Reviewed yesterday NEW

I am not from around here. So, I think the good reviews are based on nostalgia. The hot dogs were terrible. Left a nasty aftertaste. The fries were medium rare soggy . Maybe I am spoiled by the great hot dogs found in Buffalo and Syracuse. Never again!

Highly recommend the hot dogs "all the way." They have been in business here for over 50 years for a reason--they are great!

Mike's has the best meat sauce in the area - you can't beat their hot dogs with the works. Then add an order of their home fries and you have a great lunch or dinner!!

Tasty and fast grill food. Hot dogs and Rings were good. Parking can be tight. Also, super busy at dinner hours. Friendly staff.

Visited Union college and had breakfast at Mikes. DELICIOUS. Best breakfast we've had- cannot say a bad word. Waitress was excellent! We were visiting from Massachusetts and felt welcome/left full. When visiting Schenectady- mikes is a MUST.

This place is a great diner. No frills. Just good food. Food is served on styrofoam plates, and you get to use plastic utensils. Long time customers get up from their stool, go behind the counter, and help themselves. Servers are running frantically, always greeting folks by name. Well priced. Will come again.

Just a great diner. Burgers, dogs, fries, etc are the best. Breakfast is available and also great for the price. On the edge of the Schenectady Historical Stockade district and downtown. Will be very convenient to the Casino, opening in Spring 2017. Side note but not necessary; I proposed to my wife in 2006 after dining here. Had nothing to... More

Very cheap ($) but good hotdogs. Not from the north I just don't get the hotdog world but I did try them out and the sauce, very good. I would stop by again next time I am in the area. Homey atmosphere with very nice people both in front and behind the counter. Give this place a try and keep... More
