The Lady and Sons in Savannah, GA
The Lady and Sons restaurant began in 1989 as a small catering business that owner Paula Deen ran out of her home. Eventually they found a space to set up shop and the restaurant was opened in 1996. Since then The Lady and Sons has racked up an impressive resume of awards, including the 'International Meal of the Year' by USA Today.
They have recently moved locations and now have 15,000 square feet of open dining space. Their menu items are varied and feature steak, seafood, chicken, vegetarian dishes, and more. There is also a lunch and dinner buffet that serves Southern favorites like fried chicken and baked spaghetti.
After you have finished eating your amazing meal, you might want to purchase one of Paula's cookbooks so that you can attempt to make the mouth watering dishes in your own kitchen. But even if you can't quite master the great taste of this restaurant's food on your own, you can always come right back to The Lady and Sons for the real thing.
