I would actually like give this a rating of Good rather than Average, but it's a stretch to give a rating of Very Good to a strip mall hot dog joint. They have a good variety of food and I have stopped in for takeout many times. I've never had a bad meal. I might give a rating of Very... More

In a bit of a hurry, give Big Sammy's a try. Very, very good food for a reasonable price. Wide variety, from Chicago dogs, beef, burgers...Big Sammy's has it all! Eat in or take it on the run. Not a bad thing to say about this place. Always a winner!

1st time at Sammys. Great prices on great Chicago food! Would chose this location on a return trip. Gyros and italian beefs were fabulous!

The Italian beef sandwich was generous in size, but lacking in taste. The roll appeared to be old, dipped in au jus, and fell apart when picked up. The beef was cold and very dry, with the side of fries that were soggie and barely cooked past blanching. Hotdogs appeared to be a better choice, with all the "Chicago" fixings... More

Whether it is a burger, hot dogs, or gyros; the food is excellent. I also love their onion rings as a side. My family orders often from this location and are always satisfied.

I love the variety that Big Sammy's menu offers. The original gyro and chicken alternative are always super delicious. Chicago style hotdogs, burgers, bbq beef and puller pork sandwiches, sausage/beef combo and pizza puff are just a few of the foods I get when I visit. The staff are always friendly and the place is very clean.

Walked in, viewed the menu on the wall and ordered a dog and fries. The only English I heard the entire time I was there was "WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE" the rest of my meal consisted of two employees behind the counter yucking it up in Spanish. As I tried to eat my hotdog I got a lesson on how... More

As others have said, one of the last hour dog places around. All of the food is well done, but you must try the cheese logs. Nothing but cheese deep fried in batter. Fantastic and terrible for you!

The food at Big Sammy's is the draw. The serve hot dogs that taste like the ones I remember as a kid. The burgers are also great - charbroiled and high quality meat. The prices are a bit high but quality costs.

Every one is drawn to the $5.00 HOT DOG SPECIAL. The hotdogs are extremely small which could lead someone not to go back. As stated by other reviewers> PICK SOMETHING ELSE. Excellent Gyros, Excellent Pork Chop sandwich, Excellent Ribs, Excellent Beef combo sandwich, Burgers: So-So, Fish Very good. The cooks are not the most personable but they grow on you... More
