If you want to feel like a towny, this is the place for you. It is located off the beating path of all the other restaurants in town. They have a wide burger selection. On some nights they have a band or musician playing during dinner. They also have a night where they give you free PBR with your order (I believe it was Thursday night). If your an Athens foody and towny this is the place for you.

I've driven by white tiger a few times and the outward apprence didn't do it for me. But after reading reviews I decided to check it out myself.

Once you walk in it has everything you live about Athens ga! It has the charm and the uniqueness I look for in a restaurant. Inside is full of random chairs but it makes you feel like your eating at your "souther" grandmas house.
The employees are the teamster type but they were so nice, unlike the smug teamsters you find DT. I had a BBQ sandwich and Mac and cheese and it was so good! The BBQ had a great smoke flavor and the sauce was a vinegar base, along w a big bun it just worked- super solid. My buddy got a BBQ taco and it had all the presentation you would look for and the taste to match. Loved it, I'll be a regular!

White Tiger Gourmet really is gourmet, but with a twist. The chef was trained at NY's Culinary Institute of America, yet the down home menu and certainly the setting (the old Thrasher's neighborhood grocery) would never belie that. The Barbarella sandwich (fabulous BBQ with mozzarella on local artisian ciabatta) is fabulous, and the sides are all yummy, especially the grilled cabbage and macaroni and cheese. To top it off, they sell handmade gourmet chocolates, if you still have room! White Tiger has picnic tables for good weather, including warmish winter days, and it's dog friendly outside. One of my favorite local lunch places. Vegetarian friendly, too.

This is a bar-b-que and burger joint. I've never had their burgers, but I've tried a couple bbq plates and they are pretty good. Mostly, I like this place because the food is decent, you can byob, it's pretty cheap, you can bring your dog, and you can eat outside on picnic tables.

Outstandingly punget, fantastic tasting wood smoked pork sandwich. Mac n cheese that will take you back to mama's kitchen. A great, very laid back setting both indoors and out in a 100+ year old neighborhood grocery. If you want a place full of local flavor (and I mean great flavor) you won't be disappointed in the White Tiger.
