We were traveling north from Florida and had just pulled off I-95 after 8 hours on the road. Having checked into our hotel we anticipated just breaking out some items brought from home to eat in and crash for the night. BUT, then I made the pleasant mistake of deciding to Google area restaurants just for the heck of it. The reviews for Gwen & Franny's "screamed": eat here and now! Hardeeville has limited offerings but this spot is truly worth a visit. How could we pass through the south without some real southern cooking?? Gwen & Franny's fit the bill and then some. As others have professed, the fried chicken is wonderful. The mac & cheese was equally so. An accompanying order of mashed potatoes with gravy was delicious too. And I made sure to top it all off with some peach cobbler. It did nothing positive for my chloesterol level...but, who the heck cared...it was truly a memorable local southern cooking meal!!
