The people are friendly, the portions are huge, the food typical. A large crispy-on-the-edges pancake was particularly good. And I appreciate the extra maple syrup on the table. I thought ugly the potatoes were boring, even with the extra onions and peppers. Also my husbands omelet looked over cooked. I bet the Greek specialties are good and may try those... More

Every visit to Mils is fantastic. Whether it is your first visit or your 1000th. The Staff is great and everyone is welcome. You can't go wrong with any item you choose, from Breakfast, Lunch or Dinner. All menu items served all day. The soups, that are made fresh, every morning by the owner Louie are really good and after... More

Mil's serves the best breakfasts. The french toast is excellently seasoned and cooked to perfection. There is a breakfast special list that includes a lot of favorites. The eggs are always cooked to they way they were ordered (never over/underdone), the country potatoes simply scrumptious and the bacon is the best I have eaten in a long time. To top... More

Late breakfast and early lunch for a colleague and I after a meeting. Really enjoyed the patty melt. Breakfast was huge. Friendly staff. Bathroom was a little sketchy.

Met my family there for breakfast this morning. I had the French Toast Special with 2 eggs. & bacon. Good stuff! My sister had the scramble that looked bigger than my brothers omelet. Brother- in-law had pancakes. Everyone said what they had was good. Staff kept the coffee, water & soda coming. We'll be back.

We found this place via Google maps. The food was good. The prices were right. The owners worked very hard to make sure we were happy. I would go here again.

You can get all the typical diner food here, but it's a shame to ignore the Greek options. We went on Wednesday and asked to see the Greek specials. I had the souvlaki combo and my spouse had the shrimp version. There were three different meat portions on my plate, and each was delicious. Chicken, lamb, and beef were all... More
