Star Quarterback Also Ate at Local Eatery

Updated: Jul 7, 2020

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.
