My last meal in Savannah: BBQ (1/20/09)

For my last meal in Savannah, I decided to find Angel's BBQ. I can't remember where I read about this place, but it sounded like fun.

It was slightly difficult to find, but after I gave them a call (thank god for cell phones!), I was on my way to BBQ goodness.

This little restaurant is located behind a church and resembles a mom & pop shop. My glasses fogged up as I stepped into the warmth from the outside. The decor is very homey and unassuming.








I decided to order a combination of pork and beef BBQ with mac & cheese and coleslaw. This was such a great choice! The mac & cheese was hot and cheesy; the coleslaw was mustard based and light. The meat was very tender and only required a bit of extra BBQ sauce (I chose Memphis Sweet Sauce). And I had some sweet tea (don't be jealous, Laura).




While I was eating, another customer came in. She was a food producer from England! She works with Jamie Oliver! OMG, that was so exciting. Of course I chickened out and did not give her my card...I mean, what was I supposed to say? "Hi, I love Jamie Oliver. Here's my card?"

Sigh.

And then it was time to head back to the hotel, lose my camera case (obviously unintentionally), and head back home.

This was a great weekend getaway.

I hope you have enjoyed reading my recaps. I'm planning to do some actual cooking this weekend, so check in back later.

I love BBQ so I am so jealous.

I also love Jamie Oliver, particularly his recipe for home-made pasta.

Cheers,

I'd better start looking for a great bbq place here in Birmingham. By the way "homey"?! Seriously? Are you going to start saying "shrooms" and "veggies" soon?

I can't believe you were just a couple of hours away from me!!
We love Savannah. I would have taken to my friend Cheryl's bakery "Back In The Day Bakery" where she makes the best cupcakes!

Hello, It's Aileen from Angel's BBQ. I just ran across your blog. I'm so glad you enjoyed your lunch. Jamie Oliver did end up coming into town but never stopped by our place..DARN! I did see them filming out in one of the squares but was too shy and goofy to say hello. Oh well!
