The Miller Grill
Tim’s Drive Inn
FireLake Fry Bread Taco
A takeout box should be mandatory with pretty much any entrée at The Miller Grill. Its Indian taco is 12 inches in diameter and weighs about four pounds. On Tuesdays, the massive fry bread is only $5.99. If that’s not enough, there is the Indian Taco challenge that weighs 13.5 pounds. Challengers have an hour to clean the plate or it will cost $39.99.
An institution on MacArthur since 1956, it is the only place in the metro where you can get a true Indian taco from a drive-thru window that is as good as any other rendition. When it comes served in the Styrofoam container, the chili spills over the sides for a genuine forkand-knife endeavor. On Wednesdays, the taco runs as a $5.49 special, but it’s only $6.49 the rest of the week. Just remember to bring cash.
The customizable experience begins with fry bread that features a recipe from Citizen Potawatomi Nation members. Customers then choose a type of meat (including bison), bean (black, chili, pinto), a variety of fresh vegetables and a choice of hot sauce. The shop also sells fry bread topped with just meat or fruit and also dishes out a mean bowl of corn soup.
