Me and a business associate are in town for a couple of weeks. We drove by Sam's on our way to the Grand Bay Wildlife Center (which is a must see...). We decided that we would stop at Sam's on our way back for lunch....More

Sam's BBQ is by far the best in town. The location is sketchy, right next to a liquor store and hobo hangout. I've never had a problem but I always get in and get out! I believe they are cash only too. Despite all of...More

Very good BBQ, indeed. You can tell he is very proud of his cooking and he should be, too. I have tried his pulled pork, his rib and the sausage. The kids also love his mac &cheese and the baked beans. It is a treat...More

The best barbecued anything in valdosta. He uses a mustard based bbq sauce I generally don't like but his was excellent. Fall off the bone ribs. Perfectly cooked sausage and wonderful pulled pork.
