Third Location of Mikey's Burgers and Fries Coming to Hartland

The local chain restaurant has plans to have their third location open in Hartland by summer.

The locally owned and operated two-restaurant chain of Mikey’s Burgers and Fries, with locations in Howell and Brighton, will soon be opening a third location in Hartland.

Construction for the third location has already begun in the Waldenwoods Shopping Center and the owner’s say although the location will be smaller than the Brighton restaurant, they will be able to add seating for 35 customers.

Moving into the former Vietnamese Café location, co-owner Mike Donn says they hope to be open by summer. 

Longtime friends and Howell natives, Big Mike and Little Mike – as they are known around town- opened the original Howell location three years ago and expanded into Brighton more than a year ago. 

Growing up in the area, Donn said that expanding into the neighboring communities was a natural choice.

“Mike and are both local, we live in Howell and our kids go to school there,” he said. “It was just the next step.”

The local burger place prides itself on custom-ordered burgers made just the way you like it and hand cut French fries.

With the Mikey Burger as the most popular menu item, Donn says the restaurants original recipe comes for the two Mike’s years of experience.

“(Big) Mike grew up with it and I spent years working in a national chain, so between the two of us we knew we could do it better,” he said.

And yet, this location sits empty with a "for lease" sign still in the window. There has been zero construction in this location.

Hi Bj- just to let you know a few weeks ago I did reach out to the owners asking for an update, but I am still waiting for a response. Hoping to hear something positive soon!
