The history of Jim and Milt’s
Opened in 1968 by Jim Burgess and Milt Johnson, Jim and Milt’s has been a place you don’t want to miss when visiting the home of the Florida State Seminoles for 44 years.
In 1979, the restaurant was bought by Mike Flury. He and his wife, Debbie, and sons Jim, Ryan and David have owned and managed the operation since that time.
Describe your menu concept.
Jim and Milt’s is a Southern Barbeque restaurant serving smoked chicken, beef and pork. The country breakfast is a mainstay of the restaurant, and we also serve burgers, wings and salads.
We are mindful that we are located close to Florida State and try to offer specials that will appeal to the students as well. Our 49-cent wings, $2.99 pitchers of beer and “All You Can Eat” specials have fed students throughout their college experience.
How do you keep your menu fresh and interesting to returning guests?
We’ve added new menu offerings through the years to keep the menu fresh and current: wings, specials such as country-fried steak and mashed potatoes and sides have expanded from just two offerings to almost anything a customer would want.
What is your most popular dish?
The Yankee is our most popular menu item. It is chopped pork and beef, mixed with Jim and Milt’s secret barbeque sauce.
