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!

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!

If you are looking for fried chicken then Miller's Chicken is a must! It's hidden on the west side but still close to uptown.
