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!

Takeaway dinner. Chocked full wet brisket sandwiches—oh yea. Sides of chips green beans and coke and onion salad. Just right. Fountain Cokes the home office the home office would be proud of. Friendly and great prices. “Sam” took the orders today and shared some great...stories of hosting and traveling to corporate outings. #1 is the real dealMore

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...for yourself, or with guests. Never a disappointment.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...glass of sweet tea. I had the wet brisket sandwich, brisket chili (because I had not had it previously) and a Coke Zero. Our sandwiches were of modest size (which was appropriate for our appetites that evening). Both received excellent comments. The brisket chili was heavily meat, which surprised us pleasantly. Service was pleasant, helpful, and prompt. We could not have asked for a more pleasant experience. I believe I have now been eating here, with some regularity, for fourteen years. I know that I first visited during their third week of operation.More

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
