With three thriving locations across the county, Michael’s has come a long way since its humble, on-a-shoestring beginnings in a P.G. strip mall back in 1986 (where the original remains), and its success can be charbroiled down to a simple motto: “If it ain’t good enough for Mama, it ain’t good enough for you.” With shrimp and chicken blackened to beautifully delicious, guacamole delivered by the heaping scoop, and wet, appetite-whetting burritos that wreak delicious havoc on the taste buds, locals are finding Michael’s better than good enough—they’re finding it often.
