Miller's Bar, despite the name, is actually best known for what comes out of its kitchen rather than behind the bar. Since 1941 Miller's has been serving up a simple menu: burgers, with Swiss cheese or Velveeta, fries, onion rings and tuna, corned beef, ham and grilled cheese sandwiches. But what they are really known for nationwide is the burger, which is hand ground daily beginning at 4a. Standard condiments are available as are onions and pickles, but you won't find any lettuce or tomato here - don't worry you won't miss it!
