Remember how I went to Thomasville a few weeks ago for a work trip? While we were there, we had dinner at this fantastic little restaurant downtown called Jonah’s Fish and Grits. I know, y’all – the seafood thing around here lately is a little weird and totally out of character. Uncharted waters, actually. But I’m workin’ on it.
First of all, Downtown Thomasville is has been totally transformed from the last time I was there. Granted, that was the early 2000s (maybe even 2002 when I took the ACTs at Brookwood), but it’s definitely been a change for the best. I was pleasantly surprised to see an active downtown with shops and restaurants.
We started out the meal with some Cyclone Shrimp and Fried Green Tomatoes.
Cyclone Shrimp, Bang Bang Shrimp, Bangin’ Shrimp… Whatever you want to call them… are spicy, fried deliciousness. You really can’t go wrong with them, and I think they helped clear out my sinuses a tiny bit.
For dinner, I felt like it was appropriate to eat a big, fat juicy steak before spending a day with cows.
Just trying to keep things into perspective and remind myself that Filet Mignon is one of the most magical foods on Earth. This steak did not disappoint in the slightest – juicy, melt in your mouth perfect medium goodness served with sauteed vegetables and french fries (french fries are my spirit animal).
In addition to my filet, I also tried some of the teriyaki salmon which was phenomenal. The food and service at Jonah’s were stellar. This spot is great place for a relaxed, delicious dinner in a quaint Southern town. You really can’t go wrong at this place.
