Apparently, your original post got my mind spinning and my stomach growling. Haha. As a matter of fact, I mentioned that I was going to Danver's for lunch and about a dozen of us ended up there. Hopefully, that kind of business will keep them going for a while.
I had no idea that Loeb's had BBQ shacks any where other than Memphis proper. It's funny, too, that you mentioned their old signs with the pig holding up their logo. My buddy who works in construction saved one side of an old Loeb sign while they were doing some demolition work. The sign has been rewired and proudly and brightly shines in his garage. Brings back great memories. Especially when we've got a couple of slabs or a picnic in the smoker.
By the way, no apology necessary for the "rambling"; I, too, am an unabashed and hopeless roadside/old-americana/nostalgic freak!
Have a great weekend and keep posting!
Note to self: hmmmmm, if I leave Savannah right now, I might make it to Danver's in time for a late lunch.....
Thanks, T.J., for the sammich(es) in my name.
It's strange, for all the eating options we have on the Georgia coast -- and there are some wonderful places -- I have yet to find a good roast beef sandwich, good barbecue or "country" fish in these parts.
My kingdom for a Friday night artery-cloggin' AYCE fried seafood buffet within an hour's drive.
Our local "entertainment" rag's annual "best of" readers' poll chose Red Hot & Blue as best BBQ, several years running. What a vote of confidence for Savannah-style 'cue!
LOEB'S: Yes, Tupelo had one. I always thought it was a Coleman's clone -- same all-glass facade and backlit signage around the top. Loeb's left town, ohhhhh 1973-ish?
I'd love to see a pic of that rewired sign! Have a good weekend, yourself.
....stuck inside of Savannah with the Memphis blues again
