Not sure about a grocer, but there is at least one great little Italian restaurant--mom and pop operation. Sorry, can't remember the name.

One of the things you will notice if you visit Augusta is the lack of Southern Homestyle restaurants. Nearly everything in that town is a chain so finding real local Southern food is surprisingly difficult. There used to be a fairly decent soul food restaurant in Augusta.. but it closed because the owner had legal troubles. There are a couple of good Southern Style Seafood places... Old McDonald Fish Camp in South Carolina and T's in South Augusta.. but not much beyond that.. Augusta really lacks really good homestyle meat and 2 vegetable places. Not really sure why this is.. maybe its because the chain restaurants are so dominant. As for Barbecue. the better places are in South Carolina.. everyone always raves about Sconyers.. but I never found that it lived up to all its hype. It's rather overpriced for barbecue and nothing extraordinary.

Blue Willow Inn, Mrs Wilkes Boarding HOuse, and The Berryman HOuse are all great truly Southern homestyle restaurants.

Unhappy Top Hat Chicken

Columbus has got some good down home southern style restaurants, such as Country's BBQ, Ezel's, Wynnton BBQ Pit, 13th Street BBQ, Macon Road BBQ, Chester's, Top Hat Chicken (the original spicy chicken) and Rosehill. These are home grown and have been in business for many years. I believe that their flavor is distinctly Columbus, but I am slightly biased.
Unfortunately, Top Hat Chicken has been closed for about a year now... a great shame.

Everything is a "coke". As in, "Hey, you want a coke?" Any type of soda is called a "coke".

Fried Chicken - Must have HOMEMADE pimento & cheese sandwiches and pineapple sandwiches to go with it!!!

You can find an AWESOME scramble dog in Albany at the Little Red Dog House on Broad Ave.

Pound Cakes
Banana Pudding
Buttermilk Pies

The Brunswick Stew at the Georgia Pig in Brunswick is fabulous! I wish I was close enough to get some. Hopefully in a year or so I will be.
