Not only were the customers friendly but the BBQ was excellent! We got some to go and it was yummy! I like the different sauces but the vinegar was my favorite!

“Best BBQ in the Area”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 April 2014

Great little BBQ spot. Pulled pork is out of this world. Small seating area, usually always full. On weekends it's wait in line for food - but well worth the wait. The place for BBQ in Hiawassee.

“Good job TA and Happy Hawg”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 March 2014

It's not often you see a BBQ restaurant as the #1 rated place in a town. At the moment that is the case for the Happy Hawg and it peaked my interest. After today's lunch I agree that they do a very good job and I look forward to going back and trying more. We had the pork plates and sandwiches with various sides were very good. The selections of sauces was good but my personal favorite is to mix their sweet sauce with some of their hot sauce. I like my sauce sweet with a little kick. :)

“BBQ done right”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 March 2014

Was in Hiawasse for the 1st time over the weekend and we stopped by here. By far the best BBQ I have ever ate. The sides are delicious also. We ate there twice. 1st day I had turkey on slider style buns with carolina style sauce. It was delicious. And on the second visit had pulled pork sandwich with sweet sauce. Very good food and sides. The portions are huge. Cant wait to visit again real soon. The staff was very friendly and the atmosphere makes you feel right at home. If you anywhere close dont miss out on this great food.
