Are you in town visiting family for the holidays and don’t want to show up to dinner empty handed? You can still be the hero at your family’s holiday gathering with a side dish (or even the whole meal) from one of Columbia County’s local restaurants. Just order ahead, heat and serve.
Wife Saver– Wife Saver has been an Augusta tradition since 1965, and with a location in Grovetown and on Fury’s Ferry Road, you’ll be sure to find their sides delicious and convenient. Our Staff pick: get the Mac & Cheese. Your family will thank you!
Goolsby’s– This simply prepared, country cooking has become a local favorite. You will taste the Goolsby family’s passion for southern food from the first bite! While you can’t go wrong with any side dish here, our staff recommends the Sweet Potato Casserole!
