Clean Plate Winner:

Milo's Hamburgers

1005 Beltline Rd SE, Decatur, AL 35601

Score: 98

Since 1946, Milo's Hamburgers is 'Staying Saucy.'

Its sauce bar features an array of unique dips. The manager says they go through a five-gallon bucket of their famous secret sauce every three days.

Milo's says only two people in the company know the recipe.

The Alabama based chain's only location in our area in Decatur on Beltline Rd. is serving up breakfast items like Conecuh sausage, eggs, grits and more.

Housemade breading makes for crisp and juicy chicken tenders.

But they're known for their 'original saucy burger' topped with their famous sauce and a little extra piece of meat, part of their mission to always give customers 'a little something extra.'

That sentiment leading to the formation of the Little Something Extra Foundation, that supports local education and students.

They say cleanliness is also one of their core values.
