Re: “Late night eats & where to find ‘em

Uh, I'm pretty sure Sweet Melissa's opened in, like, 2005 or 2006.

Re: “Ogeechee Meat Market: Old-school butchers bring new-breed operation to Savannah

They dont sell stock, which is really the litmus test for a butcher. And it's not a "whole animal" butcher. They are okay but really not so amazing. Price is good here, but for those of that want true, top quality, it's not relevant.

Re: “Keeping it Current on the islands

What a pity about Ele's! It used to be a place of luxury and dignity and interesting decor. It is becoming just another redneck hangout for Islanders.

Re: “'Schummthing' special on Tybee

A friend and I went by Sunday evening at 9pm and it was closed. The hours weren't posted so we thought it would be open. Have they officially re-opened yet?

Re: “Polk’s On the Go: ‘From our store to your door’

I usually order the smaller box from Polk's every other week. I've always gotten high quality produce. Polk's has the best tomatoes-I always get those! And the last 2 boxes I ordered a watermelon as an add-on and found them to be the sweetest I have ever eaten! The convenience, the locally-sourced produce at the highest quality and the selection are what makes this service as wonderful as going to a farmers market.

Re: “Craft Brew Fest Survival Guide

My husband and I are wanting to do something a little different for a vacation this year, and he came up with the idea that we go to a beer brewing festival! I agreed with him, but now I am wanting to know more about what I can expect and what I should prepare for when we go. I like the idea you gave about using the cameras on our phones to pictures of the labels of the beers we like the most, especially where my husband is picky so it will be great to remember the beers he likes! This is going to be an interesting and fun experience for us, and your advice will really help make sure we get the best out of our time at the festival!

Re: “Here's to Kevin Barry's

I drank a lot,with a a customer who had been apparently a bad one. And they refused to serve me. I didnt know he was a bad custermer I hade spent about 49.00$ there. There treated me as bad as there bad customers. I had did the Irish tradition of giving the stranger a drink. The bartenders are horrible and treated me like dirt when I asked them for water when I wanted to sober up!!! A disgusting discusting place I hope you never visit there.!!!!!!!

Re: “With food as with nations, diversity is a strength

Flacos Tacos do not serve high quality tacos. They are just average, somewhat bland tasting tacos and I cannot figure out why people keep acting like they are this super secret Mexican haven. They do serve a more authentic style Mexican taco, and maybe that's the draw. But it's NOT the taste. They taste okay. Seriously, most of Taco Bell's menu tastes better. Flacos Tacos is not more healthy than local alternatives either.

But they are very Trendy. Gulfstream interns flock there thinking they've found something new. But they haven't. They just read dumb ass reviews like this one and get tricked.
Trendy and overly positive reviews are all this place has going for it. Don't waste your time or your $$ unless you're in the area and have nothing better to do.

Re: “The Naked Dog: How would you like that dressed?

I've had the pleasure of eating and working for Jim and Patsy for the last 3 years. Delicious food, great location, especially in the spring time, and great customer service. You'll ALWAYS find one of them out there working to please your palette. Sometimes they do sliders and sandwiches as well.

Re: “Meet me at the Maté Factor

Having grown up in the Twelve Tribes and escaping myself, I'd like to thank the people who have done their homework on the cult and know what it is truly about. It is not the pretty picture they'd like you to believe. The kids there are severely abused, mentally, emotionally, and certainly physically. They are controlled by sociopathic leaders who are in it for the power and wealth that having a bunch of slaves, provides. Everyboby on the outside is given a message, conducive to what would be appealing for that particular individual to hear, in order to persuade them to join. The kids in the group are given no real education, so it makes it nearly impossible for them to leave or function on their own. The women are completely controlled by the men, and told they are nothing without them, and the men are duped into believing the have a purpose for god, when really they're there to make the cult more money. I feel it's important to know both sides to every story and not think just because something looks good or people are smiling and saying one thing, that there isn't a terrifying, painful, damaging other side to it.

Re: “The Hostess City welcomes the Windy City

Being a Chicago Native, I have to say that if you haven't had Windy City Savannah's Chicago deep dish you are missing out. It's probably the best Chicago style deep dish outside of the city itself. I'd put it up there with Gino's East. All the ingredients are from Chicago and it brings a piece of home down to Savannah. Not only does is this deep dish spot on but the other Chicago foods are exactly what good Chicago food tastes like. Big thanks to Windy City Savannah for bring a piece of home down to Savannah. If you haven't had it go get RIGHT NOW!

Re: “The Hostess City welcomes the Windy City

Growing up in Chicago you have certain expectations when it comes to deep dish pizza. I was a little skeptical when I went with my brother and family. Robert knocked it out of the park (go Cubbies). Great crust, great taste, and some old styles to wash it down. The boys in Elmwood Park would be proud. Keep up the great work Robert. I will keep making the trek from Bluffton.
