Our family ate here tonight and this restaurant food was delicious. Two of us had elk burgers, one had the boar burger one had that sliders variety of kangaroo, elk and water buffalo. The bread choices were pretzel bun or whole wheat and each was very good bread. The hosts were very helpful in selections from their varied menu choices.... More

My husband, friends and I eat here as often as possible. The food obviously is unique, but has tremendous flavor. The combinations of sauces that come along with the 3 slider plate is amazing. The python chili fries are surprisingly delicious with really tender meat. The staff are friendly and service is quick. Very casual with a good beer selection... More

Over dinner a few weeks ago, my teenage son and his friends thought it would be fun to go to a restaurant that served wild game. Places I've been to over the years tend to be a little expensive so we were surprised when we googled for restaurants in Houston that serve such fare and found Sammy's. We looked at... More

A friend brought me to lunch here, and I was a little unsure what to think at first. But, the food was so tasty. Everything was cooked well and seasoned perfectly. We had the sausage sampler...delicious! I have been back twice since then, and I have tried a number different things and enjoyed them all!

We had lunch at Sammy's one afternoon while in that neck of the woods. The kids were skeptical at first, but since we didn't care what they thought, we made them eat lunch here. My son had the Python chili and said it was phenomenal. My husband had the Kangaroo burger and the meat was tastey. It had a slight... More

Came for the python chili. Had a fun experience and everyone was super nice. Got a cider and some sliders as well. Python chili tasted like regular chili to me, but still a fun time. The sliders all had delicious sauces as well.

I was visiting a friend who recently moved down to Houston and the first spot he suggested was Sammy's Wild Game and I can not be anymore happy that he did. Service was extremely friendly and helpful. Menu changes weekly depending on what game they get in. If you are in the area I highly suggest experiencing it for yourself,... More

Finding a parking spot for this restaurant can be challenging but it is worth the effort for a quick, inexpensive experience tasting different game burgers. We were able to get in quickly on a Sunday for lunch and really enjoyed the sliders which allowed you to taste 3 different types of meat. Quality food!

I had a friend visiting from out of town whom really wanted a TEXAS meal. She wasn't craving steaks, but she kept talking about getting a venison burger or some other sort of wild game meal. I was surprised to find that the top rated wild game restaurant was located in the Heights and not in one of the outlying... More

I came here looking to try bison for the first time. I went out with elk burger, buffalo burger, and bison hot dog............ All were great, but the bison hot dog with feta cheese and grilled onions was amazing....... And I usually don't even like hot dogs. Will definitely come here again next time I am in Houston. Look to... More
