Now, I know some have their likes and dislikes about places. So you have decide how you like this place. For me, I rather eat some where else. BBQ sauce is not my cup of tea. Not really much about the cole slaw too. I would like to have my meal more warmer than what we had. Service wasn't that... More

The smoked wings and ribs are cooked to perfection. You will eat so much you will hurt yourself. The adds are delicious and served with fresh bread. Southern cuisine at the finest. The looks from outside will make you say are you sure but once you taste the food you will smack yourself for not trying sooner. The restaurant is... More

Sam's Smokehouse has the best BBQ. The people are friendly and everyone has a great time there. When I was working, they delivered our orders to our plant. I don't know if they still do that, but you can't go wrong by eating at SAM'S.

This is a locally owned restaurant. Little rustic but staff is friendly and the Best wings I've ever eaten. Smoked chicken and ribs are just as good. With closing time at 7:00pm sometimes its hard to get there after work.

Don't be put off by the appearance of the building. The ribs are great! You might also want to try the smoked wings and potato salad. I think you will find both of them a great surprise. The ribs are so tender they melt in your mouth. So forget the big name bbq, drive to Fayette and get the good... More

I was stuck in Fayette over the lunch hour and two people at the courthouse said try Sam's. What a treat! First, it is a dive with a former porch enclosed for dining, so it is rural casual. Second, Sam actually works here cooking and serving at the counter, so you know he cares. His unique feature is smoked BBQ... More
