Wiley's Championship BBQ is the "Home of Fine Swine Dining"

Dine like a champ at Wiley’s Championship BBQ. This highly decorated BBQ joint serves up gold on a plate, leaving every customer with a taste of savory St. Louis style barbecue and a side of sweet victory.

Having begun his barbecue career out of Atlanta as a caterer in 1983, Wiley McCrary opened his namesake restaurant in 2008. Prior to opening Wiley’s Championship BBQ, McCrary battled in competitions nation-wide, culminating an impressive body of awards with his craft. While competing bred credibility and thrill, opening his restaurant in Savannah, GA was McCrary’s dream.

All are welcome; however, these days a pump of hand sanitizer is required upon entry. When they aren’t catering for front line workers and volunteers, Wiley’s is firmly adhering to Health Department guidelines with limited indoor and outdoor seating, disposable cutlery and menus, online and phone ordering, and dedicated takeout service. Hours are Monday through Saturday 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Sunday 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Grab yourself a tantalizing BBQ sandwich in your choice of chicken, beef or pork.
