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!

The food is what keeps people coming back. Weaver D's serves up true soul food and in a cozy, no-frills setting. My partner got the dark chicken plate and I got a veggie plate. Don't miss the sweet potato soufflé as a side! Cornbread comes with your meal - automatic! You order at the counter and Dexter Weaver will take... More

For the sides we had mac and cheese, fried corn, potato salad, green beans and squash casserole. On the meat side we had fried porkchops, catfish and fried streak.... More

I am very lucky to live close by so I can visit any time I wish...and I come often. Good southern cooking by an award winning chef. Make sure Weaver says "automatic" for you!

Weaver D's is one of the longest serving restaurants in Athens. Its the "ultimate hole in the wall" and good meat and 3 or all veggie place around. You order your food and a server gets the food for you. Fried chicken is a hit here but I had to have the home cooked veggies and they didn't disappoint. If... More

All of the vegetables sounded good, so I had a plate of 4 and they were all fantastic as well as the cornbread. Great location near a park area and downtown, with a lot of local history.

I went to this restaurant as it famously gave it's slogan "Automatic for the People" to REM to use as the title of their album. It's much smaller than I envisaged, run by just one guy, who everyone just calls 'D' and his wife. Nearly everything is deep-fried. The menu is limited, but the service is something special. When I... More
