Big Mike's Philly Steaks
Posted by Jay on 05/31/2015
I've been to the one right by Hermosa Pier enough to say: The lady at the counter is supernice and very quick, always smiling - but the cooks are horrible. They rather flirt with their friends sitting at the bar instead of preparing food. They talk and talk - and don't cook. Happened 5 times in a row now that we had to wait more than 20 minutes for or food. Not because it takes time to prepare it but because the cook talked to their friends for 10 minutes...

Now that mike's got 3 locations something had to give. The one in Torrance on 190th needs a lot of work. New cooks for sure! I'm a fan of the original at Hermosa pier and the new one on 4th street is awesome (has one of the original cooks there) but I'll never go to the one off 190th ever again. I just picked up my usual Steak Combo and when I got home I unwrapped what they must call the "Skinny" version. The meat must have been painted on, the entire 18" long sandwich was only 1" high ...I mean WHOA! for $10.50 that's absolutely RIDICULOUS!! Common Big Mike, I love you man but 2 words "QUALITY CONTROL" Avoid the 190th location unless you've got deep pockets and are on a diet!

I know it's good to be honest, but dang people! I had to chime in, since a lot of these reviews are BEYOND negative! It's one thing to say you didn't like your experience, but another to BOYCOTT the place! I live next door and frequent this place weekly. I love it! Their super fast, super friendly and always stay amazingly consistant with me! (Even at 2am dealing with hungry drunks!) If you want a wimpy, cheap sandwhich, go to Subway or stay your ass at home! Recession hit everyone- deal with it! Big Mike's is AWESOME!!

Just went into Big Mike's and got one of the worst Cheese Steaks I have ever had. We're not just talking gristle and fat but jaw locking teeth chipping pieces of I don't know what. I have been going to Big Mike's in Hermosa for over 10 years and I've met Mike several times, but sorry buddy I won't be spreading the word for you any longer. Too many bad sandwiches lately, and at $10 a pop I expect much more.
