Miller's

If great fried chicken is your bag, this is your place. Retro ambiance, friendly staff. The sides, however, leave much to be desired. Canned green beans, from-the-box mac n' cheese. Again, go for the chicken, and the history.

After reading the reviews on trip advisor we decided to stop at Miller's chicken while in Athens, Ohio. The chicken was very good but my husband didn't care for his chicken salad sandwich. It was very runny and disappointing. Neither one of us were impressed with the sides, they were just okay. The staff was very friendly, however.

Miller's Chicken has been around for almost 60 years. I ate there as a child, and recently took my husband there. His response - "We've been coming to Athens for over 30 years, why is this the first time I am eating this chicken?" He loves fried chicken. It's a small restaurant, great for carry-out and does not have long... More

Was a little disappointed in the place. Everything served in/on disposable ware. Chicken was good, but not the best I have eaten. I guess I was expecting a quaint restaurant where there were servers. Instead you order at the counter, grab your plastic silverware and have a seat. They do bring the meal to the table when it is ready.... More

You just can't beat a place that gets better. Anytime I'm in athens, I have to make a stop for the chicken. And don't forget the mashed potatoes. .

I've eaten at Miller's since I was in high school a long time ago. Not fancy, but consistently good. The sides are refrigerated, even baked beans which it's kind of odd to eat cold. But the chicken is great and the service is very friendly.

This place is just a step up from being a whole in the wall, but don't let that fool you. They have the best chicken in town. I personally don't know anyone who would argue with that statement. They also have the best macaroni salad I have ever had in my life. I have never cared for anything made with... More

Great little restaurant that has been around for a long time.. They serve all the parts including my personal favorite (livers). Parking can be difficult around the lunch rush hour.

I asked where can I get some good chicken and everyone in this town said millers. After eating there I see why they say its some good o'home cooked chicken. Everything from gizzards to full chicken dinners. Also I seen fish on menu. Will stop back next time in town for sure.

It's more than just chicken, mind you, and once inside you'll see that it's not only O.U. students that frequent the place but also teens, couples and families. The service is intimate and friendly, and combined with the food makes you feel like you're visiting your auntie who cooks well. I would always order specialized stuff not on the menu... More
