I’m convinced all of Birmingham knows about Milo’s because of the way those drive-thru lines looked on their 75th anniversary for those 75 cent burgers. I honestly don’t blame you all one bit. If you haven’t already, you have to make sure to try their lemonade.

The good news is that you don’t have to wait in the drive-thru for the lemonade because you can buy it by the gallon or 20oz bottle in local grocery stores and gas stations. You can even combine it with Milo’s homemade sweet tea for a little extra razzle-dazzle.
