loooooooove village inn

First off if you were looking for a 5 star restaurant dont go there. My whole family loves this restaurant and go every time we can. It is a down home place and we love the style. I feel that the person who reviewed it before me could have been nicer you can not like a place and still be nice in the review. The chicken tastes awesome everythign is good and my family buys a few of the big size plates adn we split it. over all i wish this place was here in AZ where I now live. Its really a fun place to eat.



Not What We Expected...

This was an intersting experience. My wife, three kids and myself all had to go to Akron to look at a car the first week of December 2009. Since we were coming all the way from the Mansfield area we thought we would stop and check out the lake in the middle of Barberton which I had heard about a few years ago. While researching Barberton on Wikipedia I discovered that the Barberton area is supposedly "world famous" for chicken. Our family are fried chicken nuts so we thought we would check out one of the four famous chicken houses listed on the Wikipedia page. By looking at the reviews for some of the other chicken houses online, we decided to give Milich's Village Inn a try. We also were very impressed with their website which was very professional, inviting and modern - just how we expected the restaurant to be. Boy were we in for a shock. This establishment looks like an abandoned restaurant from the 60's. When we first pulled up, by the looks of things, we actually thought that maybe they weren't open for business anymore. The inside of Milich's perfectly matches the outside - old and outdated. Not surprisingly, the menu matched the inside and outside decor perfectly. Sometimes a lack of updates can be charming - in this case, it is not. The menu was difficult to understand. We had a family of five, but could not find a family deal on the menu. If we wanted fried chicken, the only options available were FOUR piece meals with three sides for approx. nine dollars each (without a drink). Do the math on that one. That would be over upwards of $60 with tip. Not to mention the fact that no one in my family can eat four pieces of chicken and three sides - that is ridiculous. If you can do that then I recommend getting some blood work done at your earliest convenience. I told the waitress that we could not eat such large portions at which time she said we could order off the kids menu which I thought was reasonable. Two pieces of chicken and three sides for about five or six dollars (no drink included). We were waiting on our food and the waitress brings over a few slices of bread and some butter from a loaf of bread she had just opened. Yes, you read that right. Not home baked bread - there were tons of loaves of bread (schwebel's I think) that she was just opening and bringing to the table. I've never seen this done before. It seems very lazy and actually kind of embarrasing that they do this. What restaurant brings you a few slices of bread from a loaf of bread that you would buy at a store? Milich's Village Inn does - that's who. So we didn't have to wait too long for this world famous chicken (10 minutes maybe). Except for myself, all of my family gets cole slaw as on of their three sides which they all hate. Turns out that this is a vinegar based cole slaw, not a creamy cole slaw. No one in my family had ever had this variation before. The potatoes and gravy were instant and were fair at best. I did enjoy the green beans, but my children did not care for the fries which they normally devour anywhere we go. Now let's get to the chicken... what can I say? Very average if that. No spices of any kind in the breading. By appearance and taste I would compare it to a boxed frozen chicken you can buy at walmart - maybe a little better. I would give it a 5 or 6 on a scale of 1 to 10. To me chicken is like pizza - It's good even when it's bad. I cleaned my plate, but more because it was 2:00 p.m. and not because of the deliciousness of the meal. Why is this place famous? Why is it still open? Why is this chicken famous? And why did they open a loaf of store bought bread and bring it to us? I am not a KFC fan, but Milich's Village Inn could learn a thing or two from even fast food chicken.

It is the same style of chicken, hot sauce and Cole slaw with bread from a loaf at all chicken houses in Barberton. That is what they are famous for. Plus they are all served in the same style restaurant. Best chicken ever!!
