Even if they are out of the BBQ, and that does happen....anything we have ever eaten there is delicious! I love the grilled cabbage in the grilled vegetables medley...and may just ask for the cabbage alone next time...yummy!

The Bar b Que sandwich reminded me of Jim & Nicks. It was good. I had quite a wait. It was near the end of lunch time very few customers still there. They were preparing call in orders people were picking up. I ordered my sandwich to go. I noticed a health inspection rating 78. It is not a place... More

If you go to White Tiger on a Saturday night, they frequently are out of menu items, like BBQ, chicken, AND salmon... because of the Friday night & Saturday lunch crowds. Friendly staff with great food but the wait for burgers this time was much longer than usual. The location in the Boulevard district is a little eclectic and fun.... More

As a frequent visitor I encourage you try this restaurant if you have not and to go more often if you have. These type of businesses are very unfortunately a dying experience in America. It is located in a residential area of Athens, and the former home of a neighborhood grocery store. It still has the old wood coolers and... More

Great tasting Vinegar based barbecue chicken platter with Mac and cheese and slaw. They also had a refreshing limeade drink that I really liked.I saw others ordering vegetarian friendly dishes that looked delicious as well which I look forward to trying next time. Great hidden gem to enjoy with friends and family:)

White Tiger's building is a 100 year old neighborhood grocery store, so expect an eccentric local dining environment with an option to eat at picnic tables outside under the trees & lights. The outside and around bathroom is another memorable time.., The BBQ sandwich is amazing, and on some nights if you order the salmon ciabatta sandwich, you'll get two... More

We decided to try this funky place based on trip advisor ratings and comments. We ordered a cheese steak and a Portobello burger with a side of coleslaw each ( beware you have to pay separately for the sides). Service was very casual and our food arrived fairly fast. As we started eating my boyfriend realized his burger did not... More

Casual, eclectic and delicious. Oh, and you have to know how to find it! This place sums up Athens well. While the name sounds Asian, they actually serve up delicious BBQ and casual American cuisine. Order at the counter and take a seat at mismatched tables and chairs - either inside or out. Its also BYOB.

I live about two and a half miles down the road from this joint and I can't believe today is the first day I have eaten there. I believe the reason to be because of my work schedule but man oh man am I glad I finally went. The patty melt and it knocked my socks off. I had a... More

This is really a "hidden gem" in Athens. I've been coming for business like in the last 10 years and I can not believe that I've never came here to eat. Well... today my friend Kaitlin took me there for lunch. When we arrived in the car, I told her: What the hell is that??!!!!... from outside, it looks like... More
