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

The White Tiger is in a converted house, in what appears to be a residential neighborhood. Our group had the pimento cheese, a pork loin special, a handful of burgers, macaroni & cheese and hotdogs for the munchkins. The setting is fun and the food was delicious. Going to the restroom will remind you of playing hide n' seek at... More

Tucked away on a quiet street (Hiawassee) in the Boulevard neighborhood, I found the best burger I've eaten anywhere in this town during the last 15 years I've lived here. Haven't tried much else on the menu because the burger is so darn good, I can't make myself NOT order it every time I go! They use fresh, local, and... More
