Excellent burgers. The branded buns are a nice touch of Texas. service was fast and friendly. Dining room on the smaller side and could get cramped when crowded. Music venue next door was sensational. strong acoustics, clear sound system, clean, and laid out for an optimal listening experience. Sam's is an outstanding venue for dinner and a show.

Burger I had was big and yummy. I think it's a bit pricey, but everyone enjoyed the food. There's not a burger with fries option on the kids menu, so you pay more for their meal since the fries are a la carte.

Very cool place to enjoy an afternoon burger and beer. Outdoor seating was awesome! Made you feel like you were on a picnic. I had the guac burger and onion rings and the huge burger was very tasty! Most of my friends weren't even able to finish all of theirs. Would like to go back sometime for the evening entertainment.... More

We were there on a Thursday night a little early and got right in. The menu was great and the chicken sandwich I had was very good. I would definitely go back!

Sams is combo platter: good live music, beer, full bar and great burgers and fries. They bring in an eclectic mix of mid-range touring acts and local and Austin bands. Large stage for a club and dark, retro atmosphere with raised seating/booths, plus an outside patio between the restaurant and performance space.

What a great afternoon hang out! Good beer and great burgers! Nice patio area, and indoor seating as well. There is a music venue adjacent and draws great bands, quality acts weekly. I would recommend this to any and all travelers looking for a weekend party place!

Ticket prices are reasonable, get a table if you can. Drinks are reasonable and if you get the munchies you can order food or go next door and get something.
