 23, 200809:34 PM

So it was last Sunday when I got the chance to head down and try this place. I found this joint from a couple of work friends who described this burger WORD FOR WORD.

So here it is the BIG MIKE BURGER.

Starts with a half pound patty of fresh ground beef.
One half Louisiana hot link.
Cheese, pickles, onions and tomato's.
Mustard and Mayo standard.

BIG MIKE is a gracious fellow and will ask if you don't want anything specific on it. You can substitute bacon for the Hot Link, but WHY WOULD YOU DO THAT?

The low down, I got my burger and the meat is REAL GOOD, cooked just right, the Hot link was outstanding. Plain and simple this is THE BEST BURGER I HAVE HAD IN A LONG TIME. It took a little over 15 minutes to prepare the meal, yeah it's not fast food and when you bite into it you will be thankful.

He has a full menu including Bar-b-cue ribs and Tri tip cooked on an outdoor grill !

His burgers start at the LITTLE MIKE level I believe its a quarter pound patty then goes to the BIG MIKE burger ( half pound patty) and ends at the DOUBLE BIG MIKE burger (TWO half pound patties with one WHOLE hot link).

If you are a PROFESSIONAL eater then I would try the DOUBLE BIG MIKE. But if any of the standard burgers leaves you happy I recommend you start with the LITTLE MIKE.


17845 Clark Ave.
Bellflower CA.

(562) 866 - 6967

On the counter he has business cards that have a special offer on them, buy two BIG MIKES and get 2 XL drinks free. A Good Deal !
