Duck’s Trolly – Manchester, GA

While camping in Pine Mountain with some friends, we were out roaming through all the stores in the surrounding towns.  While checking out the Meriwether County visitor center in Warm Springs, I heard someone ask the guide about Duck’s Trolly, in Manchester. “Best burger around,” was the reply.  That did it for me.  When discussions […]

Bennie’s Red Barn – Saint Simons Island, GA

Ever since our kids were small, St. Simons Island has always been a special place for our family.  As our family has grown (with the addition of two sons in law), we’ve made a Labor Day weekend tradition of renting a house and all going down for the long weekend.  There are places that we […]

Walls Barbecue Restaurant – Savannah, GA

The first time that we attempted to eat at Wall’s BBQ, it was dark and pouring down rain.  And we could not find the restaurant.  You see, it’s on one of the weird non-streets that they have in Savannah.  We kept driving around where our GPS thought it was and never saw it.  You access […]

Gary Lee’s Market – Brunswick, GA

Splendid Shabu – Pooler, GA

About two months ago, our daughter was telling us about this wonderful new place that had opened around the corner from them that was like Asian fondue.  When we were visiting today, and arrived just before lunch, she suggested that we try Splendid Shabu.  We entered a restaurant that was about half filled with tables […]

Wiley’s Championship Barbecue – Savannah, GA

When the Trip Advisor article proclaiming Georgia the new barbecue capital came out earlier this year, there were three places listed in the state that I had never heard of.  I made note of all three, and knocked one off the list the last time we were in the north Georgia mountains.  I saw that […]

Twin Oaks Drive-In – Brunswick, GA

The last time that I was in Brunswick, I mentioned looking for barbecue for dinner to the person that I was meeting with that afternoon.   He said that the best barbecue in town was at Twin Oaks, but when I Googled them, they are only open from 6:00 – 3:00, Monday – Saturday.  Needless to […]
