All kinds of places you can eat all over the greater Savannah area. The important thing with what we tried to do was share ten spots with you that weren’t fast food. Quite obviously you can eat any number things for under ten dollars in any number of places. The difference with our ten under ten list? If you see it here, then it’s fantastic food at a great value. With that said, here they are. Remember, this isn’t a ranking, so I will list them in no particular order. Not the order they aired in.
Lil’ Chick – Lil’ Chick is a fried chicken shack on Savannah’s Westside of town. No frills at all. Fried chicken, French fries. Chicken fingers. They are only open for lunch. Very popular with the blue collar crowd who drives around town all day. They close at 4:30pm every day.
520 Wings – These wings are some of my favorites in town. There are lots of great chicken wings in the area, but these are good enough to have won our Foodie Award for best wings 2 years in a row. The shrimp po’ boys are very good as are the philly cheese steaks. Any number of things available there for under ten dollars.
Parker’s Market on Drayton – There are 50 million Parker’s gas stations in the area, but the one downtown on Drayton is different. Anything from beer growlers to gourmet chocolate to a tuna sandwich. They do a nice job there. Late night (11pm) they put out a big time spread with fried chicken, fish, and several breakfast items. Like I said
on the show, this spot isn’t cheap, but it is good.
Al Salaam Deli – I absolutely love this place. It’s hardly a secret. Plenty of people know about this Middle Eastern gem on Habersham Street in Savannah. Try the lamb gyros, made to order with house made tzatziki sauce.
Juarez Mexican Restaurant – True story. I have eaten at Juarez more times than every other Mexican restaurant in the city -combined! I am a big fan of this place. They kinda get lost down on the end of Broughton Street, but this is good food. Lunch buffet will run you $7.49. A great deal for all you can eat.
Munchie’s BBQ -There are a number of roadside smoker BBQ spots in Savannah.All of them good. Including Munchies. John Maxwell worked at Randy’s on Wheaton Street, but is now doing his own thing on Montgomery Street at 38th. Execellent ribs. Any number of items for under $10.00. That includes the $2 “buck box” which includes 2 chicken legs and a slice of bread.
Sly’s Sliders and Frys -Sly’s was featured on our show last season. Great variety in sliders and small hot dogs. Each of them are $3. Great bites there.
Naked Dog Cafe and Reality Bites Bakery – This space is brand new at 1514 Bull Street. There have been a few things in that space next to a police precinct, none of lasted very long. How is this one different? They offer a number of sandwiches for under ten dollars. The big draw is their bakery. Their donuts are exceptional. Covered in Froot Loops cereal? How about coconut and chocolate? Go see them.
Bo Bien Hut -Bo Bien Hut is an Asian themed spot on Tybee Island. Owner/Chef Kurtis Schumm had been wanting to do something like this for a while. Chinese classics like General Tso Chicken and Fried Rice are popular. But the Vietnamese “Bahn Mi” Sandwich is a star. Piled high with marinated beef for only ten dollars.
PJ’s – PJ’s Thai is now called “PJ’s Breakfast” on the corner of Ogelthorpe and Abercorn downtown Savannah, but they still offer great deals on Thai food. There are any number of spots in town for good Thai, PJ’s is one of them.
Ms. Jean’s -Ms. Jeans is a Meat and Three spot in Rincon. Popular and very very good. They offer a number of different combos for lunch. Most of which are under ten dollars.
