Savannah area favorite Sandfly Bar-B-Q, on Ferguson, now has a sister spot in downtown Savannah, in a nifty little vintage Streamliner diner on Barnard Street. The 1930s-era Art Deco metal-clad, wood-paneled structure was rescued by SCAD; now the transformed Sandfly Bar-B-Q at the Streamliner offers their signature Memphis-influenced favorites, including the dynamite crunch-tipped ribs, addictive smoked sausage and even the occasional ethereal coconut cake, the latter made in-house by manager Sean Goggin. (The rest comes from a new smokehouse addition behind the old diner.) We also loved the craft brews, including Jekyll Brewing’s Hop Dang Diggity IPA and Small Town Brewery’s “Not Your Father’s Root Beer,” a hard soda best enjoyed over ice.
