“Good people, good food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2014

Sisters does a great job representing the South,and the great cuisine that shows our heritage. They load your plate; generous with the servings. The staff are all very friendly and helpful, and our waitress was a very sweet girl who took good care of us;making sure we had everything we needed, to enjoy our meal.
We had fried chicken(so good!), oxtails, lima beans(best ever!) and mac n cheese, and enjoyed it all. I also chose dressing, which I did not care for as much as the other sides. Get there before 3pm, as they ran out of cornbread,and we were told it was baking, then told they were not making any more. We did get two small,skinny pieces, but think it would've been more enjoyable if we had gotten thicker pieces, as the flavor was definitely there. There are so many great choices here,and they all looked good, as you choose from the steam table,and can see the food, which can help you decide what to enjoy.
I do wish we had gotten the banana pudding. The 3 layer cake we ordered was a bit of a disappointment. The top layer, red velvet, was great; with perfect cream cheese frosting. However, as you progress through the chocolate layer, to the vanilla layer, they layers got more dry, and there was no flavor. It seemed as though the last two layers may have been baked and frozen, and that caused them to be dry. It was just not the best choice of dessert, but it didn't mar our good experience here.
We will definitely head to Sisters every time we are near one of their locations!

“Down Home Southern Cooking”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2014 via mobile

Sisters knows how to do it right! I had fried shrimp, collard greens, sweet potatoes, dressing, cornbread, and sweet tea. My fiance had baked chicken, collard greens, red rice, macaroni and cheese, cornbread, and apple cobbler. It was all delicious!

“Soul Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2014

Best soul food I've had in a while. I had the oxtail, yams, collard greens, macaroni and cheese,and red velvet cake. The oxtail needed just a little more salt and pepper but everything else was really great. They make red velvet cake how it should be made btw :-)

“Really Small BUT Food is Plentiful”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2014

We had read the reviews on Trip Advisor and were going to be in this area around dinner so decided to give it a try. It was much smaller than I envisioned and you will pass it if you aren’t looking for it. This is not a fancy place at all but the food is good. Not a lot of parking but we did find a place. It is in a very small strip center on the end. The food is buffet style and the staff wasn’t overly friendly and we had to ask how to order. There are lots of choices of sides and entrees and they serve hefty portions. One of us got baked chicken, yellow rice and green beans which all were delicious. The other ordered a grilled Tilapia. This had to be cooked so he started on his okra and rice and was almost finished before the fish ever arrived. It also was good and guess that’s the wait for freshly cooked. All in all really good value for the amount of food and all was delicious.

“Very good.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2014

We went to Sisters on Mall Blvd. We were greeted warmly when we walked in, and it only got better from there. Our server was very nice and helpful. We ordered 2 meals. Each comes with three sides. We had fried chicken, smothered pork chops, greens, Lima beans and rice, squash, dressing, mashed potatoes and gravy. It also came with corn bread. Everything was good. Other reviews stated there was a steam table or food behind glass. At this location, we had menus with many choices. Everything came to us hot and yummy. We've added it to our Savannah favorite list.
