Good cookin', good eatin' good livin' is what Original Mike's is all about. Once a magnificent Buick dealership, Original Mike's is now a classy,sassy, retro, and metropolitan restaurant. Boasting three big separate rooms and one huge patio for your dining and drinking pleasure, this restaurant is mammoth. The half-pound Angus California burger is the best burger in the OC. Shoot down to Original Mike's on Tuesday night to work off the back-to-work blues, enjoying Karaoke with DJ Rodney or dance the night away "Elvis" style on Wednesday with Orange County Lounge Legend Phil Shane. Original Mike's is all the rage for live music every night. The great service heightens your experience, as your visual senses take in the eclectic,but eye-pleasing decor-including and antique car showroom and a 1930's fire truck. There is nothing lost on this flavorful experience. Make your way to Downtown OC and see how this restaurant lives up to its motto and then some.
