When you are traveling and you get multiple recommendations from numerous people along your path to eat at a specific restaurant you tend to want to experience it just to find out if it is as promised.
Savannah Georgia in the historic district is Mrs. Wilkes Boarding House on Jones Street. We waited in line for 2 1/2 hours not knowing what we would be eating. Fortunately for me I am never bored as I love to watch people and I will talk to anybody anyplace. Mr. C was okay because he loves food and his knee couldn't walk so sitting on a bench worked well for him in this case.
Lucky for us the food was good and the company interesting. As you can see you sit family style with strangers and you pass the various plates and bowls of food. The food was more than plentiful and so much waste was really bothering us so Mr. C asked the kitchen and they give all the excess food to the shelters who feed the needy.
Unfortunately for me Mrs. Wilkes is so popular that they rush you in and out in order to accomodate the horrendous long lines of people. They only serve from 11 to 2 each week day with no service on the weekends. Our 2 1/2 hour wait was for 35 minutes of eating time. WHEW! I cannot eat that fast and definitely cannot enjoy my food experience that fast.
Well, at least we experienced Mrs. Wilkes and we found out that people from all over the South were correct that we had to eat here at least once.
