Our 7 Favorite Budget Eats in Savannah

Eating well in Savannah doesn’t mean forgoing other aspects of your trip. The city is home to a plethora of restaurants offering fresh, delicious meals at very reasonable prices. Savor everything from classic, go-to meals like pizza, to BBQ, to traditional down-home meals – all on your budget.

Discover our top 7 budget eats in Savannah:

1. Vinnie Van Go-Go’s

We can’t have a ‘best of’ list that doesn’t include pizza, and not only is pizza a crowd pleaser every time, but it’s also a great option for budget-conscious travelers. In Savannah, Vinnie Van Go-Go’s in City Market is the go-to pizza joint for fresh, hearty pizza.

2. Mrs. Wilkes’ Dining Room.

From fresh fried chicken, cornbread, and sweet potato souffle, to biscuits, okra gumbo, and other fine southern delights, Mrs. Wilkes’ Dining Room is a must-see (or, taste). Dine here and you’re sure to make some new friends, as you break bread and enjoy the special pleasure of a meal shared with neighbors and strangers at one of the large dining tables.

3. Sweet Spice.

For a taste of the Caribbean, head to Sweet Spice! Enjoy beef ribs, oxtails, plantains, rice, peas, and other palate-pleasing dishes in true Jamaican style.

4. StingRay’s Seafood.

A casual eatery with a laid-back vibe, StingRay’s offers indoor and outdoor seating in addition to a mouthwatering menu chock-full of fresh, local catches. Indulge in a seafood feast, complete with snow crab, mussels, a soft shell crab sandwich, buffalo shrimp, and much more. Enjoy one of their famous margaritas and kick back as you listen to local live music!

5. Maté Factor.

A quaint cafe and bakery, Maté Factor is the perfect place to grab a cup of joe and a treat to start your day, or swing through for lunch and enjoy a range of salads, sandwiches, soups, and more. Bring a book for some people watching, or simply enjoy the sights (and smells!) of this beautiful coffeehouse.

6. Fire Street Food.

Located in the Historic District, Fire Street Food is known for being fresh, fast, and of course, affordable. Taking influence from Thai, to Japanese, to Vietnamese, and American style cuisine, you’re sure to find something to please your palate.

7. Sweet Potatoes.

Loved for their fresh, down-home cooking, Sweet Potatoes serves comfort food just like your grandmother made. From BBQ chicken, to meatloaf, fried catfish, dilled lima beans, sweet potato salad, corn pudding, and more, you’ll enjoy ample selection of mouthwatering mains and sides.

After you’ve filled up on local goodness, you’ll soon be able to enjoy a budget-friendly stay in our newly renovated extended stay property in Savannah.
