Star Quarterback Also Ate at Local Eatery

Of course, Big Mike’s BBQ Smokehouse has the goods when it comes to food.

But it also has been known to feed some well-known people, too.

This past March, local social media buzzed when the restaurant’s Facebook page posted a photo of Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott in the restaurant – a surprise to many locals who didn’t realize that Prescott was touring the Houma area at the time.

According to a Dallas Cowboys employee, Prescott, a Louisiana native, was in town on a fishing trip in Cocodrie – a spot he’s reportedly fished several times in his life.

When he got hungry, he stopped at Big Mike’s on a reference from someone who knew the area, and the rest is history.

In the social media post, Big Mike’s ribbed the quarterback (pun intended), talking about how he is a member of the Cowboys – an often-hated team in the football-crazed community.

The post got hundreds of shares and even more likes.

The Cowboys employee said Prescott enjoyed his meal.

That’s something Saints fans can agree with a Cowboy on.
