You can't miss the Barbecue Benedict. It's a signature dish for brunch, and it will keep you coming back. By far my favorite place to visit when I come to Athens! Go Pats!

I regularly go for a casual BBQ pork sandwich or the Sunday brunch. Have never left disappointed even when they ran low/out of BBQ or other ingredients.

Great food in a great environment. I enjoy their BBQ chicken, and they have a good vegetarian selection.

I had heard great things about this place and was eager to try it. There was a group of four women in my party and we each had something different. I had the grilled pimento cheese sandwich with a cup of tomato soup. The soup was amazing and I highly recommend it. The sandwich was okay, but I would not... More

Even if they are out of the BBQ, and that does happen....anything we have ever eaten there is delicious! I love the grilled cabbage in the grilled vegetables medley...and may just ask for the cabbage alone next time...yummy!

The Bar b Que sandwich reminded me of Jim & Nicks. It was good. I had quite a wait. It was near the end of lunch time very few customers still there. They were preparing call in orders people were picking up. I ordered my sandwich to go. I noticed a health inspection rating 78. It is not a place... More

If you go to White Tiger on a Saturday night, they frequently are out of menu items, like BBQ, chicken, AND salmon... because of the Friday night & Saturday lunch crowds. Friendly staff with great food but the wait for burgers this time was much longer than usual. The location in the Boulevard district is a little eclectic and fun.... More

As a frequent visitor I encourage you try this restaurant if you have not and to go more often if you have. These type of businesses are very unfortunately a dying experience in America. It is located in a residential area of Athens, and the former home of a neighborhood grocery store. It still has the old wood coolers and... More

Great tasting Vinegar based barbecue chicken platter with Mac and cheese and slaw. They also had a refreshing limeade drink that I really liked.I saw others ordering vegetarian friendly dishes that looked delicious as well which I look forward to trying next time. Great hidden gem to enjoy with friends and family:)

White Tiger's building is a 100 year old neighborhood grocery store, so expect an eccentric local dining environment with an option to eat at picnic tables outside under the trees & lights. The outside and around bathroom is another memorable time.., The BBQ sandwich is amazing, and on some nights if you order the salmon ciabatta sandwich, you'll get two... More
