I've been going to Milano's for about 7 years now, maybe not so much in the past couple of years since Murfreesboro has many more restaurants from which to choose now! Still, Milano's for lunch is a great experience for not a lot of bucks.
The lasagna is best when you get there before, say 1:30. Fresh, lots of cheese, great seasonings, and plenty of sauce. Comes with a fresh salad with their trademark dressing and fresh-baked bread. Service has always been better than average. Terrific tiramisu and make sure you get some fresh-brewed coffee with it - very mellow! :)
Another favorite of mine is the chicken marsala, but the fettucini alfredo with shrimp added and the pasta primavera are both good too!
I'm not much for going out for dinner, as I'm kinda economy minded, but for lunch you can't beat the atmosphere, service, and value. You'll get out of there for well under $10.
I happened to notice that the only positive review ONE of these guys left was for Fuddrucker's, which by the way, has closed in Murfreesboro. Everything else he didn't like is still perking right along .... hmmmm. ;) Enjoy!
Pros: No wait, good food, reasonable prices
Cons: Big after-church crowds - get reservations!
