Wiley’s is a must go. So many BBQ joints around and this one is on the top of the list. Has all the staples and some amazing unique items like the Philly brisket sandwich and redneck nachos. If you are lucky enough to visit when...they have their burnt end special it is a must have. Also all of their sides are top notch. Their collards are on point people rave about the baked beans (have not tried since I am hooked on other sides) they have friendly staff and $2.50 drafts all the time. So glad this place is right around the corner from our house….oh and don’t forget to grab a bottle or two of their homemade BBQ sauces.More

We did a family road trip to Florida and this place was so amazing. I looked up places to stop on the way to eat, and really wanted a good Georgian BBQ , this was my decision based on previous reviews. This was so satisfying....The customer service was impeccable! Our server Vince was informative about the menu, and had great recommendations. Vince was kind and truly made us feel like we were at home. We met the owner who is also very amicable and appreciative of everything. The food was delicious! We ordered the Sampler plate + ribs & a peach cobbler. All was tasty, fell off the bone, and tender. We even bought the BBQ sauce and the pepper sauce! Would definitely stop in here again if ever in the area.More

From the location (a quaint strip mall with East of Savannah), to the creative menu my family ate a legend BBQ meal. Brisket was moist and tender; pulled pork flavorful; the one rib I had was fall-off-the-bone good; and the “Redneck Nachos” a delightful surprise!...My 5 yo gladly finished the fresh fried chicken. My wife enjoyed the Brunswick stew & fried okra. She was blown away by the Philly-style brisket “cheesesteak”. I make a good kosher brisket & a better Texas-style brisket. If you love BBQ, this is a must try for Savannah area visitors!More

We always go out of our way when traveling anywhere close to the Savannah area to visit Wiley’s BBQ and it’s so worth it! Start with the meat sampler plate with ribs (a good share) add in any side (they are all amazing) and end...with the most delicious peanut butter pie! Our whole family agrees …. Five stars!More

Took the family to Wiley’s Champion BBQ on Whitemarsh Island. We had the best BBQ dinners. Beef Brisket, Pulled Pork and the Redneck Nochos were delicious. Highly recommend if you’re looking for great BBQ a little outside the city.

The outside of the building was not much to look at (run down strip mall), but the food was amazing! Vince was our server and he was extremely attentive, friendly and helpful. The BBQ pork and brisket were some of the best we've had. The...mac n cheese and sweet potato casserole were good. All of the sauces were great and the restrooms were very clean. We will be back!More

Food here was awesome! Our waiter Vince was top notch. We wanted for nothing. The nachos are amazing if you are looking for a good appetizer. All the sauces are so good it was hard to decide which one was best!

Truly some of the best bbq that we have ever tasted. We attend the Reno Rib Cook Off annually and Wiley’s would easily be a winner amongst the best in the west. The ribs were flavorful and slid off the bone. The rib tip special...was plentiful and so tasty. Make sure you upgrade to the best beans as they are sweet, delicious, and live up to their name. We liked all 3 sauces though they seemed to have a very similar taste. Our server was Cade. His service was exemplary. Owner Nick was super friendly, checked in on us a couple of times, and is a pleasure to talk to. I wish this place could be cloned in CA!More

We were pretty hungry when we arrived to Savannah and this was our first stop. We were not disappointed! The food was delicious! I especially recommend the pulled pork and brisket sliders with their Original BBQ sauce and the Redneck Nachos! Don't forget the peach...cobbler, it was nice and sweet. They make Kansas City style BBQ and being from KC, we give it 2 thumbs up! The owner even came to our table and gave us recommendations for what to see and do in Savannah. The only small complaint was that the kid who was waiting also had to make drinks, so he took a little bit to get our order and I was hungry, lol. It was worth the wait though and the food came out pretty quickly after we ordered.More

If I could give more than 5 starsI would: cleanliness, friendliness, decor, quality of food, price & value of food are all exemplary! We were greeted warmly by Vince as we entered. He spent time walking through the menu. As we waited for our food...I looked around at the decor-the colors, the lights, the pictures were great. I had the pork with potato salad and it was amazing. I even tried my first fried okra and really liked it. Dessert was banana pudding (a must have in the South) and it was delicious. They use a shortbread type cookie vs the vanilla wafer. The best barbecue I have ever eaten! All of those awards were solidly earned.More

I do not know. They were full when we ate there but did not seem to have any problem accommodating anyone who came through the door.
