Highlights
  • Savannah Historic District - Rise and shine! It’s time to explore Savannah and you’ll meet your guide for coffee and soft, warm, powdered sugary goodness in the form of beignets near our starting point. The True South Lunch Tour meets at the Riverfront in Rousakis Riverfront Plaza (close to Huey’s restaurant). Look for your smiling guide in a GA peach-colored shirt and Flavors Food Tours logo.

This tour focuses on CUISINE: enjoying foods native to the South and Savannah, learning the history behind its origins and understanding the culture and history of this region.
We’ll be walking about 2 miles through the historic northern section of Savannah. Foods we’ll be trying include coffee, beignets, Fried Green Tomatoes, Shrimp N Grits and/or other main dishes of the South, She Crab Soup, Pecan Pie and more! This tour includes a cocktail (or mocktail for non drinkers) so ease on into vacation mode an slow it down a bit…you’re in the South now!

What's Included
  • Lunch
  • 1 alcoholic drink (mocktail for non drinkers)
  • Narrated historical & architectural information
Additional Information

The best way to see Savanah is to roll up your sleeves and dine through it!

At Flavors Food Tours we not only explain the history of the city of Savannah, its culture and architecture, but we connect that history with the cuisine and libations iconic of the South and Lowcountry. You’d be surprised how much you can learn from a mouthful of Shrimp N Grits and Fried Green Tomatoes!

Our tours are small, personal and intimate. Sort of like calling up a friendly, knowledgeable local to show you around. Our lunch tour is filling (enough for a meal), visiting up to five foodie places with an alcoholic drink included in the price.

All our restaurant partners stand out as excellent examples of foods iconic to the South. Scoop up some atmosphere with our pillowy Beignets, famous Shrimp ‘n Grits & creamy, dreamy She-Crab Soup. Cap it off with a classic sit down dessert.

This food tour is for the traveler, not the tourist. Join us & say you ate your way through Savannah.

We meet across the street from Huey's Restaurant (115 E River St, Savannah, GA 31401) under the roof pavilion of Rousakis Riverfront Plaza. Your guide will be wearing an orange shirt (Flavors Food Tours logo) and a smile.

Great experience - Such a fun tour - each restaurant offered unique southern dishes. Our host, Pamela, was very personable and gave us a good overview of each restaurant and square. Can’t think of a better way to start our visit.

history made fun - Excellent balance of dining and history. Our guide Kathy, a retired history teacher was the perfect choice for this tour of historic Savanah.

Great lunch food tour - Leslie gave us a history and culinary tour. Delicious food and plenty of it. She makes the tour fun while still maintaining a professional stance. Can’t wait to return to Savannah and do the dinner tour.

lunch and history! - My husband and I had a wonderful lunch tour with True South. We visited five different spots and had a combination of substantial lunch-type food alternating with sweets. I assure you that you won't be hungry afterwards and will have had a good representation of southern food. Everything was delicious. I particularly enjoyed how Leslie not only talked about the food, but also wove in the history of Savannah.

Terrific introduction to Savannah - This tour far exceeded our expectations! Leslie the owner/tour guide was terrific in her thoughtfulness and planning of the full experience which included great history of Savannah as well as highlighting family-owned businesses with representative dishes! Perfect tour size as well allowing for interaction without be overwhelming and thoughtful breaks in walking to enjoy the many squares and layout of the city. Highly recommend!

Even if you are not a foodie, this tour is so much fun! - The tour was more than my friends and I expected, more history and food. The walking was very easy. Our tour guide, Leslie, was friendly and very knowledgeable. The food at every stop was delicious and plentiful. We walked away not wanting anything else to eat. It was a perfect way to spend time with friends!

OUTSTANDING FOOD TOUR!!! - Leslie, the owner, was our tour guide. In short, all of my future tours will most likely pale in comparison. Her sincere passion, experience, and knowledge shine through in this OUTSTANDING tour. The restaurants and food selections were flavorful and representative of historic southern cuisine. I would never have known of these hidden gems! I recommend this tour to anyone who visits Savannah!

Savannah food tour - Our guide, Leslie was awesome. The food was delicious, and the restaurants were very good. The selections were great and gave a sample of low country cuisine.

Fun upscale food tour - Just went on the food tour with my husband and friends. Leslie, our tour guide (and owner) was AMAZING. She was so knowledgeable and sweet. The tour is a walking tour that anyone can take. We learn about Savannah and stop at 5 food stops. Leslie takes us to upscale restaurants where we enjoyed various southern upscale meals. The meals were not only amazing but very relaxing and not rushed. The tour is small so you really get to enjoy your tour guide and meet everyone on the tour. I will be recommending this tour to everyone I know visiting Savannah. Cancel your dinner reservations. You will leave full.

Upscale, fun and delicious! - Leslie was a fun and informative tour guide. We learned a lot of interesting Savannah history and ate some delicious Southern Food. This was a very upscale food tour in which we ate at lovey restaurants in a relaxed manner. We had meal sized dishes, not just a bite, at each place. She texted the night before to check on food allergies and preferences and accommodated me so I could have shrimp and grits without ham or pork. This really was one of the best food tours I have been on. Well worth the price and time!
