This is a favorite of locals. A good part of their business is takeout, but they do have a small eat-in area. We arrived around 6:30 pm. and they had sold out of the chicken and ribs. We had the sausage and it was very tasty and not overly spicy. The pulled pork and brisket were good as well.

Sandfly BBQ does have a truck on a street in the historic district, but its real home is here in an outback mall on the southeast side of Savannah.

This place was in a little Mall. 4 ribs, collard greens,mac and cheese,cole slaw and fried bread.BBQ was a destination for me and this did not disappoint.I was stuffed on these 4 ribs (the Meat fell off the bone) and the side(they also have beer).There were all kinds of sauces for the meat but none was needed.

I don't eat meat. But everyone I travel with are BBQ addicts. This was our first stop in Savannah. The vegetable plate is out of this world. That meat smells really good, too. Don't miss!

This is the best barbecue in the Southeast. It has great sauces and all the meat choices. The sides are also good with great selection.

This small restaurant isn't fancy, but their barbecue and Brunswick Stew will have you coming back again. Whether you order a plate of pork and chicken or a sandwich of some type, you will be licking your fingers and eating every bite on the plate. If the weather is nice, there are a few tables outside. The ones inside are... More

The pork sandwich today was some of the best... More

Visit the Sandfly or Savannah location for a great BBQ sandwich or plate. The ribs are meaty and delicious. Be sure to try the sides
