This is a staple of downtown Athens that you don't want to miss. Some of the best soul food you'll ever try. The collard greens and sweet potato souffle are off the charts. A must stop every time you're in Athens, automatic!!

We found this place by accident and it was a great find! Some of the best fried chicken I've ever had -- light and not greasy and fried to perfection. We enjoyed the vegetable sides too.

My son is a student at UGA and has found a new favorite local restaurant with Weaver D's. I'm happy to know he's getting some good home cooking while he's away at school!

The food is what keeps people coming back. Weaver D's serves up true soul food and in a cozy, no-frills setting. My partner got the dark chicken plate and I got a veggie plate. Don't miss the sweet potato soufflé as a side! Cornbread comes...More
