Stroll down Savannah’s picturesque Jones Street any morning around 10:30 and you’ll see a line beginning to form outside a gorgeous old home called Mrs. Wilkes’ Dining Room.
As it turns out, everyone is waiting to be seated by the owners, Marcia and Ronnie Thompson. But don’t get any ideas. Just because you show up with a group of people doesn’t mean you’ll be dining with them.
See, Mrs. Wilkes has a thing for bringing good folks together — even if they didn’t know each other when they walked through the door.
And that’s half the fun (just ask the people who got to sit next to President Obama last year.)
Take that Paula Deen.
