“Don't pass it by ...”
Reviewed November 10, 2012

While we were in town, used TripAdvisor for restaurant advice. We found the spot with a little extra effort, since our vehicle GPS system sent us in the wrong direction. When we found our destination, we were hesitant to stop because of the smallness of size and lack of cars in the lot.

But make no mistake, you must take a chance and experience this for yourself. The food was awesome and the owners/chef were very accommodating. The lack of cars was due to it being close to closing time.

“Great barbecue!!!”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

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!

“Recommend!”

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!

“Hawg-licous!”
Reviewed September 28, 2012 via mobile

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!

“Lean, moist and savory”
Reviewed September 5, 2012

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.
