Good burger, great music

Went to Sam's to eat and see a show. The burger was great. The waffle fries were awful (pale and flavored of overused frying oil). The show we saw (Hayes Carll acoustic) was fantastic. We got there early enough to get spots up front and had a great time.

You just cannot go wrong with Sam's. I think it's one of the top burgers in San Antonio, right up there with Luthers Cafe. The new waffle fries were a welcome change today. I ordered the Tender Bender today which is a generous plate of chicken strips, small salad garnish, and new waffle fries, and homemade ranch dressing . Food... More

As we walked in,the cashier was nowhere to be found. After we got our order my hamburger was under cooked. So I asked for a fresh one , so what did I get a slightly over cooked one to make up for the first one. The staff was eating behind the counter and joking in the kitchen. Nothing like I... More

We've eaten at Sam's a couple of times, and the burgers/service were above average. However, Sam's is about the music. This is a place where you can find many of the local and touring artists in a small venue. The seating is limited, but really, who goes to listen to good music sitting down? If you want a booth, you... More

Customer service is great, food is great, and the atmosphere is relaxing. I ordered their 1 lb burger with a side of fried pickles which my nephews and brother helped me eat. It was good.

Overall not impressed. Fries (sweet potato and regular) were greasy. Burgers were substantial but nothing that great. It was takeout so maybe this food doesn't transfer well. I'll give it another chance.

Went to see a band on a Friday night. We got there early and were 10th in line. When they opened the doors, all the tables were reserved and then the few folks that sat down "reserved" the rest for ppl that were not even there yet. That said, the band was awesome and the drinks were reasonably priced.

the costumer service is always great, burgers seem a little pricey when you first glance the menu but they are definitely worth it, both good quality and good size. On top of that they often have musicians and events making it one of my favority places in San Antonio

Went there and had the bacon cheddar with a side of Onion rings! Burger was home made and HUGE! Definitely worth the 8.50 for the sandwich..+ 2.50 for the Rings which were home made and quite good too! Definitely worth a trip to satisfy the burger cravings!
