Savannah, GA- the food road trip continues
Savannah is definitely a food town. Everything we ate here was delicious. First up, Paula Deen’s restaurant The Lady and Sons.
There was a buffet with fried chicken, ribs, creamed corn, green beans, mac and cheese, greens, and more. Both Courtney and I went for that instead of entrees. There was a salad bar that may have had the best salad dressings I’ve ever had- poppyseed and the blue cheese. Good job Paula. Everyone is served a cheddar biscuit and a hoecake. I almost had a heart attack after the hoecake- yummy but very artery clogging. The buffet’s fried chicken, green beans, mashed potatoes, and sweet potatoes were excellent. But the mac and cheese was not good. It was the only thing at The Lady and Sons we didn’t like. The coleslaw was different, not bad, just different. The star of this meal was the creamed corn. Who knew I liked creamed corn?
After dinner we waddled back to the hotel.
The Planter’s in a boutique hotel I got for cheap on Hotwire. Saved almost $100. It in is right in the heart of historic Savannah, a very cute hotel that serves wine and cheese from 530 to 730 every night. We did partake in the wine drinking.

Riley liked the cobblestone sidewalks.

And our final meal in Savannah which was my favorite:
The Olde Pink House was right next to our hotel and was featured on the Food Network Show The Best Thing I Ever Ate. Yes- it turns out it was the best salad I ever ate.
BLT salad- fried green tomatoes, candied maple bacon, and buttermilk ranch dressing
(side of cole slaw too- Courtney and I are doing a cole slaw experiment this trip)
Go to Savannah and eat this at the The Olde Pink House Restaurant!!!
Off to Charleston, South Carolina.
