Two popular local eats here Jonah's fish and grits and Liam's restaurant, both of which are now part of the Top 100 Georgia Eats list.
"We were so excited when the list came out and we we're told that both Liam's and Jonah's, their dishes were on the top 100 plates that locals love. So immediately I contacted Caleb Brown and Jonah's and Rhonda Foster at Liam's and let them know," said Bonnie Hayes, Thomasville Tourism Director.
Both owners are excited about what this means for not only for their restaurants but for their community.
"This is completely unexpected, we are so happy to be on this list. Especially since Thomasville is a small city and we're at the southern most tip of the state. We're very happy to be on this list and be featured using local produce and food," said Foster
