On the way home from Florida, I was determined to experience some great local food. I'm a fan of "Diners, Drive-ins and Dives" on the Food Network and, as it turns out, there was a restaurant that had been featured about 15 minutes off our main route. So, we headed over a big bridge and a slightly less big causeway to St. Simon's Island, Georgia to visit Southern Soul BBQ.
The atmosphere was friendly and laid back. It felt a little more hippy than most BBQ places. Everyone was great, from the employees to the customers. The cross section of customers was amazing as well. The youngest was my infant son, the oldest was a group of 70+ folks who came in for lunch. There were bikers, yuppies, yankees (that was us), and a gentleman who was staying nearby doing some photography.
