Do you wish there was somewhere you could enjoy delicious barbecue food without sitting down at a table and waiting a half hour for service? Now, there is! Savannah Smokehouse is a barbecue restaurant that opened recently. They are embracing the fast-casual concept which has you order at a counter, and then sit down to dine. This is truly the perfect spot for great barbecue without the wait -- and they also serve beer and cocktails.
Savannah Smokehouse has a rustic vibe with brick walls and a large chalkboard on one wall, depicting the details of their barbecue process and the cuts of meat they serve. There are a few televisions on the walls, and the long tables make it easy to chat with other customers and make new friends. (There are some smaller tables, too, if you prefer more privacy.)
The meats at Savannah Smokehouse are prepared in-house daily using real smoke. They hand-rub and hand-carved everything. Don't let the counter ordering setup deter you; this is real barbecue with southern flavor.
The heart of the menu is the meat plates. Served with cornbread and two sides, you can choose your meat from options like pulled pork, pulled chicken, smoked chicken, brisket, and ribs. They also offer a 2 or 3-meat combo for those with larger appetites. If you have a smaller appetite, try ordering one of the sandwiches, such as the pulled pork or pulled chicken sandwich. They're served on a brioche bun -- or you can substitute a gluten-free bun.
Even the sides at Savannah Smokehouse are amazing. Guests love the sweet potato fries, which have the perfect balance of sweetness and saltiness, and of course, the macaroni and cheese is classic. Order a draft beer or glass of wine with your meal, and enjoy!
