Great que and sides. Small family run restaurant. Classic southern bbq experience, with a few unique items thrown in.

We literally just fell upon this restaurant and I am thankful we did! I ordered the Hickory Tater and it was soooo much food. My husband ordered the two piglets. We ended up sharing food because we were so amazed at how good it was. My 8 year old daughter referred to the turkey as "melt in your mouth". In... More

The family stopped in and ate on the way to Young Harris College. The food was great!! Very Friendly Staff! We had the Piglets which were barbecue sliders, and the smoked turkey was incredible. Definitely stop in and eat, if you are in the area.

Stopped by for the first time, and it was okay. My friend had a sandwich and a side, and I had the pork plate with two sides. We both had a drink too. His was about $9 bucks and mine was nearly $11 bucks. We measure BBQ places against a favorite we go to as often as possible, and this... More

We went to the Happy Hawg after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor, and like another person said i wished they had a large size for us big guys. My wife and i went back for a second time and it was just as good as the first visit. I think the reason i want a larger portion is it... More

This is a nice little restaurant. Their BBQ is tasty but the quantity of food seems small. The owner is a dedicated friendly guy. I just wish a meal would fill me up. Given the current quantity of food I must say the value for the price is not great.

This BBQ is amazing! I had the little piglets which are basically sliders. They put a heaping scoop of pulled pork on each roll. Their coleslaw is vinegar based (no mayo! yay!) and tastes amazing. The service is quick and friendly. We met the owners while we were there and they are super friendly and made sure our meals were... More

This place is tops. Meat is slow-smoked on the premises, chopped when you order your food. This is for both on premises and take out foods. Some of the best barbeque I have had anywhere, and I've traveled throughout the US. I love this spot.

My girlfriend and I stopped here for dinner Friday evening, mostly because of the reviews. I got the ribs and chopped pork, while my girlfriend had the smoked turkey. I should have had the turkey. It was really tasty, and much better than the ribs or pork, both of which were cooked perfectly, but lacked smoke flavor, or seasoning of... More
