Mmmm.... Delicious! The sauces were fantastic so fantastic that I used a little of all of them on my piglets! Pork sandwiches were fantastic. The sides were just as good as the meat. And the staff was so nice and helpful! Go visit you won't be disappointed!

“Great pork sandwich”
Reviewed July 18, 2014 via mobile

We stopped in for lunch before the fair. The staff was friendly and the food was delicious we had the pork sandwich and the chicken BBQ both were very good. I'm not a fan of finely chopped cole slaw but the potato salad was so good!

“Great BBQ”
Reviewed July 17, 2014

I had driven by several times and noticed that great BBQ smell. Stopped by, very friendly service, great tasting pork sandwich. The owner/staff saw me take a to go menu and stopped me to explain their sides and their drive-thru option. Outdoor seating has a view of Lake Chatuge. I will be back.

“Friendly staff!”
Reviewed July 1, 2014

The Happy Hawg's #1 rating convinced us to stop, and we are glad we did! It is so refreshing to be greeted by employees who are genuinely glad you chose their restaurant. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. The barbecue is good, but the sauces are excellent. The buns were very fresh! Don't skip dessert! The peanut butter/chocolate pie is divine! We would definitely stop here again!

“The BEST BBQ near Hiawassee”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

This restaurant is all about the food. It's small and can get very crowded at meal time. They also do a booming carry out business. BBQ can be a regional taste but, I found this BBQ to not lean toward one region or the other. It was some of the best pulled/chopped pork I've ever had and there was a good selection of sauces to satisfy your "regional" needs. It seemed to be family run and they took a lot if pride in their product and were very friendly, like you've known them your whole life. Definitely on the repeat list!
