My mother-in-law works at Ohio University, so when we come to Athens, Miller's is a must visit! Best chicken sandwich ever! I love the super chicken sandwich which is made in-house and great, real chicken. My husband just gets a fried chicken breast and my...More

Millers CAN be good but last few times we have ordered the chicken is in very small pieces. It's too crispy and dry. Makes me think of pigeons. On the other hand Kentucky Fried is best one I've ever eaten in.

Had heard about Miller's but never went so decided to give it a try. Nothing much in the way of ambiance (basic cafe) but their menu is simple and the food is delicious! Recommend the fried chicken legs and the homemade slaw.

I love little, locally owned restaurants that have weathered time. I really, really wanted to love Miller's Chicken, it has all the benchmarks in place: originality, age...However, I just can't get on board with instant mashed potatoes, thin and bland gravy, canned green beans cooked...More
