We were exploring Savannah on a very hot, sticky day. Looked on maps for a restaurant nearby. Found Mrs. Wilkes and walked to it. Wonderful home-cooking, southern treats. Table type buffet with such a wonderful assortment of food. Go hungry! Staff was amazing!

I have never seen as many different dishes at one meal in my life. If you have a favorite dish, I am confident you will find it on your table. A word of caution: bring cash, they do not accept credit cards.

Depends on the party size as it’s family style dining. You may end up at a table with other people but the wait for us (party of 2) was maybe 30-40 minutes. But worth every minute.
