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 […]

Malson’s Original World Famous Bar-B-Q – Kingsland, GA

Heading south from Brunswick back to the Jacksonville airport down I-95, we were looking for a spot for dinner.  I’d originally Googled and found a place called Willi Jewels Old School Barbecue in Kingsland, and we were heading in that direction.  As we headed east on State 40 my co-pilot said, “there’s a barbecue place […]

Rusty Pig Barbecue – Glenn, GA

On the journey to south Georgia that brought us to the fabulous sign in my header (at the Dairy Ranch in Jesup), my original plan was to eat at the Rusty Pig in  Glennville.  I won’t recant the challenge here, but as you can read in that review, we couldn’t find it.  As we were […]

Barbara Jean’s – St Simons Island, GA

We’ve been traveling to St. Simons Island since the mid 90s. My boss had a place on the island for several years back when we were young marrieds with young kids and he would let us stay there during the summer. Back then, Barbara Jean’s always seemed like such an upscale place, down in the […]

Sal’s Neighborhood Pizzeria – St. Simons Island, GA

The last time that I was in Brunswick, someone asked me if I had been to Sal’s Neighborhood Pizza on St Simons Island yet. Then MLE reported on it, during their last southeast Georgia swing.  As we were in coastal Georgia, with a down-time day at the beach, I knew what we were going to […]

Rocks on the River – Savannah, GA

As we were looking for a nice place for dinner, Jo was Facebooking with one of her friends about Savannah.  I heard what was written and thought that her friend suggested that we eat at Rocks on the River (in the Grand Bohemian).  I booked reservations and was feeling pretty good about myself.  As we […]

B Tillman (at Byrd Cookie Company) – Savannah, GA

Trolling Open Table looking for a place for lunch, one of the spots that came up was B Tillman.  From the urbanspoon page, I followed a link to a review in Connect Savannah about the recently revamped restaurant at Byrd Cookie Company.  They said that it was the “most cosmopolitan dining experience south of Derenne […]

Bonna Bella Yacht Club – Savannah, GA

Looking on UrbanSpoon for a seafood place for dinner, Bonna Bella Yacht Club appeared.  The ratings weren’t quite what I’d have liked (just under 90% positive with just under 100 reviews), but it looked like it would be a decent place to get some seafood.  We headed down into south Savannah, winding our way through […]

B J’s Original Bar-B-Que “Hog Wild” – Jesup, GA

What an appropriate question!  After an afternoon meeting in Jesup, I was heading back towards Savannah when I passed the barbecue place that I hadn’t seen until AFTER lunch.  Since it had been almost three hours since I’d last eaten, I thought it would likely be okay to stop for a snack.  When I walked […]
