Savannah, Georgia- For Foodies

Savannah is a great city! It is full of history and beautiful architecture. One thing that you will not struggle with in Savannah is eating! We ate a lot!

A few places that we loved:

Vinnie Van Go Go's- We stopped here on a whim. We had been drinking all day and just decided to walk until we found some place to eat. This place was a total dive looking pizza place on the corner that had patio seating- done! We sat outside. All the servers are very alternative, lots of tattoos and piercings, needless to say, great people watching. 
In general, we LOVE pizza! We could not decide. It was choice of

Medium or Large Pizza
Pizza by the slice

Simple as that... well not quite. We decided to go with a calzone and one slice of pizza. Once we saw others eating the "slice" and realized it was about the size of a small pizza!

We chose yeungling to drink!

The pizza was great! Atmosphere was great! We would recommend this place to any Savannah traveler!

Our next stop was Paula Deen's famous restaurant The Lady and Sons . The reason that this place is so exciting is because it is first come first serve reservations, at 9:30AM! We lucked out and did not have to wait in line because it was a Thursday, however, on Saturday morning at 8:30, there was a huge line of people waiting for their chance!

We ate lunch at 1:30pm at Paula's restaurant. It was packed. The inside decor is boring, not what I expected. You had the option of the Lunch Buffet or a few choices on the menu. We decided, what the heck, lets go Buffet! OH BOY! They first serve you a roll and a PANCAKE! yes, pancake is the bread option... yum.
Then the buffet:

Fried Chicken
Mashed Potatoes
Sweet Potatoes
Collard Greens
Green Beans
Mac and Cheese
on and on and on the food choices we endless.

This was our true southern food experience. I will be honest... not that great! It was more the experience then anything. Our waitress recommended the Peach Cobbler, I got it... disappoinment!

We took a long walk after that meal!

Another Famous stop on the trip was to the Olde Pink House Restaurant. This place was recommend by our traveler book as well as our neighbors. Our neighbor had a "ghost encounter" here in the ladies restroom,so I was very scared!

The atmosphere was very cool. It is in an old house, there are over 11 different dining rooms each decorated differently. We sat in the "office" it was a small room with big leather chairs. It almost felt like the attic with wooden beams.

This was a fancier place, so we ordered a bottle of wine and relaxed, took our time. We had Shrimp and Grits for an appetizer (P.S if you have never had grits GET YOURSELF SOME GRITS they are so good)

Our meals were great! If you are looking for a historical nice meal, I would recommend the Pink House.

We had many other meals, and cocktails! Did I mention that it is legal to drink in the streets? You just order a "traveler" and they serve you a drink in a plastic cup!
