Has their own special sauce

Milo's has a sauce that is like no other's. It is messy however so be sure to have napkins. The charbroiled burgers are tasty and tender.

Love the burgers, fries, sauce and tea. I eat here regularly when I visit Birmingham. I have learned that it's an acquired taste and some of my out of town friends that I get to try it sometimes are not impressed. That being said, go try it for yourself and be the judge. If you aren't sure about the sauce... More

We ate the chicken with several different types of sauces. The chicken was hot and the sauces were awesome!! The service was great even though it was fast food with a line of customers. The line moved quickly and the service was great!!

My wife loves the hamburgers (and sauce) and their famous iced tea. I don't care for the hamburgers (not my style) and the tea is nothing special to me.

Dates of visits - 7/24/15 & 7/25/15. I come to Bessemer once a year for a local event and I always look forward to going to Milo's when I am here. The burgers are fantastic! The fries are fantastic! The milkshakes are fantastic! I could drink the hamburger sauce by the gallon! I wish they had a location in Atlanta.

Decided to try Milo's for an early lunch. Ordered the chicken sandwich combo. I don't particularly like the milo's sauce, but the sandwich was cooked really well. The chicken was very juicy, and the fries were hot and tasty, seasoned really well. The prices are similar to Chick-fil-A. But it was average. I would return.

I'm from out of town and decided to try something different than your normal fast food places. Come inside, it's clean and not busy, but no hamburgers. We have two 3 year olds on tow, so we order anyway. Have the fried chicken sandwich. Sandwich doesn't even cover the bottom of the bun. On mine or my wife's. Get grilled... More

Milo's is a chain restaurant but they make one of the best burgers I've had from a chain. The burgers are fresh and their sauce adds the right amount of taste and flavoring.
