3:00pm–5:00pm - Our first full day in Savannah
That is the phrase that pays in the historic area of Savannah, Georgia's food district. I personally came in to contact with some of the most exquisite southern-style hospitality and mouth-watering food. The menu provides typical southern fare, yet the buffet provided delicately served fried chicken, mashed potatoes, mac'n'cheese, greens, spiced okra, baked chicken, and bone-picked BBQ pork. On top of all that, we had personal servers who provided us with hoe-cakes (cornbread patties) and cheese biscuits. This wonderful food and hospitality warmed our hearts and our bellies. Personally, this made me recall all the times with my family on Sunday afternoons. I felt as if we were brought in on one of Savannah's best kept secrets and the folks in there made us feel as if we were family. This had to be one of the most genuine experiences on the entire trip.
