Soul food is best consumed in tiny places that offer true home cooking. Big Mike's, despite its large name, is just such a place, and if you're looking for healthy, low-fat, or reduced-fat options, you should probably just keep walking. The specialty here is crisp and moist fried chicken accompanied by three sides (okra and mashed potatoes are topnotch) and cornbread, which has a denseness to it that's most welcoming. Yes, the house iced tea is the type of sweet that creates cavities on the spot. The interior design is fairly basic (a few posters and such), so sit, if you can, at one of the outdoor tables to enjoy the weather. A range of desserts are also available, with the peach cobbler receiving top honors.
