Best meal in Savannah- Mrs. Wilkes Boarding House

I went here the day after Thanksgiving, after a disappointing meal at Bubba's Oyster House (Paula Deen's other, less popular restaurant). You have to get here early because they're only open M-F and only for lunch. They serve family style and let people in as you get there to fill up the tables.

I grew up in Florida and have eaten alot of Southern food before and this was BY FAR THE BEST MEAL I HAVE EVER HAD. It might have been that we were in the first seating, but the piping hot food was there waiting for us at the table. Tables seat approximately 8 people. I should have taken a picture, though I counted and there were over 20 different plates of food there. Delicious and moist fried chicken, spare ribs, collards, macaroni and cheese, cornbread casserole, squash-- I could go on. The only disappointing thing was that I didn't have more room in my belly. It was so so good. I think the price was about $16 pp- which was a bargain!

Check it out if you go to Savannah- it's worth the trip!
