Sol is really good for their drinks, my boyfriend and I always get the cucumber batida (sp?) cocktail. My favourite things on their menu are their fish tacos and fried avocado bites. My boyfriend loves the skirt steak salad on wilted romaine with bleu cheese crumbles. Unfortunately the service is spotty. Sometimes the waiters are attentive, but more often than not you'll be waiting. Overall, we like to go in the summer to cool off and unwind with a yummy cocktail or two.

The beef ribs and mac n cheese were super. Greens weren't as good, but they definitely passed. Nice interior, friendly staff and great food.

We wanted to go to Angel's BBQ, but it was closed, so we settled on Blowin' Smoke Barbecue. While the service was very good, we were less than overwhelmed with the barbecue. My wife had the pulled pork with fried okra and I had the brisket with potato salad. While good, it was not the best barbecue we have had. In fact, the sides were better than the meat. I guess it is a "Georgia thing," but I missed having onions and dill pickles being served with my "Q." Would we return: Probably not.

My wife and I ate at Blowin' Smoke BBQ in Savannah; we found this establishment clean and the service friendly and efficient. In addition to a comprehensive menu, the place had an excellent selection of beers. My wife had a pulled pork sandwich with fried okra which she said was exceptional. I had a BBQ beef platter with potato salad and baked beans. The meat was tender, the sauce pleasing, and the potato salad was fresh and wonderful. I have much more experience with Texas BBQ; as such, I was surprised when I was served that my platter it did not have a piece of onion and some dill pickles on it. Despite this, I found my trip to Blowin' Smoke BBQ to be a good dining experience. I would be inclined to return.
