Small Local Eatery

Miller's is small but pretty good. My favorite foods are the deep fried gizzards and hearts. My Mom loved the deep fried livers. The chicken is pretty good too.

This is an excellent place to take care of your fried food fix with some of the best fried Chicken in the area. It's not as greasy as say KFC. But for fried chicken it's a great little local family owned chicken place.

Old school classic. My first time there but my wife has been there many times before. One of the best fried chickens I've ever had. We ordered 30 pieces and it was hot and fresh packed in a nice aluminum pan wrapped in foil. Ready in 20 minutes. I bought a souvenir t-shirt to wear at home in south Louisiana.... More

These folks fry chicken and fish, especially haddock, wonderfully well. Everything is piping hot and delicious. The room is downscale restaurant Americana (real, not contrived), the sides and drinks are in a cooler case, and the eating is fine!

Athens native here. Miller's is overrated. Chicken prices are fine for what you get, but I make better chicken in frying pan. The slaw is downright AWFUL. Not made on premises and the #2 ingredient is HFCS. Eeewwww. That not real sugar too-sweet taste. Two glasses of water to wash it out and throw the rest away. Mac+Cheese ok, but... More

Friendly, not fancy. It's a throwback place. Completely down-to-earth. BEST fried chicken.! Was yummy in the early '80's and still never disappoints. First stop each trip to Athens.

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
