BAR B QUE..

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!!!

Step back in time--wide plank floors, probably original walls, dark. Who cares? Take forever to decide among all the tempting offers, give your order to the friendly, patient staff, and go outside to find a seat at one of the weathered wooden picnic tables. Kids, dogs, all ages, the only thing that matters is the quality of the food, which... More

Okay, so next to my recollection of first biting into a Krystal's burger when I was eight years-ld (which might have been the last time I had one), my Happy Burger experience at White Tiger was the most amazing and yummy burger experience ever. So good. Buttery. Oniony. Toasty. Savory. All of it. Delicious. Get one. Now.

Got the salmon sandwich and it was delicious! It's hard to get good, healthy fish takeout, but White Tiger knocked it out of the park! Definitely a repeat. NOTE: They do not do traditional receipts, so reimbursement from my employer was complicated, but we managed it.

White Tiger is terrific neighborhood restaurant located in an old grocery store. The BBQ is excellent, as are all of the sandwiches. There are also always specials on the menu that deserve a try (fish tacos in particular are fantastic!). There is a really excellent outside garden with picnic tables for dining, as well as indoor space when the weather... More

Do not come to White Tiger expecting your typical restaurant experience. Located in a residential neighborhood, White Tiger has a very low key atmosphere. Lots of people from the neighborhood walk to White Tiger and bring their dogs and kids. During the warm weather, the outdoor seating area feels like a neighborhood party. In fact, one of the fun parts... More

I love this place! It has yummy tofu sandwiches....also, portobello ....don't get put off by the simple look...it looks like an old house....but, once you park and get out, the smell will make you hungry....nice staff...just wish it was open more hours!

My mother and I ate lunch at White Tiger last week, and, wow, was it delicious. Our only problem was deciding what to order. I had pulled pork tacos and a side of roasted broccoli. My mom had a chicken salad melt that was outrageously tasty and a cup of chicken soup that was full of shredded chicken meat. The... More
