Food Porn: Milton’s

I really didn’t know what to expect before walking into Milton’s last week.  I had always assumed it was the exact same restaurant as it’s neighbor Alton’s, but only because the buildings looked similar.  I knew they served hot dogs, so I assumed that it was more of a casual atmosphere and menu but I didn’t realize how casual it actually was.  When you walk into the restaurant you order at the counter and are given a number and then seat yourself; the menu is incredibly cheap with everything priced under $7.

Alli and I finally visited Milton’s because we were in the area and needed to grab a quick, cheap meal.  Not to mention my coworker Sue told me how she enjoyed their Chicken Soulvaki Pita Wrap and Dill Sauce.

Quick Info:

  • Restaurant Type: Casual/Order at Counter
  • Cuisine: Greek
  • Location: Cheektowaga
  • Price: Everything is under $7, most single items are under $5

Since we knew what we were getting we placed our orders pretty quickly, two combo meals (pita wrap, fries, drinks) and with one of those handy Entertainment Book coupons we only spent $11 on lunch.  The dining area was basically split into two, we sat in a booth to the right of the order counter, our table was a little sticky/wet but nothing horrible.  There aren’t a lot of frills in this restaurant, the seating reminded me of sitting in a family style diner ala Nick’s in South Buffalo or Union Family Restaurant in West Seneca.

I ordered their Gyro Pita Wrap ($4.25, pictured top) while Alli ordered their Chicken Souvlaki ($4.25, above).  Unfortunately, my Gyro was pretty bad.  While the tzatziki sauce was OK and they put a lot of tomatoes on my pita, but the actual Gyro meat honestly looked and tasted like a sausage pattie from McDonalds.  It was clearly processed and frozen and overall not very appetizing. I definitely wouldn’t order this again.

Alli’s Chicken Souvlaki was better then my meal but nothing outstanding or worth really talking about. The dill sauce was good but we have had better, again right next door at Alton’s (though it’s more expensive) or at any other Greek diner.  The French Fries were decent but they had a weird texture, very similar to the coating that Burger King’s fries have.  I know some people love that type of fry texture (like my brother) but I can’t stand it.

We really don’t have much else to say about our meals at Milton’s.  Everything was incredibly cheap and it might be a justifiable decision if you are shopping at the mall with little kids who want something cheap and quick, but don’t expect to have a great meal.  I can’t speak for the rest of the menu, they do chargrill their hot dogs and it’s really hard to mess that up but I doubt I will be going back to ever try it out.  So I’m sure they have some good food to offer someone, but if you are in the mood for Greek food you definitely should look elsewhere.

      Our last visit to Alton’s was almost 2 years ago, so sadly that might mean the food has gone downhill since then. I definitely do not remember the gyro meat being so blah tasting though, the dill sauce who knows. either way i’ll pass, atleast for the greek food.
