Where to Eat in Milan: The Best Restaurants and Bars

April 14, 2018 Leonarda Pillsbury

Milan (/ˈmaɪ.lʌn/) is the second largest city after Humboldt in Gibson County, Tennessee, and the largest entirely within the county. It is home to the Milan Army Ammunition Plant, the West Tennessee Agricultural Museum and several historical sites listed on the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP). The city was the first in Tennessee to begin no-till farming and to flouridate its drinking water. The Milan Endowment for Growth in Academics (MEGA) was the first private community financial endowment for public schools in Tennessee.

We were unsure about this place from the outside but it turned out the staff were extremely friendly. The servide was excellent and the food turned out to be very good. It is a small family cafe that even offers drive through. Much better place than some fast food chains that I won't mention. Try it you'll like it.

Got our order to go for feeding out-of-town family after a funeral. The order was called in ahead of time. When we went to pick it up they had it ready and it was exactly as requested. They were generous with the portions and the food was delicious.

Maria's Mexican Grill

Reviewed By Monica B - Milan

Chips are thin and always warm when brought to table. Salsa is excellent. Food is well seasoned and cooked properly. Food is not swimming in cheese like so many of the other Mexican restaurants. If you want to try something a little different, get the molcajete. It is fantastic. Service is great. A must try restaurant.

Usually, this is your average Mexican restaurant but the last time we went, it had no flavor at all. I ordered the chicken with peppers and onions, but just really tasteless.

We don't have a Perkins where I live. It is a 2 hour drive to get to one. We were in Milan Saturday and I couldn't pass up the opportunity for some Peanut Butter Cup French Silk Pie. All the food was very good. Staff was attentive. And the pie was worth the drive!

I went through the drive thru and ordered chicken fries and a chocolate shake. The employees looked like they were all special needs. The shake was given to me with chocolate dribbling down the cup and the chicken fries were cold and rubbery. The window attendant was friendly though.

I've eaten at Hig's Restaurant several times over the last few years and every time I go the food is always good. It is tasty, full of flavor and always kept at the proper temperatures. The employees are friendly and helpful. I always enjoy eating there.

The pizza was about what you would expect from Domnios, but the wings were gross. The BBQ sauce was like a thick, sweet brown gravy. Like a paste. I ate two of the wings and tapped out. $10 wasted.

I have been ordering from pizza hut Milan for three years. They have the best customer service around. They are an example of how other Pizza hut restaurants should be. Top rate service. Workers should be recognized for the great job they do!
