Really Unique & Tasty Meats

A friend brought me to lunch here, and I was a little unsure what to think at first. But, the food was so tasty. Everything was cooked well and seasoned perfectly. We had the sausage sampler...delicious! I have been back twice since then, and I have tried a number different things and enjoyed... read more

We had lunch at Sammy's one afternoon while in that neck of the woods. The kids were skeptical at first, but since we didn't care what they thought, we made them eat lunch here. My son had the Python chili and said it was phenomenal. My husband had the Kangaroo burger and the meat was tastey. It had a slight... More

Came for the python chili. Had a fun experience and everyone was super nice. Got a cider and some sliders as well. Python chili tasted like regular chili to me, but still a fun time. The sliders all had delicious sauces as well.

I was visiting a friend who recently moved down to Houston and the first spot he suggested was Sammy's Wild Game and I can not be anymore happy that he did. Service was extremely friendly and helpful. Menu changes weekly depending on what game they get in. If you are in the area I highly suggest experiencing it for yourself,... More

Finding a parking spot for this restaurant can be challenging but it is worth the effort for a quick, inexpensive experience tasting different game burgers. We were able to get in quickly on a Sunday for lunch and really enjoyed the sliders which allowed you to taste 3 different types of meat. Quality food!

I had a friend visiting from out of town whom really wanted a TEXAS meal. She wasn't craving steaks, but she kept talking about getting a venison burger or some other sort of wild game meal. I was surprised to find that the top rated wild game restaurant was located in the Heights and not in one of the outlying... More

I came here looking to try bison for the first time. I went out with elk burger, buffalo burger, and bison hot dog............ All were great, but the bison hot dog with feta cheese and grilled onions was amazing....... And I usually don't even like hot dogs. Will definitely come here again next time I am in Houston. Look to... More

I was amazed the wild game selections offered daily at this very laid back casual restaurant for lunch or dinner. The burgers -elk, bison, etc. we got were great and really enjoyed them. I would recommend this place for anyone trying to get the lean meat wild game meat. It is more expensive than typical burgers but worth it. I... More

I have ate here a few times.. Burgers are usually good. Different selection of wild game on a pretzel bun.. Today I elected to have the venison hot dog.. Unfortunately it was no good.. There was no flavor at all to it and tastes more like mystery meat. Was not at all happy.. If you do go to Sammy's stick... More

Went here with some friends. Had the Yak burger. It was a good experience and casual atmosphere. There are only a few tables, so you wouldn't want a large party. We were 5 guys crammed into a small table for 4. I'd come back for the novelty with someone who hasn't been, but wouldn't make it a regular spot. You... More
