Probably THE best meal I've ever had in my entire life. I can't remember all the sides at the table, but I remember the smile on my face and the wonderful people I got to meet through the experience. Highly recommend - in fact a MUST see while you're in town.Recommended for:

Mrs. Wilkes' Dining Room is a must-stop destination while traveling in Savannah. The queue is long and forms quickly, even before it opens so be sure you get here prior to 11 AM to get early seats. Also, it only opens from 11-2. Be prepared to sit in a dining table room setting with other diners. The purpose is to encourage talk with other customers. The 15+ course meal is prepared and available at your disposal. Highly recommended for any visitors coming to Savannah.Recommended for:

It’s no surprise you can find Savannah’s best mac and cheese at the city’s most popular lunch spot. In 1943, Sema Wilkes began serving traditional southern fare at her boarding house in downtown Savannah, and 70 years later patrons still line up outside of Mrs. Wilkes’ to savor home-cooked goodness like fried chicken, collard greens, and heavenly cheddar mac in a family-style atmosphere. (Even President Obama is a fan!)Recommended for:

Classic boardinghouse dining experience. Come here, sit at a large table with a bunch of strangers, and then pass around the bowls of comfort food and stuff yourself to your heart's content. Luckily, I was able to come here while Mrs. Wilkes was still alive and got to see her overseeing the place to ensure her customers all had a great time.
