Millers chicken is an out of the way place to find. Place looks ran down but, don't let that make you from stopping there. The chicken is good and it's a hometown place. You can tell that when you walk in. The people are friendly and the food is made fresh and hot. It cost $6.95 for 5 pieces of... More

One of the many perks to living on the west side of Athens is Miller's. Not only do they make great chicken (and fish, ham, turkey, mashed potatoes, baked beans, cole slaw, pasta salad, macaroni salad,etc), but they are generous. One always leaves with more than what one expects. For instance, they'll decide that a chicken breast is too small,... More

If you like chicken (any part of one) fried to delicious, hot perfection, this is the place for you. Their cooked to order chicken is sublime. You'll definitely want to try their homemade side dishes, too. From fried cauliflower to baked barbecue beans and several types of salads along with mashed potatoes and gravy, there's a lot to choose from... More

I've had chicken in 8 different states ranging from the North to the Deep South, chains, independents and sometimes out of the kitchen of a road side trailer. Miller's has it nailed to perfection IMO. No crazy gimmicky batter textures or flavors, the chicken itself is tasty, moist and "clean" if that makes sense. The batter used leaves the skin... More

Miller's has been a must go to in Athens forever. Family owned and operated with great service and great food. Their fried chicken, chicken harts and livers are the best anywhere. Price are very reasonable.

Most towns have a local place like this, or at least they should! I enjoyed the chicken here very much. It was tasty and by looking at the crowd waiting to get their order, other people agreed. The only negative is that several dark meat pieces were undercooked. Not badly, please understand, but they could have stayed in the oil... More

Crispy finger licking good chicken is what draws people in, as well as the delicious side dishes, such as macaroni salad, mashed potatoes/gravy and fried mushrooms just to name a few. Friendly service and daily specials make this a great place for your next dinner..

We ordered legs and theighs and they weren't overly hot. We were there around 12 and so it was fairly busy; I think they prepare for the lunch rush by cooking chicken ahead of time. We also had the mac n cheese, onion rings and french fries. Mac n cheese was ok, onion rings and fries were hot and I... More

Don't be fooled by the building, great food inside. Their chicken is great. The meat still has a nice texture after cooking, not soft and mushy like places that use a pressure cooker/fryer. Also be sure and have a slice of pie.

We had heard about Miller's Chicken and decided to try it out. My husband is a chicken connoisseur and he loved it! The sides were great but we did not try the potato chunks we were told later they were a must try. Guess we'll have to go back!
