Always a favorite when we visit Savannah! Tender tasty pulled pork. Baked beans to die for. Tender well seasoned collard greens. But don't wait to late to get your order in; sandfly closes when the food is sold out!

Whenever I travel the country, I try to eat where the locals eat, rather than where the tourists eat. Sandfly BBQ is the place where the locals eat. The shop is small as is the seating. The staff are very friendly and will bring the food to your table. I recommend to eat during the early dinner hours, as they... More

This is a favorite of locals. A good part of their business is takeout, but they do have a small eat-in area. We arrived around 6:30 pm. and they had sold out of the chicken and ribs. We had the sausage and it was very tasty and not overly spicy. The pulled pork and brisket were good as well.

Sandfly BBQ does have a truck on a street in the historic district, but its real home is here in an outback mall on the southeast side of Savannah. The BBQ is delicious with a variety of meats and three sauces either on Texas toast or a platter. Tasty and succulent the way that smoked meat should taste, the main... More

This place was in a little Mall. 4 ribs, collard greens,mac and cheese,cole slaw and fried bread.BBQ was a destination for me and this did not disappoint.I was stuffed on these 4 ribs (the Meat fell off the bone) and the side(they also have beer).There were all kinds of sauces for the meat but none was needed.

I don't eat meat. But everyone I travel with are BBQ addicts. This was our first stop in Savannah. The vegetable plate is out of this world. That meat smells really good, too. Don't miss!
