Savannah Eats - BBQ, Fried Chicken Requests

Hey All,

Coming to Savannah for a couple days next week. I've already got a bit of a head start looking around and searching this board, but I'm wondering if I could get a bit more specific help.

I'm looking for:

1. A Fried Chicken joint. Any place that serves stellar bird? I'm looking for the most authentic, down home kinda place.

2. BBQ: I've heard Walls is the place the locals in the know go. Is it really all that? I've also heard things about the Pink Pig (sp) and Johnny Harris.

3. Southern/Soul Food: I'm trying to convince my traveling partners that a dinner at Mrs. Wilke's Boarding House would be once in a lifetime, but they're uncomfortable about the intimacy of the setting. Can anyone tell me if it's worth dragging them in? Will they be converted by meal's end? Are there other, better places? If we do go to Wilke's, how long in advance do I need to make a res?

4. Beer spot - Someplace with homebrew or a great selection. Any breweries in town that are good? Does Moon River make good beer? Does Old Savannah Brewing Co do tours?

Any other suggestions along these lines are very welcome!
