Milo's Hamburgers is a regional fast-food restaurant chain based in Alabama, United States. As of 2016, Milo's has 16 restaurants, 15 in the Birmingham metro area, one in Southside, one in Tuscaloosa (which was destroyed in the EF4 tornado on April 27, 2011[1] and a new Milo's was recently constructed in a new location, thereby replacing the destroyed restaurant).[2] Milo's is known for its secret hamburger sauce and sweet tea, both included with a pie in the Mega Meal combo. Its slogan is "Everybody goes to... Milo's"[3][4]

History[edit]

The restaurant was established by Milo Carlton, who, on April 16, 1946, opened Milo's Hamburger Shop in Birmingham, at 31st Street and 12th Avenue North. The restaurant moved to 2820 10th Avenue North in 1963. Milo's began selling franchises in 1983; the first franchise location, at 509 18th Street South in Birmingham, opened February 7, 1983.[5][6] Since the 1980s, they also distribute their own tea brand in Alabama, Arkansas, Mississippi, Tennessee, Georgia, Louisiana, as well as parts of Kentucky, Virginia, South Carolina, and the Florida panhandle.[4][7] It can also be found for purchase as far away as California.
