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

(To be fair, I don't actually like BBQ flavor, so I can't comment on the sauces, but my husband said they were good.) We stopped for a quick dinner on the recommendation of other Trip Advisor reviews and also because it was so close to our cabin. Awesome smoked turkey - probably the best I have had! Our 15-month-old loved... More

I was out for a motorcycle ride and wanted to stop in another town for BBQ. However due to a festival their was to much traffic to get there so I looped around to Hiawassee and to try out the Happy Hawg. Man am I sure glad I did! The food and homemade sauces were fabulous! I had the pork... More

After reading reviews on Trip Advisor, my wife and I stopped here for lunch. First off, it's a real cute little spot, and second, they know how to do BBQ. Both of us had their Chopped Pork Platter, accompanied by two sides. The meat was perfect, moist and delicious and our sides were great too. The folks behind the counter... More
