Next on Dad's trip was Savannah. Josh and I went there for Thanksgiving last year, we both commented how my Dad and one of Josh's brothers would love it. So I decided to take Dad for a day.
Dad read EVERY plaque he could find. I had a walking tour book and dramatically read it aloud while we walked around.
Dad and I both have a love for pralines, we found a "fabulous find." They were amazing. While we were walking around on our tour a local man stopped us and asked if he could help us. (I guess we looked a little lost, stopping and reading every plaque and me dramatically reading aloud, I can't imagine what gave him that clue) He told us no matter what we did for the day we had to eat at Mrs Wilkes.
The line outside we stood in for TWO HOURS to eat at Mrs. Wilkes.
The menu taped on the door. You walk in sit with ten people who were around you in line at an already set table.
Now, think of every southern food you can imagine....
Fried Chicken, Sausage, Beef Stew, Meat Loaf, Cabbage, Snap Peas, Macaroni & Cheese, Butter Beans, Black-eyed Peas, Rutabega, Squash, Rice & Gravy, Mashed Potatoes, Candied Yams, Pickled Beets, Red Rice, Collard Greens, Okra & Tomatoes, Brown Rice, Potato Salad, Apple Salad, Macaroni Salad, English Peas & Noodles, Baked Beans, Cole Slaw *Seasonal Menu subject to change. Not all items available every day'
That is what their website says is on the table, along with sweet tea
Our table didn't even put a dent in all the food. When everyone finished (which was cut a little short by two people not knowing the cardinal rule when in public, no talking about religion or politics) we all took our plates to the dishwasher, paid, and rolled out of the place. Totally worth the line! Everyone should go!
Until next time Savannah!!!
snapchat fun for day 3
