I generally consider BBQ as either good or bad - there is very little latitude when you cook meat for hours until it falls off the bone and then cover it in sauce. Wiley's ribs and pulled pork are both very well cooked. They have the tenderness from slow cooking but still maintain some of the consistency and taste of the original cut of meat. Wiley's sauce is good, not great and it doesn't necessarily separate itself from the pack.
On the other hand I felt COMPLETELY at home at Wiley's and recommend a stop by here whenever you're headed to Tybee or Wilmington. Service was friendly, the storefront is small and homey, and they don't try to do more than their original goal. My wife and I both enjoyed our dinner and will return here often.
The ribs were fine, but the pulled pork sandwich was different in a great way. Instead of a big glob of unrecognizable and dripping pork, this sandwich is served on texas toast with meat that is maintained in large chunks, almost like it was halfway between the whole roast and the final product you'd find at an average BBQ joint.
Our bill came out around 40$ for 2 beers, 1 sandiwch, 4 ribs, 3 sides. Seemed a bit pricey but not a price point that would make me hesitant to return.
