Last year, Southern Living’s “The South’s Best” list named Wiley’s Championship BBQ in Savannah as the best barbecue in Georgia.

“In 2008, successful caterer and competition barbecue cook Wiley McCrary opened his popular Savannah restaurant. McCrary has since passed away, but big platters of pulled pork, brisket, and smoked chicken are still the main draw today, and fans rave about the nachos — house-made potato chips loaded with pulled pork, gooey cheese, jalapeños, and tangy barbecue sauce,” the magazine wrote.

So there you have it! If you’re on the hunt for the best barbecue in the South, you’ve got two great spots to try in Georgia. What are you waiting for? Get on over to Fox Bros. Bar-B-Q or Wiley’s Championship BBQ and treat your taste buds to some finger-licking goodness!
