Sweet, simple, and seriously scrumptious Southern Cuisine. You know, when you’ve got it, you’ve got it. Sweet Potatoes [6825 Waters Ave, Savannah, GA 31406] is outside the hustle bustle of downtown, there is a great parking lot and the food is very affordably priced.
Sit down in the cheerful atmosphere, this truly is an endearing space.
Pick from an array of southern staples and other wholesome favorites. Entrees are served with two sides and a biscuit, a very filling meal. Jeff went for the peach glaze BBQ meatloaf paired with black eyed peas and green beans.
He reported that it was flavorful and moist, and I didn’t mind helping myself to his sides which were excellent. I went for the pecan encrusted catfish with tomato relish, some lemon collards and a baked sweet potato (WITH PECAN BUTTER).
I was so smitten with this meal. The dense flaky biscuits was the first thing I choked down, warm out of the oven and a perfect start. The crust on the fresh fish was excellent, and the tomato relish added quite the light and juicy component! I love all collards in Savannah, but these lemony ones were something else. The baked potato was so tender, and the pecan butter was a game changer…it was like dessert. But oh my speaking of dessert, I didn’t even realize this place was FAMOUS for their banana pudding. I’ve never had banana pudding before and this was a brutal place to start because when you start at the top…there’s no where to go but down.
This exquisite dessert had all of the right flavors and textures, our only regret was splitting it! All of this fine food came to under $30 (before tax and tip) – a real steal for a phenomenal dinner!
