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

Hubby and I are still on our roadtrip. Stopped here yesterday but they close early on Sunday. Went back tonight and the parking lot had quite a few cars for dining at 8:30 PM dining. They also have the same menu available on a drive thru. Coldest beer around as schooners were straight from the freezer. We placed our order... More

I have traveled throughout the U. S. and Pit Barbeque slow cooked over several hours is one of my preferred and enjoyable foods. The Texas and Memphis styles are preferred over the sweeter Kansas City Style. The pure Texas style as in Lockhart, Texas (The Barbecue Capital of Texas) believe the meat is not good if you need a sauce... More

Fortunately Sammies BBQ is located about 5 minutes away from our office so whenever I am visiting I hound everyone in the office until they give in, and we all head over for lunch. Last week there were about 10 of us! Sammies is my favorite barbecue place in the area. They offer a great variety of Texas BBQ served... More

First of all, let me state that we had a large crowd at dinner that night and I thought the staff did a good job. We had multiple orders, people arriving at different times, etc. They were a little slow in keeping us stocked with ribs (all you can eat), but not bad other than that. I normally have tap... More
