The food at Chow Wagon is just okay, nothing to write home about. The burgers are slightly overcooked, and the fries are very undercooked. The service is good, the prices are average, there is absolutely no atmosphere/frills.

I love love love Chow Wagon. Unfortunately, new owners have taken over and changed a lot of things. I've gone three times since they have been under new management, and every. single. time. they have gotten my order wrong. I love the food at chow...wagon, but I am growing tired of constantly having my hopes let down. I went today and ordered my go-to order. Jumbo cheeseburger with ketchup only, small hot fries special, milkshake. I listened as the gentleman read my order back precisely as I had said, only to be disappointed when I got back to work to eat. The burger was a small burger, not jumbo, and covered in everything. On top of that, the milkshake was supposed to be half priced (they do 1/2 priced milkshakes from 1-4pm) and they charged full price. I had specifically waited until after 1pm to go just for that reason. Their food is usually great, but the service has just really been letting me down. I hope they fix it, because Chow Wagon is truly a little piece of Milan's soul.More

My experience is under the former owners. They had great burgers, ice cream, a large menu to choose from, and it was fairly cheap. It has recently opened again under new ownership, so I cannot speak as to how it is now. To be continued...

The food is pretty good if you have plenty of time. This place is always crowded with only a few tables to serve. Even the drive through is always backed up. I suppose that means several people like this place, but for me it isn't...worth the wait.More

The place looks like a dump, but let the line of cars at the drive thru and the full parking lot be your guide. We were in town overnight for a visit to nearby Union University and we're looking for a quick bite. Well, it...wasn't quick because I think we sat in the drive thru for over 20 minutes, but it was worth it. All four of us got the jumbo cheeseburgers and we got 4 different sides: tots, onion rings, fries, and seasoned fries. My boys loved the burgers, and I did, too. Everyone agreed they were like what we would make at home. Seasoned fries won the taste test of the sides. Where else can you get 4 huge cheeseburgers and 4 sides for $20?! Great value! Would return.More

The wait is what gets you. We have waited for almost 30 min for food. It is worth the wait. They serve great food. I am a frequent visitor.

When I think of local hangout, I think of here. This place is always busy and always good. There is something about the food here that makes you want to come back.
