America's Classics: Weaver D’s, Athens, GA

Weaver D's Each year at the Beard Awards, we give out a handful of special honors called America’s Classics. A wide range of restaurants have been recognized as America’s Classics, from steakhouses to clam shacks, but the common thread is that they each have a timeless appeal—and are renowned in their regions for serving quality food that reflects the character of their community. Owned by the self-proclaimed “Professor of Soul” Dexter Weaver, Weaver D’s is a fixture in Athens, Georgia. Beloved for its traditional soul food as well as its colorful proprietor, Weaver D’s keeps locals and tourists coming back for spot-on fried chicken, sweet potato casserole, buttermilk cornbread, and the restaurant’s signature squash casserole. Learn more about America’s Classics and watch a video about Weaver D’s here.
