If you're craving southern soul food, you'll want to check out our February Leading Business of the month sponsored by South State Bank - it's Big Mike's Soul Food
The restaurant located at 504 16th Ave. N. in Myrtle Beach is owned and operated by Mike Chestnut and his wife Maxine. Mike was influenced by his mother, who seemed to work like magic in the kitchen. He started working in the restaurant industry in Myrtle Beach at age 12. He always wanted to have a place where people could enjoy a good meal like it was made at his mama's house. At Big Mike's the promise is a good meal at a fair price. A meal that feeds your soul and your belly.
The menu includes fried chicken, fried pork chops, fried fish, collard greens and cornbread and so much more. Big Mike's is open for lunch and dinner and offers catering, too.
About Leading Business of the Month
Every month, Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce announces a Leading Business of the Month. This special promotion, sponsored by South State Bank, recognizes a company that has been a member of Myrtle Beach Area Chamber for a minimum of five years. The business is randomly selected. The company displays a banner at their place of business for one month recognizing them as the Leading Business of the Month. The honor was first awarded in September 2015.
Sponsorship provides our investors the opportunity for recognition and publicity. For some events, sponsorship will also include tickets to the event, the opportunity to speak to attendees or to distribute promotional items.
