I was hoping for better, but the longer I was there, the less I enjoyed it. Could have been cleaner, Could have had better service. Could have been cooked a little longer. I did not dig the smoking or the smell of the bar area. Nice patio area, but needs a good cleaning. Great... read more

Went in on a Tuesday night to get a "to go" order. This isn't the first time here as my wife and I go often and sit in the dining room. The bar area is totally segregated from the dining room because they allow smoking in that area. To place the order I had to visit the bar. The waitress... More

I have been going to this great little place for years. My family use to go when I was a kid and I still go as often as I can when I am in the area. The ribs are yummy and the "sour" slaw is the best. I just wish I was in the area more often so I could... More

Went for lunch, nice enough service, rustic atmosphere, but food left lots to be desired. I ordered the Sausage Plate with 2 sides.....liked the bean side. The sausage was very bland, tasted like Polska Kielbasa from the supermarket warmed in heavy oil and served. Nothing BBQ about it. The fry wedges and onion rings split side dish were very greasy,...

We have passed by here several times and always talked about going. Finally decided to do it and it really wasn't what I hoped it would be. Since the place has been around for a long time I expected "knock your socks off" BBQ. The brisket was really dry and I had to use the sauce (which had great flavor)... More

My first concern was when we walked in and place was nearly empty on a Friday night. Now I know why. Brisket was dry, flavorless, and nearly inedible. Ribs only OK, dry as well, and tasted more like ham. Sides not bad. Large portions and cheap, but despite good reviews on multiple sites, I cannot recommend this place. Why sell... More

I was in the Dallas Ft Worh area during Labor Day weekend 2013 and had the displeasure of eating take out from Sammie's BBQ in Ft Worth. The service was good but the food was horrible. The meat was dry and the sides did not taste fresh and was not tasty. My friend and I both had peach cobbler and... More

Sammie's Bar-B-Q has been serving Fort Worth residents with "Texas-Style Bar-B-Que" in an "old west setting" for almost 70 years. The owners proudly proclaim that they use the original recipes and cooking techniques as when the restaurant opened in 1946. Upon being seated, I was handed a large menu that contained an extensive list of bar-b-q dinner and sandwich options,... More

The ribs and beef were well prepared and flavorful. I also enjoyed the tart BBQ sauce and the raw onions were sweet. The potatoes and onion rings were cooked in some of the oldest grease that I've ever seen and were not good. The potato salad and cole slaw were out of a plastic container and obviously not made on... More
