Why didn’t I go to Savannah’s Southern Style Takeout before today? Who knows? It’s a little hole in the wall takeout joint on Scalp Avenue in Richland. Been there three years, apparently…but I just never stopped to get food there. Until tonight. Tonight, I picked up a rib dinner at Savannah’s, and wow, was it ever good. I got three enormous, meaty ribs, dripping with sauce…a heaping pile of potato salad…another heaping pile of turnip greens…and a slab, and I do mean slab, of sweet potato pie, still warm, for dessert. All for nine bucks total, and worth every penny. I kid you not: I sat around in a stunned daze of pure, blissful gorgery for like two hours after finishing that meal. It was incredible! I just wish I’d stopped sooner. Part of the problem was the odd hours; the place isn’t always open exactly when you want it to be. Plus, it’s a little hard to get in and out of their tiny parking lot along a very busy road. But it’s totally worth it. So the next time you get a chance, drop by Savannah’s and prepare for an awesome stomach-packing experience. Baby, you won’t be sorry! The only one who’s sorry is Wendy, who missed out because of a dentist’s appointment. In fact, I’m pretty sure I lost points for gloating about it and am losing more points by blogging about it, too…but what the hey. Savannah’s was worth it. See you soon!
