I finally made it to Johnny Harris Restaurant in Savannah (long on the “to do” list). It’s a big place that dates to 1924 and not a “dive,” but it still has an authentic, down home Southern atmosphere. While BBQ is the origin of the place, it has evolved into a full menu restaurant with lots of variations and combinations on the theme. I tried the fried chicken and ‘cue combination and it was the chicken that was the standout–crispy, moist, and with a little spice. The pork bbq was good (with a tomato/vinegar sauce) and full of chunks of solid meat. The desserts were fabulous especially the coconut cream pie–gooey and full of coconut with a flaky crust. Overall worth the side trip.
