Very tasty critters! And the staff was very helpful :)

Looking at the pics did help me find the place... Great food, great service, I had a hard time deciding so I went with the game trio sliders & I'm very happy & feeling good! I would be a vegetarian if critters didn't taste so good! My trio included Elk, bison & venison, each one had a nice... read more

Food is exotic and great like the other review said. However, at lunchtime (which didn't seem all that crowded on MLK day, we waited 40 minutes (receipt is time stamped) for our food. We probably won't go there again, at least if we are time constrained.

Yum. If you are an adventurous carnivore type, then this is your place. The menu entices with a selection of meats that simply isn't duplicated anywhere in this city. I had the yak burger, it was flavorful and juicy. They top everything with your choice of sauce, all made in house and unique in flavor. No worries about selecting a... More

Can't really comment on the food because both times I have attempted to go there they have totally ignored me while I sat for 5 minutes at the drive thru. One time...I can over look but twice? Come on... Either get a better system or a more attentive staff.

First time ever eating in a restaurant that only serves exotic food but I was not disappointed. I had the venison burger along with the deep fried pickles and french fries. The group I was with had everything from the bison burger, to the various sausage they serve. Everything was excellent. The place can get busy and they have limited... More

We've had various versions of their empanadas, sausage dogs, burgers and salads. We've yet to be disappointed! Have to say, a little burned out on some of my favorite burger joints around town until I found Sammy's. Whether you're craving a dog or burger, you won't be disappointed! If you're into spicy, try the ghost pepper sauce on something...it's by... More

They have burgers or sausages made from elk to kangaroo. If you are game (no pun intended) this is a good place to start to get a taste. Get different meat sausages and see if you can tell the difference. The staff are helpful and friendly.
