“Finally! A Packers Sports Bar!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2013

Have been in and out of San Antonio over the last few decades, always on the lookout for a good place to watch the Green Bay Packers play and I can finally say that there is a great group that meets at Big Sam's.

It's safe, has plenty of parking, clean all around, and is all ages.

The Bears still suck!

“Eat before you go”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2012

As a sports bar this place is fantastic with lots of well placed TVs and many beverage options. Great drink specials during games.

But - THE FOOD IS HORRIBLE!!!

Shrimp was the best item we ordered but it sufferred from excess breading and bordered on being overcooked.

Catfish also sufferred from overbreading and seemed to have been in a freezer too long. The breading did not adhere to the fish.

Waitress was very nice and apologized repeatedly for food quality. She offerred to substitute another dish but when I asked if I would like the alternative she replied in the negative.

Next time (if ther is one) I will chow down at Los Robertos across the street and come here for a game and drinks.
