Because of its location in an old brick building, I call it industrial chicken. It's not for the calorie conscientious, but we are only in the area a few times a year visiting relatives. Miller's beats the Colonel hand down. The potato salad and cole slaw is great with the chicken.

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.

Always a stop when you're in Athens visiting...the best fried chicken in town. Friendly, clean, always the chicken, gizzards, wings, and fixings you remember. Get the Super Chicken sandwich, You won't be disappointed!

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 in water and tiny, overcooked pieces of chicken. If fried chicken is your business model... More

Ordered food from Millers for my daughters grad party from OU and I have to say, BEST chicken ever. We also ordered trays of Mac-n-cheese and coleslaw and everything was great. Not greasy and cooked to perfection. Next time we will try the perch!

Don't eat here if you have tastebuds. Ordered 3 piece chicken tenders and 1 lb perch. Tasteless on both counts crispy on outside mushy on inside bad frozen fish & chicken. I just can't believe after all the hype how bad it is. Even the honey mustard was some awful off brand. Did not eat the chicken my husband ate... More

Stopped for late lunch (about 3 pm!) and the place was still busy! They have great fried chicken, with or without bones. The seasoning is delicious. You can eat in or take out. They offer the traditional sides too. Our Chicken Connoisseurs loved it!

I had a breast and thigh, mashed potatoes, green beans, and a biscuit. The chicken was excellent, with extra crispy skin but moist and tender meat. The mashed potatoes and gravy were also excellent. The green beans and biscuit were good but not to the level of the chicken. All in all, the meal was very good, especially after a... More
