“Best bbq I've ever had!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2014 via mobile

The pulled pork was fantastic. Not chewy or fatty and the sauce had just the right spice to it. The beans and fries made a killer combo. Wish I had tried the mac and cheese and green beans, too. Guess I'll have to come back to Savannah!

Vniesen,
Does it get any better to have a happy, well-fed customer from Newnan aka Coweta County? We are delighted you dropped in and hope that you come back soon!

“BBQ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2014

The staff were exceptionally nice, my expectations were high! The name says "Championship BBQ". Well it was good but it wasn't the amazing food I had been looking forward too.

We went out of our way to go here, it was also a bit hard to find because GPS takes you down the road and the signs for the restaurant aren't easy to see from the road.

TimeTraveler,
It is hard to know just exactly what your expectations were. To put it a little differently, I guess I need to know what your point of reference on BBQ is, especially coming from NYC...perhaps not exactly a BBQ mecca.

Indeed we are a little hard to find, but we can always guide you in if you call. It seems that the GPS on smart phones get updated more regularly than GPS in cars.

Thanks for coming and give us a try again!

“Best BBQ ever!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2014

By far the best BBQ we have ever eaten. Just a hole in the wall joint in a strip mall. We got there an hour before they opened for dinner (they close for a couple of hours between lunch and dinner) and just sat in the car and waited. Sure glad we did. Well worth the wait! The waitresses were super friendly and even gave us info on things to do in the area.

Kerry,
Right on...when you call us a hole in the wall joint in a strip mall. Our definition is a little different. We call our restaurant a "model" restaurant...a replica of the real thing. We may be small, but we like to think we are mighty...(like the mouse!)

“Great BBQ Joint”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2014

Wiley's is a small restaurant on the way to Tybee Island from Savannah. We ate there for lunch on a Tuesday, and we were very pleased with the food and service. We had fried green tomatoes, pulled pork, collards and Brunswick stew. This place is a solid 5! The pork was melt-in-your-mouth tender and very tasty. The Brunswick stew was the meatiest I've ever had. My only complaint, and this is just my personal preference, is that the collards were too sweet. The fried green tomatoes had a thick tasty batter. I recommend Wiley's and will eat there again.

Flagene,
We are so glad you enjoyed your visit. Yes, our collards are a bit sweet (we add some honey) but I understand about personal preference and that is ok :-)

Hope to see you again soon!

“Outstanding!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2014 via mobile

Just ate at Wiley's. the ribs were spectacular!! We have been trying to find this little GEM for 2 days!!! Last night we never could find it..but tonight we tried again and it was worth the two days!! We travel all over the world and have tried ribs and BBQ in other places but none that compare to these!! You must go!! have patience finding it..it's in a very small strip mall..with a little red sign..don't use GPS...it tells u the wrong way..it's right on hwy 80...on a front street...talk to the girls at the counter..very sweet and a lot of fun...they will make your dining experience the best BBQ you'll ever have!! The trick I found to find it is call their number..they will walk you through the directions...ENJOY!!! And tell them the couple from California sent you...

Charmyers,
We heard a funny story from our waitstaff that another restaurant (across the street) told you they didn't know where we were located. Janet and I applaud you for your persistence. Our employees are all locals and can direct you in by phone...even if it takes a couple of calls. Sorry about your misdirection and we hope the California couple returns soon!
