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

The food is always hot and delicious. I recommend the hot dog and fry combo; the Italian Beef is good too. It's clean and the service is fast. You can't go wrong with any Big Sammy's location.

Big Sammy's is your typical hot dog joint and the prices on the daily specials make this one a deal. While there I saw one mother bring in 5 kids and the entire family at for $15. I had a hot dog while Craig ate a gyro both were delicious...though I must admit I like larger dogs as this one... More

Gyros. Polish. Hot Dog. Beef. In that order, or all at once. Quick service; I prefer to carry out. Another location can also be found on the NW corner of Arlington Heights and Biesterfield Roads.

He really seemed to care what they were serving which is rare these days. Though I dont get to this... More

If I could give this place zero stars (0) I would. Terrible customer service and bad food. I ordered chili cheese fries and a small drink. Although the "chili cheese fries" were not on the menu, the cashier said they could make it. The order came as three items; the fries in a bag with the chili in a small... More
