A serious foodie visit to St. Simons Island must include a stop at Southern Soul, a celebration of protein located at the epicenter of the island’s more populous south end. Co-owner Griffin Bufkin declares “you want to go to a barbeque place with wood out front” and so it is at Southern Soul. The restaurant’s three smokers, all set at different temperatures according to the type of meat to be cooked, burn about $300 of wood per week. The Weekday Worker Special offers a pulled pork “Que” sandwich with fries and a large soda for $6.50. For a more eclectic sample, go for the $15 Southern Soul Sampler with two meats, Brunswick stew, and a side (bring your eatin’ clothes). Try the lovely two-toned smoky brisket and classic pulled pork. For directions and a menu, click here.
