Very tasty BBQ

I got some BBQ recently. The Mac and cheese is great. I ordered a pound of chopped pork and it was a little light on the serving. Beans were delicious. It is a little pricy as my total order ended up being close to $50. Mac/ Cheese, soup, beans and lb of pork. Maybe a lunch special would have... read more

My first impression of this place was "uh-oh"! I do not like restaurants that you stand in line to order, take a seat and they will bring it out to you. That is too much like fast food. We were already in the area so decided to try anyway just to say that we tried. I was not impressed by... More

I try to come at off hours because this is a bustling BBQ place. There's a line to place your order and, hopefully, you'll find a table before your order is ready. The meats are wonderfully smoked. Sides are better here - Cole Slaw often contains pineapple; Lasagne was made from Brunswick Stew and Mac'n'Cheese. And, there's a separate take-out... More

We have frequented BBQ restaurants all over the southeast. Sam's is BY FAR the best BBQ restaurant anywhere. We visit it each time we go through Atlanta. The brisket and pork are excellent and their sides are DELICIOUS! It can't be missed.

We used Sam's for a large group so we carried our order out. It was absolutely delicious. Best mac & cheese I've ever had. Creamy and not too thick. Just delicious. The baked beans were excellent as well. We got brisket, which was tasty, albeit a little dry for my taste. Excellent nevertheless. We also got pulled pork and sausage.... More

Some of the best Baked Beans and Cole Slaw ever. I actually ate those first. I had the brisket and while a bit dry, excellent flavor. I liked that they offered both Kansas City Style and Carolina Style BBQ sauces at the table. Really good fresh made Ice Tea as well.

I have been eating at Sam's BBQ 1 since the month it opened. Last night, I stopped in for comfort food - dining alone. The special was Beef Short Rib, which I ordered. My sides were Fried Okra and Redneck Lasagna with Texas Toast. The sides were excellent - as I expected. The beef was a larger dish than I... More

This is world-class BBQ. The sides are very good. If you have any doubt - try to get carry-out on a Sunday, and you will wait in line for a while. They have won awards, and rightfully so!

Stopped by for lunch and tried the lunch brisket plate with two sides. A bit pricey at $11 but plentiful. Found the brisket to be moist and very flavorful requiring no sauce. Mac and cheese was outstanding but the green beans got left on the table. Wife liked the BBQ sandwich at $8 with chips but I'll stick with the... More
