We were visiting Hiawassee and deciding upon the reviews to try this place out. We were not disappointed! We ordered the pork plate and it was fantastic. The chopped pork and all the sides, coleslaw, beans, potato salad, mac and cheese were all wonderful. Great staff as well!

Chopped chicken and pork is very tender and very tasty. The ribs have a great taste. When you come in you can't miss the Wonderful aroma. Will be back. Recommend highly!

My husband & I always have to stop at a bar-b-que place when we're traveling. If this isn't the very best in the southeast US, then it's the best in GA for sure! The ribs melt in your mouth. Must order the side of beans. You'll turn up the cup for the last delicious morsel. Friendly staff. Definitely coming back!

I've moved to the North Georgia Mountains recently and decided one week to taste and compare some of the local BBQ. By far, The Happy Hawg wins hands down. The meat was lean and juicy and when topped with the Carolina Mustard based sauce (my preference) it was amazing. No grease or charred meat. The beans and slaw were excellent too.

This spot was a real treat in every way! BBQ was very tender and flavorful, and all 4 BBQ sauces (traditional sweet/tangy, vinegary, mustardy, and hot sauce) were housemade and yummy. The sides all tasted freshly made, even though it was the end of the day--we had slaw, mac&cheese, potato salad, and real Vidalia onions. Do try the slaw as it was the simplest and healthiest I've ever had (no mayo!) so I could not believe how tasty and refreshing it was. We enjoyed the cheerful red-checked table cloth atmosphere too! OH -- and we really appreciated their having internet available to customers. Too bad I live in Michigan -- I would love to eat there again!
