Athens's Original Dive

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... read 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

Nice old place, just make sure you find a place to eat inside or the Mosquitos will eat you alive in their outdoor tables. The food is tasty !

I have been looking forward to trying White Tiger for a while, with a CIA trained chef and lots of excellent buzz, and finally made it for lunch. I had the barbecue and tried the Alice Burger. So disappointing! The barbecue plate had a small portion of vinegary pork, a course vinegary cole slaw and some tasteless mac and cheese.... More

I had a BarbQ sandwich and it was good. Friend had a chicken sandwich and liked it as well. Older building, but interesting! Off the beaten path!

My friend Lee texted meet me at the White Tiger. I am a 30+ year Athenian but I had to go to Google Maps for directions because this one was a new restaurant to me. I wound around in a residential area and then there it was. Was I ever underwhelmed. A ramshacked old house with a bunch of picnic... More

We were out walking around and stumbled onto this little place. I had never heard of it before but everything, and I mean everything, from the hand made burgers, smoked chicken, fresh made slaw, grilled asparagus, and grill pimento cheese sandwiches, was OFF the CHaRTs!!!! Best food in town, hands down!!!
