“Name confuses me”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2012

White Tiger Goument.....that's a lot to live up too! It's a BBQ Shack and I do mean SHACK! The place is a little out of the way, it's off boulevard just a couple of blocks off Prince. But the food is darn good.

I had the BBQ plate but I think the BBQ sandwich would have been better, the slaw is awesome. But the Mac and cheese was terrible.

Staff is very friendly and helpful, and the prices are good! I can recommend this place for at least a try. But call ahead the hours are strange.

“Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2012

This is a hidden gem in the Boulevard Historic Neighborhood. BYOB and come for great fish, ribs, salads. You'll hang with the locals and come back over and over.

“Hippy Burger Joint”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2012

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.

“Don't knock it until you try it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2012 via mobile

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!

“Funky neighborhood BBQ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2012

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.
