SAVANNAH, Georgia USA — Wiley and Janet are so pleased to have hosted international traveler and writer Fred Marvila of Sundaycooks, Brazil! He loves Savannah and Wiley’s Championship BBQ! We are happy to share snippets from his picture-packed, expansive article, “Falling in love with Savannah“.
Here is Senhor Marvila’s introduction. [Of course, some of the real magic of writing gets lost in a Google translation from Portugese to English. For that we apologize to Fred!]
“Savannah is one of those cities where you fall in love at first sight. Squares and nature everywhere; houses and buildings that seem to have stopped in time; that air of old that lets anyone nostalgic ; all contributed to the first capital of Georgia was considered one of the most beautiful cities in America by Condé Nast, The New York Times and other specialized media.”
Skipping to words about Wiley’s Championship BBQ, here in the preface!
“The place you can not let go when visiting Savannah is the Wiley ‘s Championship BBQ (4700 Highway 80 East Savannah, GA) . Wiley and his wife Janet are typical of the southern US barbecues since 1983 and I can say that without doubt was where I had one of the best barbecues today….”
Please, hurry back to see us for more barbecue ribs and pulled pork, Fred Marvila! [Yes, we will knowingly embarrass ourselves with this Portugese effort via Google Translate: Por favor, volte logo para nos ver para mais reforços do assado e carne de porco desfiada, Fred Marvila!]

Press Release: Award-winning Wiley’s Championship BBQ Announces Savannah Restaurant’s Expansion of Americana-rich Space, Barbecue Menu, and Brand Personality
SAVANNAH, GA (December 2, 2015) – Growth spurs one Americana-rich mom-and-pop restaurant in coastal Georgia to go against the trend. Celebrated for its award-winning slow-smoked barbecue and ribs, Wiley’s Championship BBQ’s unveiled Q4 2015 expansions in its Americana-rich restaurant space, barbecue menu, and brand personality.
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.
