The Lady and Sons

I'm in the process of creating a new worship background website and was in Savannah this week to take some photos.

I've been to Savannah twice before and have tried to eat in the famed "
The Lady and Sons" restaurant with no luck. The place is so crazy crowded all the time you simply can't get in. There's like a 3 hour wait.

One trip I thought, "well I'll eat late and go there about 3 o'clock." I was turned away - they were booked for the rest of the day!

Thankfully nobody's in Savannah this time of year, plus the local college hadn't started yet, so my buddy Kevin and I got in with only a 15 minute wait. What a thrill - I told the waitress it was finally a privilege and honor to be a guest.

And it was worth the wait. The place is in a unique 3-story building. We ate on the third story and took an elevator to our table. Each floor is sort of like a separate restaurant with its own buffet.

You can order from a menu but skip it and get the buffet. It's the finest southern cardiac cookin cuisine you'll ever eat.

And the bread... a delicious cheese biscuit and cornbread that looked like a pancake. Pour some syrup on it.

The only sad part of the meal was the dessert. Instead of being on the buffet, the waitress brings out 3 choices in teenie little bowls: a scrawny piece of cake, a molecule of banana pudding or a teaspoon of peach cobbler. The worst part is that it's all on the tray for you to drool over but you can have only one. What's up with that?
