“Wow! Great BBQ in a Tiny Place”
Reviewed July 4, 2013

We stopped here for lunch on the way out of town and we were very happy. Food was great! Staff was friendly! Tiny place was clean and cozy!

If they keep it up, they will be looking for a bigger place.

“Happy Hawg in Heaven over this BBQ”
Reviewed June 26, 2013

We only got sandwiches cause we got there at closing time but definitely will be going back just for the bbq (although we frequent Hiawassee at least every 2 or 3 months) The line behind us was wrapped around the building but the only thing left was chicken, pork or slaw. We will get there earlier next time so we can try some of those mouth watering sounding sides and dessert!! See you in July.

“Best in Town”
Reviewed June 22, 2013 via mobile

I am a local here in Hiawassee and this little place is by far the best BBQ in the area! Great service, clean and mouth watering BBQ and fixings! You can't go wrong by stopping in and meeting the friendly staff

“Seriously good BBQ”
Reviewed June 9, 2013 via mobile

I can't believe I live in Hiawassee and I haven't tried the Happy Hawg before today. I had the pork sandwhich and it was the best BBQ I've ever eaten. The macaroni salad was amazing. The sauces are also great. All around this was some seriously great food and I can't wait to go back! If you live here or visiting you must stop and try the BBQ you can't go wrong!
