Ordered the fried chicken. The chicken was very good. Understand Bill Miller's chicken is floured and fried, not spiced like Lucy's, Gus's or even Popeyes. Breast pieces were big and the wing had a good deal of white meat on it. The scary part was the women accepting the money was rude, AND using here fingernails to clean her fingernails.... More

Breakfast tacos are really good and worthy.. I wish there are more options for vegetarians. For me it's better to go in the morning.

Stopped in Bill Miller for a large peach cobbler as dessert. Got it home and spent the night trying to find the elusive peach. Never had bought "bread cobbler" before - never again.

Being Austin has lots of great BBQ, don't expect this to equal Salt Lick, or Lockhart types. But for a fair price you get a lot to eat. I had Brisket and sausage. Brisket was ok. Sausage was very good. Sides were all good. I hear their fried chicken is also quite good but i didn't try that meat.

Fast food chicken joint. Not very good and no seasoning. Rude employees. There must be better than this. Don't eat here.

Bill Miller is always consistent. They won't blow you away with craft BBQ but you can bank on good brisket and sausage with all the fixins at a delicious price. Top it off with sweet tea and some peach cobbler. An Austin and San Antonio favorite for four decades. Good BBQ for all!

I have been eating here for years starting at locations in San Antonio 30+ years ago. The plates are always good with my favorite being a Poor Boy Plus with beans, pickled onions, and a large tea. Good food that is value priced.

Average food, honest price, good service. Just choose your meat, pick your sides and drinks with the atendants and wait for your meal. Not awesome food, but pretty good, specialy for the price, wich is not expensive at all.That place is really a fast food kind of barbecue.

I didn't not know this place was a fast food type of bbq. We knew things wouldn't go great when we walked in and there was only two tables occupied. The cashiers seemed like we bothered them taking our order. Food came out fast but we left shortly after. The sausage was very fatty and so was the pulled pork.... More

This place is gross. I don't see how anyone in their right mind likes this place. Beef poor boy has no taste whatsoever. French fries were limp and soggy. The serial mist had no syrup in it. I really don't see how this place gets any business. The pecan pie was ok! Stay away from here, go elsewhere, don't waste... More
