Fat Mikes at the Market is a new local joint in Spring, Texas. It has that sorta vibe that only a Texan knows when you are walking in. Maybe it’s the tree outside holding up the roof, or the beautiful all wood bar on the inside. Maybe it’s the dim lighting or the tin siding on the walls that makes a Texan feel at home. The vibe is a little bit honky tonk and 100% Texas. Something deep down inside, just tells you this place is going to be good! Fat Mike’s serves Texas comfort cuisine. As we all know, everything is bigger in Texas and Fat Mikes is no exception. Plates here are Texas-sized portions of Chicken Fried Steak, BBQ, and one of the best burgers in town. The size of the chicken fried steak is already becoming legendary in this neck of the woods, and the burger really is exceptional. At Fat Mikes, they make their own patties and ground bacon into the meat for added flavor. What could be better then a burger stuffed with bacon! It’s a thick juicy burger served on a light fresh sweet bun, which soaks in perfectly all of the juices from the meat and served with homemade potato chips. Trust me, you will come back again for this burger! The BBQ here is also good with lean smoked brisket and excellent smoked sausage. While the meat dishes are excellent, you also will not go wrong with some of the other dishes on the menu. My wife had a shrimp salad sandwich which was made perfectly. We requested it on a po-boy roll instead of white bread and it was great, not to mention huge! Gumbo was the soup of the day, and it too was excellent. Not too thick, with a perfect amount of sausage. As with any self respecting Texas joint in Houston, St. Arnolds beer is served on tap and there is a full bar as well. Fat Mikes as a unique feature, will also a feature an outdoor farmers market in the spring and summer. Fresh food is a focus at Fat Mikes so get there early. Once they run out of something, that’s it for the day! This is a new place with affordable comforting food in an area starved for better restaurants. I think they are on the right track and hope to continue to visit Fat Mikes for years to come.
