I was born in Savannah and left when I was 18 months old. 54 years later I took a trip with my wife and the first place we stopped at was Sisters of the New South. Service was great, asked if we wanted to wait for fresh chicken. I loved the mashed potatoes with the pork chop gravy. Portions were large and loved the leftovers we ate t ... read more

Food was good, but place is dirty..

Food was not very appealing looking. Building had a funny smell. Out of mac and cheese. Will not dine there ever again.

The oxtails are terrific
We make a point to stop by Sisters of the New South when we are in Savannah. (Not sure why TripAdvisor calls this "Sisters" rather than "Sisters of the New South." I had trouble finding it on TripAdvisor to review, but the sign in on TripAdvisor clearly says "Sisters of the New South." TripAdvisor kept bringing up the one ... read more

I liked this place. The ox tails are really good. So are the stewed tomatoes and okra. I would skip the mac and cheese though.

The fried chicken was very good, moist inside and delicious. It came with green beans, rice and macaroni with cheese, all home made!

Food was decent, but there are other better southern food options in Savannah.

The food here is delicious. Kenny was very friendly and gave us big portions. There is a nice sitting area if you want to eat in.
Kim Barnes via - Sep 26, 2020
I really enjoy the food here although I get the same thing every time (hamburger steak, macaroni and cheese, cabbage). I wish it didn't cost as much but regardless when I go it's a treat. Owner Kenny is always so nice to me and pleasant to talk to. Keep up the good work!

The peach cobbler is DELICIOUS!!!!! The first taste to cobbler had me dancing!!!! I ordered ox tails, sweet potatoes, collards, and lima beans. Collards taste homemade like grandma's big greens pot is on the stove! Sweet potatoes definitely didn't come out of a can, were sliced, and seasoned to perfection! Lima beans were great! Even ... read more

I read the mixed reviews on here. I always like to judge for myself. I went early opening hrs in the morning so I would get the best experience. I appreciate that this is a black owned resturant (and I apologize if I'm incorrect but I think it might also be veteran owned too). I encountered politeness from the staff. The ppl buying ... read more

Decided to try this place out after a long day while on vacation. First, I will say we had it delivered and we were so pleased with how quick it came and the food was still hot n fresh. Secondly and mostly importantly, this has been my favorite culinary experience so far. I’m not sure how this place doesn’t have at least 4.5 rating ... read more

Customer service was good, the red & white velvet cakes were great. But the Oxtails, macaroni & cheese, pork chops were terrible. The oxtails were not soft and not well-seasoned. The macaroni & cheese tasted like noodles with just cheese thrown on them, and had no seasoning. The smothered pork chops were thin and just not good. I wis ... read more

Absolutely delicious! Had the smothered pork chops. Large portions. Collards greens are fantastic. The chop steak was more like a smoked meatloaf, moist and full of flavor! Friendly staff. Reasonable prices. A definite hidden gem. Will be back. Soon!

We ordered fried chicken meal for the family. I gave a 3 star rating, because the sides we got with our meal were mediocre. The sides were the green beans and mac n' cheese; the beans were bland and the mac n' cheese was dry and not well seasoned. However, the fried chicken was crispy and perfectly seasoned! The fried chicken was ... read more

Tasty Southern food! Phoned it in and served fresh!
Venessa Sims via - Jul 26, 2020
I am shocked at the bad reviews I read from this place. I chose it because it was ranked one of the best savannah soul/comfort foods by several publications. I've had a week of seafood and frankly I'm tired of it. This was the BEST FOOD we've had all week. I cannot explain the flavor but it was rich and delightful. I had the pork cho ... read more
