If you’ve never had a hamburger from Milo’s, now’s a good time to start. And if you simply can’t get enough of those saucy burgers in your belly, it’s a perfect time to load up.
The Alabama fast-food chain is selling its famous burgers for 75 cents today, to help celebrate Milo’s 75th anniversary. The deal will be available to dine-in and drive-thru customers at all 21 Milo’s locations, the company said via a press release.
A maximum of 10 burgers per order is in place for the April 16 promotion, and the price is bound to inspire grins from folks who love Milo’s.
A traditional Milo’s burger — described on the company’s website as a “fresh grilled patty, topped with onions and pickles, drenched in our secret sauce, and served on a warm, grilled bun” — typically costs $4.29, according to the site.
Although many fast-food lovers rave about Milo’s sauce, the company also offers its burgers “The Other Way,” sauce-free but with other fixings intact.
Milo’s, founded in 1946 by Milo Carlton and his wife, Beatrice, has locations in Alabama cities ranging from Decatur to Montgomery to Tuscaloosa. The Carltons opened the original Milo’s Hamburgers shop on Aug. 19, 1946, on 12th Avenue North in Birmingham’s Norwood neighborhood.
It’s no exaggeration to say that people in Alabama simply adore Milo’s: the burgers, the sauce, the sweet tea, the fries and more. Need proof?
Milo’s recently took the top spot in AL.com’s Alabama fast-food bracket, besting seven other restaurants founded in our state: Checkers, Foosackly’s, Guthrie’s, Hamburger Heaven, Jack’s, Sneaky Pete’s and Taco Casa. Readers voted for their favorites in the online competition, and Milo’s ruled supreme.
