I eat here every time I visit.I like the fried chicken,squash casserole & fried corn. It is not fancy but the food is home made. You also get a corn muffin. They have other things besides chicken and a choice of several sides.

We found this place by accident and it was a great find! Some of the best fried chicken I've ever had -- light and not greasy and fried to perfection. We enjoyed the vegetable sides too.

My son is a student at UGA and has found a new favorite local restaurant with Weaver D's. I'm happy to know he's getting some good home cooking while he's away at school!
