Miller’s Grill (224 E. Capitol St., Jackson) is second only to Steve’s in terms of the number of times I’ve eaten there for lunch. It’s fast, it’s grilled and/or fried to order, and everything I’ve had so far has been tasty.
The burger patty may just be your standard thin-style patty, but it is well seasoned (salt and pepper, with more pepper than most burgers) and grilled right. There are plenty of topping options; I got basic cheddar and ketchup and was perfectly satisfied. The fact that the bun is warmed on the grill in a bit of butter certainly doesn’t hurt.
I’d never even tried the fries until a friendly commenter noted how good they were. I completely forgot to get the special sauce to dip them in (what is that sauce?), but they tasted great on their own (I asked for salt and pepper seasoning). They’re obviously the skin-on kind, which I always prefer. As a bonus, I got a fluke piece of chicken tender mixed in with my fries (for a fun game, see if you can spot it in the photo). I had seen at least three people in front of me order the tenders, and after trying this one I understood why. As much as I liked my burger and fries, the one tender was my favorite part of the meal.
In the past I’ve also enjoyed the chicken philly cheesesteak (above) and the club (below). The chicken philly was especially good; there were plenty of deliciously sauteed mushrooms in there for some extra umami. The club included typical ingredients (with your choice of sub toppings) but I think just the fact that everything spends some time on that grill of theirs makes it all better than average. It could just be the butter on the grill, but I’d like to think it’s more than that.
