The reviews looked good, so we decided to try Michael's in Etowah, TN. The reviews were RIGHT! Great food, great variety, hearty portions, great service.... What else can I say? If you are in Etowah, this is the place to eat!

Michael's is unimposing but very presentable in its strip-mall setting and delivers some of the best barbecue of all types you'll ever encounter. Don't miss any of their offerings, chicken sandwiches (the best I've had anywhere) potato soup--potentially heart stopping but wonderful. Absolutely the best family oriented barbecue joint you could visit anywhere.

My wife and I ate here for dinner. I ordered the special, Baked Spaghetti and my wife ordered the pulled pork plate. The Spaghetti was not good at all. It was swimming in a pool of reddish water and had a glob of semi-melted cheese on top. It came with what looked like loaf bread toasted with some seasonings. The... More

Someone called this a "go to" spot when going through Etowah (EH-toe-wah) Tennessee, just south of Athens. I totally agree. It is a very pleasant restaurant and as you enter you see the big barbecue cooker going full force and smelling wonderfully. We chose fried catfish with fries and slaw. It was great and the portion so generous that we... More

Michael's provides the best dry-smoked barbecue of all types that I've ever experienced. Although it appears to be a humble, no frills place, their food is absolutley outstanding--no matter what you order! Why only one barbecue sauce at your table? Because it simply complements every single thing they serve. What a sweet find in little ol' Etowa Tennessee.

We have dined at this restaurant many times and I've yet to have any place in the area beat the quality of food, service, and pricing. This restaurant offers specials for around $7.00 that are better than you would cook at home. Add a drink and dessert and you've dined for under $12. With the exception of the pulled pork,... More

This is our go-to spot if we're passing thru Etowah. Highly recommend starting off with an order of their french fried mushrooms. They are delicious. Then after doing that I would recommend splitting something...have tried several items on the menu...but I've got to say that their grilled burgers are some of the best around...they remind you of what I call...

I was one in a group of 50 and the wait staff did an outstanding job in taking care of us. Not one did anyone in our group have to ask for a refill on their beverage. They were always one step ahead of us. All questions were answered and a Senior's Menu was offered as well as the regular... More

Have been there several times, usually on Thursday when they have their senior discount dinners. Food is delicious and reasonably-priced. Definitely a go to place.

We ate here after a train ride at the Tennessee Valley Railroad. Everyone in our party enjoyed the meal they ordered - shrimp stir fry, club sandwich, French onion soup w/baked potato. I had fried catfish w/coleslaw and baked potato. I thought the catfish and coleslaw were really good. I had to send the potato back because it wasn't hot... More
