Went for a bike ride in Athens,Ohio. Afterwards we went over to West State Street to Miller's Chicken to grab a bite to eat. It is not in main stream Athens but I would suggest stopping in for a bite if you are in the vicinity. You can get chicken several made ways and fish also with tasty sides. It... 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.

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
