“Best BBQ Around”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2014

Living in North GA there are BBQ places EVERYWHERE! However, none of them compare to the taste or value of Happy Hawg! Great People. Excellent Service. Eat here at least once or twice a week.

“Wonderful Little BBQ Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 May 2014

Generous portions and friendly staff. Also has nice outdoor seating on the deck with a view of Lake Chatuge. This is one of our favorite spots to eat whenever we are in Hiawassee.

“Delicious BBQ, Outside Tables with a Lake View, Great Price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 May 2014

Great BBQ pork sandwiches, friendly and helpful staff, great value. We ate outside and looked at the lake (a narrow, distant view, but still, a lake view!) Recommended it to my friends who were also in the area for a conference. Good Brunswick stew, too!

“good food, good people”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 May 2014

There was steady flow of stay-in and take-out BBQ orders serviced by friendly and accomodating staff with wonderful food of either BBQ chicken, or pork. Choice of special blended sauces (or combinations) topped the choices of either platters (with two sides), or single meat orders. Either were very reasonably priced.

Not a dress-up kind of place... comfortable and friendly orders taken at the counter and delivered to your tables inside, or outside.
