Bar-B-Q...oh boy! This mama sure does love her share of that. While in Savannah last month we stopped by Sandfly BBQ to enjoy a taste of Savannah style BBQ from owner Keith Latture. This joint in tucked away in a strip mall and sure to be missed, or so you might think. Not the case. We rolled in around lunch time on a Friday and this place was packed.
Let me tell you, Keith did not disappoint our palate. We chowed down on the hog wild platter, which literally comes with everything 🤗(pulled pork, beef brisket, chicken, smoked sausage, ribs and 2 sides (we got cole slaw & collard greens, of course). We also got the pulled pork sandwich with hand cut fries and the world famous brunswick stew!
Yep, by the time we were finished eating I was ready to have Michael roll me out to the car🙈I kept saying, "this is my last bite", then in I would go for just one more. So let's chat a little bit more about this ridiculously good bbq we ate.
Pulled pork has a sweet place in my heart. Sometimes I think I secretly find myself judging bbq spots based on their pulled pork...and of course their brisket. So naturally we had to have the pulled pork sandwich on top of the pulled pork that came with the hog wild platter. The pork was done to perfection, tender with great smoke flavor. I love being able to add the sauce I want and the amount to each bite. There are three homemade sauces to taste: their sweet Memphis style (this was my favorite), a zesty mustard-based savannah sauce (I liked this paired with the Memphis) & a spicy vinegar-based western North Carolina sauce.
The smoked chicken, beef brisket, smoked sausage & ribs were solid. The meats were smoked in a combination of pecan and hickory in house and my taste buds clearly couldn't get enough. Michael's favorite was their smoked sausage. This is definitely his go to dish and he surely wasn't wishing he chose differently.
Keith suggested we try their 'world famous brunswick stew'. To be honest up until he mentioned it I had never heard of brunswick stew (man I have been missing out). The rich smoky flavors from the meat combined in the stew broth with the vegetable was incredible! The hand cut fries were on point and shouldn't be missed. Plus we loved the collard greens which are cooked with smoked meat and oh so tender.
There's a nice selection of craft beer to choose from and I must say it all pairs nicely with the bbq! If you find yourself in Savannah you've got to make the drive to live local at this tucked away gem and eat like a local!
