Chris O's City Tips

  • Making dinner reservations is extremely wise.
  • Don’t be surprised if popular breakfast and lunch spots have lines out the front — a sure sign you're onto a good thing.
  • Check out the dedicated Visit Savannah website for up-to-date tips to help you make the most of your visit.
  • Savannah, or at least its historic downtown, is very walkable. Wear comfy shoes when you hit the streets.
  • Slow down and enjoy the relaxed pace of life in the Deep South.

    Angel's BBQ
    Restaurants (American, Barbecue)

    Chris O Says:

    Angel's BBQ had two slogans that just about sum the place up: 'A little taste of Heaven that's been through Hell' and 'Eat more pig!' Here you'll find melt-in-your-mouth barbecue, from slow-cooked pulled pork to tasty beef brisket.

    Tips
    • All the sauces at Angel’s are homemade. Got a fireproof palate? Try the Voo Doo Juice.
    • Don't leave without trying the collard greens with peanuts, a local favorite.

    Chris O Says:

    Back in the Day is an excellent choice for a morning treat, coffee break, or simple lunch. The motto (and the mission) at this family-run joint is 'slow down and taste the sweet life.' This is sage advice — especially considering how very sweet 'the sweet life' tastes here.

    Chris O Says:

    Savannah weather can feel balmy even in the winter, which makes it an ideal city for year-round ice cream indulgence! Founded in 1919 by three immigrant brothers from Greece, Leopold’s has been helping Savannahians keep cool for nearly a century. The parlor is still run by the same family who started it, and locals still flock here for the homemade ice cream.

    Papillote is proof of two things in Savannah's food scene: that you can enjoy fantastic French cuisine here without all the froufrou fuss that’s so often associated with it, and that you can also get a quick, filling, and affordable meal without having to resort to fast food! Yes, this quaint and friendly spot offers the best of both worlds — delicious, fast, and casual French eats. Hankering after one of the best Croque Monsieurs this side of the Atlantic? How about a crab-and-mango tartine? You'll find all that and more at Papillote.
