Mike and C’s is a local staple for anyone craving delicious homemade food. During the pandemic, they adapted by doing curbside and takeout until they eventually returned to limited seating.

Mike and C’s, along with their new location in Senoia, Yesterdays, is known by many in Fayette County as a place to get dinner after a game or breakfast on the weekends. Throughout the pandemic, they faced many challenges of their own. 

Located in Wilshire Pavilion, Mike and C’s has been a local favorite since it first came to the area. Mike and C’s specializes in “Game Day food,” like wings and burgers. They also always have different sporting events on their multitude of TVs to help create a better environment for their customers.  

“Working during Covid was kind of weird, but it was my first job and I started right before it all happened,” junior Olivia Ferris said. “Some of the regulars started leaving better tips for the servers. The people there are really nice, and everyone just treats you like their brother or sister.”

During the height of COVID-19, employees wore masks and increased the amount of times they wiped down tables. Although these changes were necessary, they posed many challenges due to the size of the restaurant. 

Mike and C’s adapted to the new “normal,” by going to a full take-out and curbside business, until April 28, 2020, when they introduced limited seating. 

Despite the challenges brought about by the pandemic, they still managed to open a second restaurant this fall, Yesterdays, in downtown Senoia.  

Mike and C’s stayed open during the pandemic, mainly due to local love, including a reverse spirit night by Oak Grove Elementary. Instead of the restaurant raising profits for the school, the school raised money for the restaurant. 

“We seriously have the most amazing community and customers, ” Mike and C’s said on their Facebook in response to the spirit night. 

Mike and C’s is a truly local business that survived through the pandemic because of the love and support of the community.
