It's a BBQ joint in Rigby, Idaho and it's gaining worldwide attention thanks to Guy Fieri's hit show "Diners Drive-Ins and Dives."

Lil Mike's has only been open for three years, but getting a little visit from Food Network's Guy Fieri has definitely helped drum up business.

Guy first visited Lil Mike's last year and the episode originally aired in November, but if you missed it the episode will re-air on April 19th. (That's my birthday by the way ;))

Some of the most popular menu items include...

  • brisket
  • ribs
  • pork
  • turkey
  • corn salad
  • sausage
  • sandwiches
  • baked potatoes
  • nachos

According to, the restaurant actually started in Bakersfield, California but co-owner Julie Shults decided to bring it to Rigby after visiting family in town and feeling like Rigby didn't have enough good food options. They started in a small trailer set up in front of a gun shop and slowly but surely grew to open a second restaurant in West Yellowstone with goals of setting up shop in Bozeman, Montana or Boise!

With the "Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives" exposure, people from all over the world have stopped by to try the BBQ at Lil Mike's. Be sure to set your DVR or tune in to the April 19th episode.
