It is unique that White Tiger has vegetarian options for BBQ- it definitely fills a niche. Meat eaters and vegetarians/vegans can go here and find something good to eat. It is fairly quick and casual. They do not have alcohol but you can bring your...More

Two BBQ plates, one with mac and cheese and one with fresh veggies. Those were wonderful, but the slaw was not edible. Coarsely grated cabbage with celery seeds and what tasted like watered mayonaise. No salt. Neither of us would eat it.

Magical place. No words to describe. We recently visited White Tiger, there were two vegetarians and two meat eaters in party. WE all had some of the BEST food we had ever eaten. Ken, the owner, was out and about greeting everyone. By the time...More

The outside of this restaurant is not at all appealing...the inside isn't so great either. The food, is great! You order at the counter when you first walk in and when the foods ready they'll bring it out to you. Barbecue chicken and pork are...More

This is the ideal restaurant for the Boulevard Neighborhood, and its owners hit it out of the part every way imaginable. The BBQ is fantastic, getting fresh seasonal veggies grilled as a side is equally awesome, and the place gas a great vibe. Pro Tip...More
