yah just okay,  food is VERY salty.   Met some nice people a lot like a sit down at an aunt's house with food just so-so.   As they move groups in/out some plates are recycled and food tasted leftover.    biscuits were good...fried chicken was room temp.  lima beans yuck.....Some type of sliced thin chicken in white sauce over noodles....no way..... beans okay (I make better food at home).    3 stars because Obama went there and it's something to do in Savannah (another story).
I rarely think it worth it to wait in line for food but this place is the exception.  We got in line at 10:30am (opens at 11am) and was seated just before noon; so probably would have been better to get there at 10am to be in the first seating.  There are probably around 7-10 tables that seat around 10 people each.  They serve family style.  Once all the tables are full at 11am, then you have to wait for them to open up.  Most all the food is on the table when you sit down so service is very fast.  There were at least 20 items on our table (items rotate except they always serve fried chicken) - fried chicken, pot roast, BBQ pork, creamed corn, butter beans, collard greens, green beans, coleslaw, steamed cabbage, rutabaga, cucumbers, okra salad, mashed potatoes, cheese grits, corn bread stuffing, rice, gravy, biscuits, sweet potato casserole, banana pudding, and peach cobbler alamode.  If we ran out of a dish, it was promptly refilled.   Everything was good.  It was a great way to try lots of local dishes.  We were lucky to have someone from the region at our table to identify all the items like the rutabaga and butter beans.  It's a fun atmosphere and a unique experience.  When you are done eating, you drop your plate off at the kitchen as a tradition.  I bought a cook book with all the family recipes, pictures and stories.  The current owner was happy to sign the book which is a nice souvenir.
After reading the reviews, I got there early. I was second on line at 9:45 on a Tuesday. The food was amazing and we met some awesome people at our table. The collard greens were the best! A must do when in Savannah!
