Our trip to Georgia the final chapter
Finally I found some good food in Georgia. Savannah doesn’t have a lot of restaurants, but it does have some good ones.
Mark is a Food Channel and Bravo Channel addict. He can sit for the whole day watching nothing but food shows. Before we left Florida all I heard from Mark was “We have ta go to Paula Deens, we just have ta” (Now imagine that line said with a high squeeky voice in a New Jersey accent.). Well Paula Deens and Sons restaurant requires you to get in line at 7:00a.m. so you can get your name on a list, so that you can wait at lunch time for your name to be called while you wait outside in the sun and heat on the street. For dinner they start lining up at noon. Meanwhile the lunch crowd is waiting across the street for their name to be called via a bull horn to be seated. All this for what I’ve been told is mediocre food. Guess what, we don't have ta.
Instead we went to a place called Wilkes Boarding House for lunch. We waited in line for twenty minutes at about 1:30 in the afternoon. Then we were brought in and seated at a large dining room table with eight other people. It was like I was invited to a strangers house for thanksgiving dinner.There was no menu. The food was already on the table in about twenty serving dishes. Fried Chicken, sweet potatoes, sausage, beef, mashed potatoes, collard greens, ect. ect. It was like eating at moms house except the food was good. When the meal was over we had to take our own plates, glasses and silverware to the kitchen. I’m glad we weren’t required to wash it too.
Also for good food we went to the Olde Pink House. They are known for their flounder, which I had and it was great.
Another fun restaurant we went to was Jazz’d Tapas. Even though there was a wild storm raging outside and the lights went out for about forty five minutes, we had a fun time and the food was good.
