T-Rex Mex, a Delightful Surprise

Here at SavannahBest.com, we tend to feel obligated to try most newly opened eateries. After all, our regular readers expect us to keep you up on the latest nibbling news, even if it’s just another ho-hum tex-mex spot. This one, at 217 W  Broughton St., is at least a great downtown location. Well. It was love at first bite! Only a distant cousin to tex mex, and definitely not Mexican, it’s, well, T-Rex, I guess. The pork taco—soft tortilla style—proved to be a large quantity of delicious pulled pork with shredded romaine, fresh-made salsa and jack cheese. The brisket burrito was moist and tender brisket of beef rolled in a honey wheat tortilla with diced roasted poatoes, both black and pinto beans, jack cheese and fresh salsa. And there’s lots more to the menu, which we’ll dive into soon again. Most intriguing: a jerk chicken burrito, a tilapia burrito, plenty of salads and tofu dishes…and more. Try it, you’ll like it!

Thanksgiving at EOS

We can vouch for the excellence of EOS’ Thanksgiving dinners!  Went there last year for Turkey Day dinner, and were amazed to find it the all-time best turkey dinner ever!  I had only been to restaurants a very few times in decades of gobbling gobblers, all upscale fine dining establishments which left us disappointed at best.  Personally, I’d always thought my own, Gran Marnier-herb-butter-basted bird the world’s best (no modesty from me regarding turkey!), and had had many fine dinners at others’ homes, but EOS won the Grand Prize!  Here’s their line up for Thanksgiving Dinner:

Butternut squash for the first course, followed by your choice of roasted turkey with cornbread stuffing and a cranberry cream sauce, or prime rib with a horseradish jus.  All courses will be accompanied by your choice of side, and don’t forget dessert, baked apples in a puff pastry with Chantilly sauce.  Yum!

EOS will be open for only one seating at 1pm.  The cost is $30 per person with an optional wine pairing for $15 dollars extra.  To make your reservation, call 912-238-2400.

Best Fried Chicken in Savannah?!

Well, we don’t know for sure, ‘cause only one of us has tried it,  but that’s the word from one of our intrepid food scouts.  And he is for sure a devotee of good  fried chicken! Especially at affordable prices. The new Kennedy Fried Chicken, at 2201 Waters Ave.,  boasts  $3.99 for two pieces of chicken, plus can of soda and dinner roll sounds good to all of us. Plus great hours!

The Resurrection of the Old Crystal Beer Parlor

 The enlarged bar is beautiful and inviting! But beware if you’re much under 5 ft. 5  inches tall….the bar stools can be a bit uncomfortable. The renovations add an airy and lighter feel, all welcome. As to the food, let’s say they’re suffering some growing pains… The famous “Crystal Burger” is passable. Might have been better if cooked medium rare as ordered, but it came well done and dry; onion rings were delicious! Big, fat slices of onion, not overly battered –but a bit too salty. Bowl of chili was excellent. I’d have liked a bit more heat, but probably perfect for lots of folks. The so-called “Greek taco” supposedly a gyro in a pita shell, is neither Greek nor…? Pretty tasteless filling in a soggy shell. Hand cut fries were limpid. But the beer and ale selection is terrific! We’ll give the place another try after a coupe more months.
