Sandfly BBQ used to operate out of a Streamliner trailer, but now has a brick and mortar between downtown and Isle of Hope that’s become a destination in its own right. They specialize in Memphis-style BBQ, but also showcase other dishes like St. Louis ribs and Brunswick stew (said to have been invented in nearby Brunswick), and fries topped with hand-pulled pork for the south’s version of poutine. You should always leave room for sides, including fried okra, baked beans, and coleslaw, to enjoy in the booths in the air conditioning. Come here for a quick lunch while exploring the nearby Wormsloe State Historic Site.
