I'm a big Milo's fan. Every time I come to Birmingham I get their burgers. But this experience was disappointing. Their seasoned fries are also a signature dish and these tasted as though they had been too long under the heat lamp. The burgers themselves were still delicious.

One of the dirtiest places to eat I have been in a long time. I'm not sure why people rave about this place. Hamburgers are overpriced and Popeyes has better chicken tenders. Go to the McDonalds next door.

We are here tonight and it seriously wasn't very good. It was our first time eating here. The chicken strips not good and I wasn't eating them nor my 4 year old. My husband said you must not like those since your not eating them. He tried one and said they tasted like Convenience store chicken strips. The fries were... More

The service was so so, there was quite a bit of delay, but in fairness the restaurant was pretty crowded at the time I visited. The food is moderately priced, the burgers were fresh, the fries were just ok but nothing special. There are similar and possibly better options available in the area for this type of food, although the... More

Drive thru, as I have been inside and it felt a little grimy. Food was excellent and service was good but drive thru to enjoy the visit.

Mother always said if you can't say something nice don't say anything, well it's a clean resturant and the staff were friendly, Mother can rest in piece.This review is for the Tuscaloosa location, I won't be visiting here or any of their locations again. I don't care for many fast food chains, we were told Milo's had the best burgers... More

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.
