Love Big Sam's BBQ - Best food and people around

This place is a special secret. Big Sam’s been preparing great BBQ for folks around here for as long as I can remember. It's a wonderful BBQ experience that's all about Sam's unique -"big ole bear style" and original handed-down family recipes. I really like his BBQ. It's smoked tender and... read more

Service - The service was average, with my server being not rude, nor particularly friendly. Food - This is the main problem I have with Big Sam's.

Interesting location, well done design, beer specials, different type BBQ and sauce, curious stew and beans. Unsure if I liked the stew and beans. Nine bucks is too much for a BBQ plate. Five dollars is too much for a BBQ sandwich. Nine dollars for a smoked chicken plate, too high. Sides high priced as well. The place should have... More

Just do not call it Brunswick Stew, because the chef will tell you it is not. It is his own concoction - and darn is it good. His pork is done a bit different too - and it is good as well. Served with no sauce so you can put on your own. It is pulled in the true fashion... More
