I went to Sam’s BBQ because I heard that it was good. And it was. I got the BBQ pork sandwich and fries and it was delicious.

Absolutely the best. We regularly get takeout and it’s always fan-f’n-tastic. Brisket is awesome. Mac and cheese is to die for - possibly literally with all the cheese. Always worth the stop.

Dirty with flies everywhere- landing on you and your food. WHERE IS THE HEALTH INSPECTOR??? Don’t clean —- this is the same mentality that phases out quality condiments like Tabasco - fools!

No frills BBQ at its best. You pay for the food and not the frills. Go ahead and put some South in your mouth. Enjoy

This is definitely the best BBQ in town. Consistently fresh and tasty. Never a disappointment. Meaty Ribs with little fat. Excellent juicy Pork and Brisket. Good Cole Slaw, and excellent Potato Salad. Brunswick Stew is full of meat and vegetables. Not at all watery. Great...More

Dinner at Sam's BBQ-1 was our choice one night last week. A new offering is a sandwich side and drink for $10 and we both chose that. My wife had the pork sandwich with a side of brisket chili (a new occasional option) and a...More

There is a lot of good bbq out there. This joint is one of the very best. Hell the beans were better than some pulled pork I’ve been served. But it should. They excel at sides here. The mac n cheese is some of the...More

We previously thought the food was OK, but in recent visits they have consistently had a snotty attitude. This even included a $250 carry-out order and I walked out thinking “nothing is worth putting up with that attitude “ Goodbye- I won’t be back.

It's variable. The beef rib, called a short rib, is market priced. When the cut gets too expensive they don't buy 'em. Last time I was there, they only had dinner-sized cuts, so I ate a $10.25 pork rib platter instead... More
