Have you ever had the urge to get in the car and drive an hour for some BBQ you read about in Garden and Gun?
Well, that’s exactly what happened this past Sunday. My friend Lauren and I were chatting about breakfast plans when she sent me a screenshot of Garden and Gun’s write up about Southern Soul Barbeque in St. Simons Island, GA. Since it’s only 60 miles away, we hopped in my car and went for a drive.
Situated on a roundabout in an old gas station, Southern Soul serves up barbeque staples like pulled pork, brisket, mac and cheese, and french fries. I ordered the brisket burnt ends sandwich and some fried green beans:
I have a serious love affair with burnt ends. I order them almost every time I go to Mojo’s, and as soon as I saw this sandwich on the menu, I had to order it. The chunks of beautiful beefy goodness were moist, tender, and perfectly charred and seasoned. There was BBQ sauce on the table, but it was completely unnecessary. The green beans were thicker battered, which made them wonderfully crispy. A++ to both.
We also ordered a side of mac and cheese and the french fries.
The mac and cheese was fairly standard, but the fries were perfection.
Overall, it was definitely worth the mini-adventure to St. Simons Island! 10 out of 10, would eat again.
