This is not a typical review for BFR. I took a group of middle school kids to Savannah. Our travel agent arranged for a breakfast at this popular BBQ spot. I must say that I wasn't a believer at first. But after I had those grits and a mountain of bacon...I knew this was a winner. The breakfast was amazing.... More

Best chicken strips in Savannah, hands down. Onion rings were great, cole slaw was tasty, and the red rice spiced just right. The fried shrimp was pretty good, but was a little heavier on the breading than I prefer. Wait staff was friendly and attentive without being intrusive, we appreciated that. The dining room is comfortable and the arrangement of... More

We had great food and great service. Our server was Ladon and he was one of the most personable waiters that we have ever had. He was very attentive and so very polite. Service like this is very hard to find ANYWHERE. Our food was good. We will be back.

Main course was average but it was a very large group. Shrimp and grits is fried shrimp setting on top of cold grits. I don't get it! The onion rings are legit as was the dessert. My friend had the BBQ and it looked good. I will try it again. Dessert was chocolate and carmel cake and it was outstanding

Delicious seafood and sides (the green beans taste home cooked, like Momma's). Generous portions (plenty to share) and reasonable prices! Good friendly service too!

When I started eating here, it was a basic Q and sides diner, but now it is very nice place to eat and get filled up. I usually get the large chopped pork plate with brunswick stew and fries. The Q is marvelous with bits of burnt ends and plenty of sweet meat. Their sauce is my all-time favorite, but... More
