More Savannah Vacation: Lady & Sons Restaurant

While in Savannah, we were fortunate to be able to eat at Paula Deen’s restaurant, The Lady & Sons. VIP, no waiting in line was one of the perks of going on the Paula Deen tour as long as you called ahead to make a reservation. Apparently her restaurant is hard to get into without a reservation. Since I’m a Southern gal who loves to throw down on some Southern cookin’ ya’ll know this was on my to-do list!

OMG! It was so good! You could order off the menu but Rob and I both tried the buffet. I’m a sampler so I like to get a little (or a lot!) of everything.

 On the menu was: fried chicken, baked chicken, maple glazed pork chops, mashed potatoes, creamed corn, collards, yams, lima beans, dirty rice, and macaroni and cheese. There was also a salad bar. I skipped that and went straight for the real food. We also got ho cakes and cheesy bread and dessert with the meal. And no, a ho cake is not a derogatory term! It’s the best tasting piece of fried bread you ever put in yo’ mouth!! For dessert I had the peach cobbler, da bomb!!! The waiter told us that Paula refers to her peach cobbler as "Slap Yo Momma Peach Cobbler." Now I’m not advocating violence against yo momma but that was some good peach cobbler.

My favorites were the fried chicken, ho cakes, yams, mac and cheese, and the creamed corn. The corn wasn’t really juicy but was a little more firm. Almost casserole like in a way, yet still creamy. Maybe like it was baked but pulled out of the oven right before it got too firm. If anyone comes across Paula’s recipe for her creamed corn ya’ll let me know! I looked on the internet but didn’t find what I thought was the right one.

Check out my pics!

Me and Rob. He is so excited to be going on the tour. :)
Totally unrelated sidenote: I cut my bangs. Do they make me look weird? Not that I need help with that....

Rob and Paula. Should I be worried??

My plate of yummy goodness. You can see a corner of the ho cake on the left. Sorry that the lighting is weird...

The Lady & Sons sign. I just noticed that the top of the sign says "Hey Ya'll!"

Stay tuned for more!


  1. I would LOVE to eat at Paula's!! There is a Paula buffet in one of the casinos near us that I have heard is really good but haven't made the trip yet. Can't wait to see more pics -- and no, your bangs do not look weird --

  2. Do it! It was so good...But then again, I told Rob that it's not like Paula is actually cooking for you, ya know? It's just her recipes. Hopefully they are following them, lol.
