chickenplucker-
So glad to read that you enjoyed Ivery's as much as you did.  My favorites were the vegetables, of which they had a large selection.  I don't remember seeing beef liver on the buffet, but it has been a while.  Any thoughts to writing a review?
 
And how great was it to see Michael Stern write such a glowing review for Honey From a Rock!

What they call “corn fritters” at the Honey from the Rock Cafe looks like what is called lace cornbread or lacy cornbread in other parts of Georgia.  Lace cornbread can be used to make collard green sandwiches. I’ll bet Michael Stern never had one of those either.

It was a rush to see the review by Mr. Stern and he even mentioned my little area thread. I plan to write a review of Ivery's very soon. I probably will stop in and do a little "research" today.

Excellent!  And you know I will have some photos to contribute, also.

A few months ago I ate at the Dutch House Restaurant and Bakery in Wrens. I thought it was worthy of being put in the Roadfood database. I took some good photos and have thought about trying you get it added to Roadfood. It is only about thirty miles from Augusta, so it is really in your turf. I don’t get up that way very often and have only eaten at the Dutch House once.  I would like to know your thoughts?

I only live 15 miles or do from The Little Dutch House. I have eaten there often and think it would be a worthy addition. If you write a review I may add some pics to it. Were you able to taste anything from the bakery? The apple fritters and cinnamon rolls are incredible. You can hardly find a parking spot in the morning.

I was going to make you the same offer. I took several photos at the Dutch House including a good picture of the brownie pie,  as well as the chilled pies in the cooler, a plate with fried chicken, etc.

If you would be willing to do a write-up, I could add some or all of the photos that I took.  They are of good quality, so there would be plenty of photos for your review. Since I have been there only once, I wouldn’t know what to write. I just remember the fried chicken and sweet potato souffle were really good.

I didn’t get anything from the bakery since I bought some brownie pie packaged to-go.

Just wanted to leave a teaser pic of new find in Augusta. They put a thin layer of crumbled fresh cooked skins on top of the pork. Its almost like tasting pork candy with the sauce mixed in. More to come on this gem.

Finally made it back for a follow up meal at Perry's Pig which is located at 1957 Old Savannah RD in Augusta. Way off the beaten path in an older area of town. Wrecking yards and used auto parts places make up most of the other close by businesses. Perry's is still run by the son of the original owner and they do a really good job with a BBQ only menu.

There isn't a dining room but they have 1 small table in the vestibule where orders are placed plus a couple of outside bars where its possible to stand and eat. Most of the orders are to go.

Now to the good part. Dinners come with hash over rice plus 2 sides. The hash is very similar to most in this area of GA/SC. I could make a meal out of the hash and rice. My dads beans and cole slaw were good but probably not homemade. He had the pulled pork with sauce and pork skins on top. Like I mentioned earlier the skins with the sauce almost taste like eating pork candy. I will be ordering this many times to come.

I had the Spare Rib dinner with my sides being Mac & Cheese and Collard Greens. The Mac & Cheese was the baked variety which is my favorite. Collard Greens are another favorite side and these were cooked with bits of pork for flavor. Very good. The spare ribs were very tender and needed a little coaxing to pull from the bone which is how I like them. There are 2 very similar sauces available. A hot and mild version of a slightly sweet tomato based sauce. There isn't a lot of difference in the 2 actually.

Everything looks terrific chickenplucker!  Wish I had known about it when I was in the area last year.

The food at Perry's Pig looks so good! l would definitely like to try it, but would have to find someplace with picnic tables to eat it. Otherwise I would make a big mess in the car, ha!

Chickenplucker, I did get a review approved for the Dutch House Restaurant in Wrens. We ate there last Friday. The catfish and hushpuppies were a winner. If you can add any new photos or comments about the Dutch House, that would be a good thing. There are too many desserts to try, but I loved the cherry and pineapple cream cheese rolls. I wanted to try the apple fritters, but they did not have any.

Southern Fried I enjoyed your review of the Dutch House. You make me want to run up there for lunch. I love the roast beef and gravy.

Another visit to Ivery's in Thomson,GA for lunch. What says southern soul food buffet on Friday better than fried mullet? Maybe hush puppies,cabbage,turnips,broccoli casserole, and peach cobbler. I need to write that review soon.

Re: Augusta,Georgia just aint no place to be... 2015/09/04 10:16:35 (permalink) ☄ Helpfulby Michael Stern 2015/09/04 10:39:53
Time to kickstart this thread a little. I recently made my 2nd visit to Dennis BBQ in Hephzibah which is a suburb of Augusta.  http://www.dennisbbq.com/
 
Located just off Tobacco Road not far from the back gate of FT. Gordon, Dennis BBQ is a treat. Mr Dennis cooks on a homemade cinder block pit with a mix of wood and coal. I had the pork and chicken on both visits. While the pork is very good with a nice smoky flavor I would prefer it not chopped quite as small as it is. The star for me so far is the chicken. They offer regular BBQed and a Jerk version. Both are really good and work perfectly with all 3 versions of the mustard based sauces. On both visits the chicken was cooked to perfection. Augusta is in the area of Georgia that will serve hash or stew with rice or without. The hash over rice here is a good one especially if you add a little of the hot BBQ sauce. Mac&Cheese was tasty and the collards I ordered on my 1st visit were especially good.
 
3 Meat combo with Pork,BBQ chicken and Jerk chicken.

3 varieties of mustard sauce. Pay close attention to the bottle as the heat intensifies a lot from mild to extra hot.

 
I love seeing a wood pile in the parking lot.

Wood piles and grease running down the stack are always good signs.
