Sams atmosphere is relaxed and friendly. The service is fast and the food is great. My family also enjoys the take out service.

My family loves this place. The brisket and pulled pork are fantastic, but the star is the Mac and cheese.
We adore that dish! Great place for casual lunch or dinner, or take out.

Don't be fooled by the location in a nondescript shopping center. This is one of the best BBQ restaurants I've been to in Metro Atlanta. Order at the counter and they bring it out to you.
Between us we tried the following items: pulled pork (excellent!); cole slaw, mac n cheese, green beans, and onion "petals" (all very good); and brunswick stew (good but a bit watery).
It's also a plus that they serve on real plates and have real utensils.
Strongly recommended! This is almost as good as Slope's, which remains my personal favorite.

Other BBQ's have sprung up from this one (partners opened other restaurants), but this is THE original! The meat is great - and the macaroni and cheese to die for! Don't come here if you're on a diet or not hungry!

Nothing much for atmosphere, though they have take out and sit down. It's a BBQ joint so don't expect tablecloths!

The most wonderful smoked ham! Usually available during Holidays. It is the best ham you will ever eat!
