Was looking forward to trying this championship BBQ and we came the day they had no pork and brisket due to the smokers malfunction. We stayed and had a chicken sandwich and the burnt ends. The burnt ends were very good and we liked the potato salad and cole slaw. I had sweet potato casserole and it came out lukewarm...... More

I love the burnt ends of pit beef and they have it as a sandwich! Seriously enough said but I have to hit 50 characters so make sure you get their early because seating in limited but its worth it.

These folks have been awarded a lot of accolades and the BBQ definitely backs them up. Went to pick up an order to go and when I arrived the placed had all of it's tables full (not a big place) and there were lots of folks standing around waiting for their "to-go" orders as well. Everything I ordered was of... More

YankeeOne, Do they actually have Yankees in Colorado? Thank you for your review, and in response to our place being not so fancy, the ambiance tastes good even with mustard, ketchup, and BBQ sauce. I would agree with you about your comment about sides from my own personal experience...I know exactly what you're saying. Our goal when we opened the... More

the food was not that great I was really disappointed. the bbq sauces was missing something. and for nine dollars i was expecting fries but no only a small bag of zappy chips. The staff was not friendly and was too busy talking to each other. the waitress kept our tea full and services time was not long but they... More

Pam E, I would definitely have to agree with you, when you state that perhaps you were too harsh, and especially in regards to the BBQ sauce. The sauce is what we competed with all over the country in professional BBQ competitions. I will apologize for my staff because it drives me crazy if they are in a conversation with... More

We stopped by for dinner. We were early so it was easy to get a table, there was 5 of us. We were excited to eat here due to the reviews. The food was really good, we had bbq brisket, sausage, ribs...no complaints & loved the bbq sauce. It was really warm in the restaurant and hard to enjoy our... More

Califdesire, I am pleased that you good folks from California enjoyed our food. I think what you experienced in our restaurant is what you experience all over Savannah...there is a good bit of difference in the climate between California and Savannah. There's no doubt about it, that we people who live here suffer through the hot and muggy summer months.... More

Once again, trip advisor led us to a place we would have missed or dismissed by driving on by. Our service was quick, our ice tea glasses stayed full and the good was excellent. The ribs and pulled pork were both delicious and the collards and brocolli rice sides were as well. I fully intended to try the praline bread... More

SwitzerH, That makes two us....we are glad that Trip Advisor led you to try our restaurant and you enjoyed our food and hospitality. One thing my waitstaff might have overlooked is that I offer a free nap with every meal (Ha!). Glad you left full, next time remember to save room for that dessert. Wiley More

We visited Wiley's on our last day in Savannah based on the high ratings from TripAdvisor and Yelp. We stopped for lunch after visiting nearby Bonaventure Cemetery. There was a short wait, even though we arrived a little before noon. I counted six tables plus a small counter inside, with a couple more tables outside. After ordering (and gulping a... More

Holly P, When you're wrong, you're wrong. My staff did make a mistake on your order, and another tables order got confused with yours, which caused a delay. This doesn't happen very often, but one time is one too many. Hindsight being 20/20, there are a couple things that I would like to point out. The first being to my... More

I have to admit we weren't expecting much. The restaurant is really small, only a few tables. But the food was good & filling & the service fast. Good tea, too. I'm glad we stopped.

Ksee73, It's great when people come in with lower expectations, and leave with higher ones. To me, that is the fun of dining out. When you don't know what to expect, but you walk away with a smile on your face. We're glad you stopped by too, and hope to exceed your expectations again on your next visit. Wiley More

I am from Texas so I am super picky about my barbeque. The servers are amazingly friendly. The establishment itself is very small. I knew that going in so I can't complain about that. I had four kids with me and two of them were toddlers so we opted to sit outside. My kids were bouncing off the chairs outside... More

Shereejones36, With a smile on my face, why is it you Texans always start your conversations with "I'm from Texas"? It would lead one to believe that BBQ was created in Texas in the stone age. Actually, years ago, when we were on the competition BBQ circuit, our team competed against the Texans and we beat them at their own... More

We really wanted some good BBQ on our last night in Savannah & Tybee area and found Wiley's Championship BBQ (tip: in the same plaza as five guys). This place was perfect, we loved the food. Sorry we missed out on the ribs and mac/cheese but everything was so good. The service was wonderful and we felt right at home.

G_Family_07, I'm glad you enjoyed the comfort of our place. When we first opened, our goal was to create a "Cheers" like bar....it didn't matter whether you were from Savannah, or not from Savannah, we wanted to create a place everyone felt at home. Since you missed out on the ribs and mac n' cheese, that's definitely a sign you... More
