After a day on the river with our dogs, we were looking for a place when we can take them. To our luck we found Sam's BBQ #1. We had the baby back ribs lunch with two sides for $10.50. The ribs were excellent with fall off the bone and tasted smoky and tender. If you are in the area,... More

The food is all great. Especially the Baby Back Ribs and the Brunswick Stew. Brisket - Pork - and all of the trimmings are equally good. Great quality - Good sized portions.

Dinner party of five raved about the beef brisket and the Ribs were wonderful, too [as was the pulled pork which I tried on a previous visit]. Two sides were good and more than enough to eat for some hungry folks who had toured the area. Highly recommended for all; good facility suitable for families.

had fourth of July lunch at Sams. This was out second visit and we were not disappointed. The pork was tender, the chicken cooked to perfection and the sides were very tasty. The wait staff were very friendly and helpful. We even got to meet Sam and he visited with us. He even gave us a sample of his beef... More

The pork robs were smoked well, but too bland to eat without sauce. The Kansas City sauce wasn't very good. The NC vinegar sauce was better. Their collards contained a lot of stems and was poorly seasoned. The fries were okay. We saw the brisket on another table. It appeared dry. Probably won't go back.

Very delicious Barbeque and sides for families or singles. Owner greeted us and told us about the specials for the night. Smoked pork chops were the special with apricot sauce. Yummy! Even if you don't eat meat, many meatless sides to order. Smoked on the premises. Highly recommend you try this place.

We had a family lunch here last Sunday. Ordered Ribs and Brisket. Brisket was as dry as it could be (despite ordering - requesting moist) and ribs seemed refrigerated and microwaved leftovers from previous day. To be honest, we have eaten some pretty good BBQ here in the past, but the poor quality this visit as stated above was disapointing.... More

A friend brought us there, but I wasn't impressed. The brunswick stew was soupy with little meat or vegetables. I also had the fried okra which came out hot but overcooked. Maybe we just caught them on a bad day.
