The President Stops For Lunch at Mrs. Wilkes' In Savannah

Last week, after making a speech at Savannah Tech, President Obama swung by area soul food gem Mrs. WIlkes' Dining Room to enjoy a little fried chicken, iced tea, and sweet potatoes with a few local diners. As is standard with these sort of things, the secret service shut the place down to anyone that hadn't already taken a table. Once the president arrived, he shared a family-style meal with the customers who were already there. Savannah Now has a bunch of pics of the chaos outside the restaurant, a White House news clip of The President's meal is below.
