“Long wait for ok food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 April 2014 via mobile

Visited at 12pm in a Saturday lunchtime - fairly busy as you might expect but not outrageously so. Service was polite but not exactly rapid. That's fine but I don't expect to then wait 45 mins for 4 BBQ sandwiches. Got the impression it was the same wait for everyone. Pork was well smoked but nothing out of the ordinary.

“Funky, Very Good Food and Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 March 2014

If you look at there photos above, it is not what many people would envision as a gourmet restaurant exterior or interior. The shelves on the rear wall have toys and games for kids. A glass meat case from a previous store is covered with white paper where children can use crayons to draw. The tables don't match,and "al fresco" seating consists of picnic tables. It is located off the beaten path in a residential neighborhood. All this adds to a very casual charm with a neat fun, funky atmosphere. The the salmon and homemade barbecue sandwiches we had were excellent as was the homemade mac and cheese. Service was very good.

“Lots of local flavor”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 February 2014

This restaurant represents all the many things I love about Athens; eclectic, casual, great food and atmosphere. I'm always looking for ways to show my kids that you shouldn't judge something (or someone) by their appearance. This was the perfect lesson! Yes, it looks a little run down on the outside but that's what makes it special, along with the excellent food. The bratwurst with grilled sweet potatoes, the salmon sandwich, chicken sandwich, it was all wonderful. Will definitely go back.

“New 'Que Review -Woo hoo!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2013

My UGA foodie son recommended we have lunch at White Tiger Gourmet. It's a yummy delight off the beaten path inside a small, non-descript, unassuming vintage neighborhood grocery store. Once inside, the menu reveals bar be que, daily specials and more prepared with a creative twist. Intentional eclectic interior - extinct grocery store meets quirky folk art and colorful yard sale. Very laid back - no frills - all food and drink served with disposable plastic ware or paper.

Here, it's all about the food. Well thought out menu and daily specials. The meat smoker was doing it's thing outside so the meat and fish is freshly smoked on site.

Some traditional 'que mostly new 'que. Bar be que on tacos, on platters, on buns. Smoked chicken sandwiches, burgers and oh so good roasted vegetable sides and vegetarian options. One daily special was a bountiful chicken "salad salad" surrounded by thin Sliced Granny Smith Apples, strawberries, cucumbers and vine ripe tomatoes. Next time, I'm trying the bar be que taco with their homemade cold slaw.

“Unique and delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2013

The food at White Tiger is sooooo delicious! It's southern food with a unique twist. Fun, local feel and outdoor seating. Great option outside of downtown and located in the Boulevard neighborhood.
