Meet Nate Shaffer. Savannah’s veritable champion of barbecue needs no introduction.
Especially to Nate Shaffer, the new owner of Wiley’s Championship Barbecue, who understands exactly how important his restaurant’s legacy is. “When he opened the doors in 2008, Clifford Wiley McCrary Jr. changed barbecue in Savannah and racked up well-deserved national awards,” says Shaffer. “I’m excited by the challenge of picking up that mantel, and by where we’ll take Wiley’s in the future.” The ownership may have changed, but Wiley’s still frequents national media, whose adulation draws diners from around the world, each seeking the sweet savoriness of Savannah’s specialty St. Louis slow-smoked ribs. wileyschampionshipbbq.com / 912.201.3259
