My wife and I tried out a new BBQ joint on Galvin Road in Bellevue over the weekend that wasn't on Brad's list above -- Big Mike's, which apparently used to be a food truck built into an old school bus, but is now a brick-and-mortar restaurant. Nothing earth shattering, but it was competent BBQ. Better than some places I've been in Omaha, worse than others. Side dishes were underwhelming with the exception of the corn bread "waffle", which is a fun idea (instead of a muffin or bread, it's 1/4 of a belgian waffle made from corn bread). I couldn't believe the price though. Under $15 for two sandwiches, two sides apiece and two drinks. That's probably what will get me back in the door.

Cool, I think I saw the (CLOSED) next to a couple of the google search results, but that must have been the food truck.

Can't beat $15 for BBQ!
