Mike’s Italian Grill in Kokomo, Indiana offers a variety of food, but I believe they are best known for their pizza. Mike’s seems to do an excellent job of going above and beyond with the little things to ensure you have a pleasureable dining experience. A couple of these things that stood out to me were that they bring you a glass of whatever soda you order as well as a pitcher to make sure your beverage doesn’t run out (they do offer beer, but I’m guessing the same practice doesn’t apply for it), and they offer complimentary nacho cheese (which was delicious) with their pizza to dip the crust in. The staff at Mike’s was also very friendly, and the only slight negative was that the kitchen seemed to be a little slow. However, they have some televisions and a pleasant atmosphere if you aren’t in a hurry. It also seems as though you can get a lot of food for your money at Mike’s Italian Grill.
I started my meal at Mike’s Italian Grill with a full order of their cheese bread. It was very good, and, if you can’t tell from the picture above, a half order is likely plenty for an appetizer. I then ordered a sausage and pepperoni pizza on their pan crust. Mike’s also makes hand tossed and crispy thin crusts, but pan was the recommendation of my waitress. They make their own dough at Mike’s, and I especially liked the crumbly sausage that comes on their pizza. The pan crust was pretty thick and airy if you like that, but I might prefer to try a different crust next time in order to be able to better taste more of the other aspects of their pizza. Overall, I greatly enjoyed my experience at Mike’s Italian Grill and recommend it to anyone in Kokomo.
