I picked up a free magazine called WELL FED SAVANNAH. Inside there was a ballot to vote for the "best" soul food in town. Although not a local, I've been eating around town a lot in the past few months and had only seen one of these places and hadn't read anything about any of them. So I'm offering them up here for comment or to inspire someone to explore:
Nevaeh's Soul Food: 2705 Bull Street 912.232.3319 (NO HOURS LISTED)
Neighborhood Soul Food: 504 1/2 West 42nd Street 912.234.5081 (6AM-6PM, closed Sun)
Masada Cafe: 2301 W Bay Street 912.234.9499 (11AM-4PM on Tues/Weds, to 5pm Thurs-Sat, closed Sunday and Monday)
A Taste of Heaven: 2401 Waters Ave 912.349.6022 (NO HOURS LISTED)
Narobia's Grits and Gravy: 2019 Habersham 912.231.0563 (6AM-3pm Mon-Fri and 7AM-3pm Sat)
The Garden of Eden: 714 MLK Jr Blvd 912.349.1420 (7AM-5pm Mon-Fri, 11AM-6pm Sunday)
For those non-locals who might come across this list - make sure you call for hours. Lots of local places close variably in the late afternoon.
If anyone can recommend one of these places I'll try to squeeze in one last meal in before I head out of town.
