AAA Inspector Notes
Inspector Pick (Classification): Go early and go hungry! The outdoor queue builds rapidly and you won't want to wait to eat once you catch a whiff of this incredible cooking.
A line forms down the sidewalk for a seat at this Savannah institution that has been serving delicious Southern fare for more than 60 years. If the aromas wafting out of the kitchen have not sold you, the exiting guests will by telling you the food is worth the wait. A bounty of dishes like fried chicken, black-eyed peas, sweet potatoes, collards and cornbread are preset on the tables of ten, and diners pass the bowls just like at grandma's house on Thanksgiving at this family-style eatery. Insider tip: If you're waiting in the heat, there is a water jug at the head of the line where you can catch a brief respite.
