This humble little restaurant is Huey’s on the River in Savannah, Georgia (photo credit given to flickr.com because I forgot to take my own picture from the outside!) My family and I were hungry and looking for a good lunch spot on a hot day in June. We’d had many recommendations for other places to eat in Savannah, but they were either out of our price range or the wait was too long. This place was almost easy to miss as you pass by, but I happened to check out the menu taped to the door, and I was sold! They have a wide selection of authentic cajun dishes, as well as a plethora of seafood entrees.
Mister Spice opted for a fried oyster po-boy and sweet potato fries…the look of sheer happiness on his face made it obvious that it was a darn good choice!
My dad ordered classic gumbo which had juicy pieces of chicken, andouille sausage, shrimp, okra, and tomatoes in a dark roux over rice. Dad absolutely raved about the sauce, and when he got full towards the end of the bowl, he ended up ditching the meat and sopping up the sauce with the bread.
Mom ordered the daily special, which was blackened tilapia with red beans and rice. She isn’t even a huge fan of fish, but this was so mild and flavorful she ate every bite!
I got the fried catfish, and it was delightful! I’m like my mom; fish isn’t really my thing. It has to be a very mild white fish and super crispy, and this huge piece of fish was just that!
I mean, look at that! Flaky on the inside but crispy on the outside…it was better than any piece of fried chicken I’ve ever had! I didn’t even touch the bread or the fries because I was stuffing my face with the fish!
We ended the meal with a serving of warm beignets…words cannot even describe how sweet they were as they melted in our mouths!
Not only was the food so incredible, it was affordable! Also, our service was great. Huey’s gets a definite 5/5 herbs!
