Top 10 places you have to eat when you are in Savannah..

We will be spending 5 days in Savannah and though there are the "touristy" places, where does one go to for those hidden neighborhood gems? Local 11 Ten, Vics on the River, Green Truck Pub, Pink House and
Mrs Wilkes ....should we put that on our agenda as well?

  1. Expect a long line and wait at Mrs. Wilkes (and make sure you feed the meter appropriately--at least 2 hrs) But it is worth it IMHO--the one place I always go if I can only go to one or two.

    1. I have not been in Savannah for any length of time for awhile. We plan to move back there in the near future.

      One of my childhood favorites was/is Johnny Harris'. It is a BBQ restaurant and filled with history. I cannot go near Savannah without getting a fix there. To be honest I always get pulled pork. I guess I'll branch out to other menu items when it is some place we can go at will.
