This is a must place to visit if you are in Savannah. Southern cooking and hospitality. Only open from 11am to 2 pm Monday thru Friday. And you need to be in line by 10 am to get in at 11.

Best in Savannah. You will have a wait in line to get in but it is worth the wait. Boarding house style service. Come Hungary and leave full.

The wait was a little over 2 hours. Savannah allows open alcohol in plastic. Get something to drink making the wait in line worth your time. Make friends with the people around you. After all, you may be seated at the same "family style" table with them. If I ever get to Savannah again, I would love to eat at... More

We enjoyed the 2 hour wait, meeting tourists out of town, and finally able to sit down for our favorite Southern meal in Savannah. Mrs. Thompson, the granddaughter of Mrs. Wilkes was very charming and shared some of the history of her grandmother. The meal was like sitting down for a delicious Thanksgiving meal. Passing a dish of delicious collard... More

This restaurant came highly recommended & did not disappoint. We went on the later side & fortunately the wait was not too long. The delicious side dishes were so numerous, it was impossible to try them all. Everyone at our table of 10 was raving about the biscuits & fried chicken. My family left very full & very impressed with... More

True southern cooking, served in a family-style dining room. This is simply the best southern cooked meal I have every enjoyed. When you arrive, the table is set with about 20 different dishes and a warm staff. Desert of Peach Cobbler is worth the visit alone. Location only open M-F 10AM-2PM, lines form early, CASH ONLY and they are closed... More

We'd heard about Mrs. Wilkes about a week before our trip and put it on our list. We tried at 10:40 the day we were in town and the line was halfway down the street already. Came back at 1:30 and it was still about half that long. But we shivered out the cold and finally got in. As others... More
