Sams barbecue is excellent and at a fair price. It is consistently good, and the service is always friendly. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for some delicious bbq. Our family eats here at least once a week!

Absolutely loved the sampler platter. All the meats were moist. Just a great deal and meal to share with your SO. The sauces were all delicious. And the ribs were my favorite!
