Decided to stop and try Sammie's for some BBQ. While understaffed, the waitress' was very friendly. Between the three of us we had the BBQ all white chicken (under cooked and outside tough), the turkey (they threw it on the griddle and "fried" it ) and the sausage was ok. The BBQ sauce was very liquid and did not have... More

I was hoping for better, but the longer I was there, the less I enjoyed it. Could have been cleaner, Could have had better service. Could have been cooked a little longer. I did not dig the smoking or the smell of the bar area. Nice patio area, but needs a good cleaning. Great Location. Advertises the coldest beer in... More

Went in on a Tuesday night to get a "to go" order. This isn't the first time here as my wife and I go often and sit in the dining room. The bar area is totally segregated from the dining room because they allow smoking in that area. To place the order I had to visit the bar. The waitress... More

I have been going to this great little place for years. My family use to go when I was a kid and I still go as often as I can when I am in the area. The ribs are yummy and the "sour" slaw is the best. I just wish I was in the area more often so I could... More

We have passed by here several times and always talked about going. Finally decided to do it and it really wasn't what I hoped it would be. Since the place has been around for a long time I expected "knock your socks off" BBQ. The brisket was really dry and I had to use the sauce (which had great flavor)... More

My first concern was when we walked in and place was nearly empty on a Friday night. Now I know why. Brisket was dry, flavorless, and nearly inedible. Ribs only OK, dry as well, and tasted more like ham. Sides not bad. Large portions and cheap, but despite good reviews on multiple sites, I cannot recommend this place. Why sell... More

Sammie's Bar-B-Q has been serving Fort Worth residents with "Texas-Style Bar-B-Que" in an "old west setting" for almost 70 years. The owners proudly proclaim that they use the original recipes and cooking techniques as when the restaurant opened in 1946. Upon being seated, I was handed a large menu that contained an extensive list of bar-b-q dinner and sandwich options,... More
