Wiley’s NEW Savannah GA barbecue restaurant expansion features Wiley McCrary’s 40-year-plus collection of vintage rail posters, downtown Savannah rail aerial (circa 1891), and Atlanta Terminal Station baggage cart.

In the popular barbecue restaurant in Savannah, Georgia USA, Wiley’s Championship BBQ is enlarged to spaciously seat 60. Wiley and Janet McCrary reveal new menu and character-rich additions just in time for 2015 holiday travelers and bigger-capacity for family-and-friends dining.

During the 2015 New York City press industry event, Visit Savannah, Savannah’s tourism destination marketing firm, served and showcased Wiley’s award-winning barbecue.

In addition to great southern barbecue, the popular Savannah eatery delivers two out of three promises from a vintage rail advertising slogan: “Sleep Well, Eat Well, Enjoy Your Journey”.

“Deliciousness — stated in Wiley’s shorthand “Hot Q. Cold Brew.” — is always our number one focus. When doubling our restaurant size we’ve added spaciousness and more entertainment on the walls, including Wiley’s meaningful train memorabilia,” announces Janet McCrary, the logistics partner at the little barbecue joint on Whitemarsh Island near Savannah.

“Savannah architect Roy Ogletree brought another important layer of America’s great spirit of preservation to our project. Roy salvaged 110 year-old, heart of pine (2” thick) lumber from a home in Wilmington Island. In addition to designing the space and directing the construction, he used the hardy lumber to build his designs for the communal table, bar and beer-barrel table tops,” Janet adds. The creative idea for the table design was found on Pinterest.
