We have been going back here for about 10 years. Love the rib plate, and pork sandwich. Beef Brisket is also a good choice, very tender and moist. Favorite sides are red neck lasagna, brunswick stew, Cole slaw, fries....we usually go for lunch for the special.

I have ordered takeout several times from Sam's. Never even knew there was a nice, little restaurant to sit down and eat. Food's very good. Glad to find a new place to go!

We stopped in for lunch yesterday. I ordered the Rib plate from the lunch menu with fried okra, redneck lasagna, and Texas Toast. All was perfect. The ribs were incredibly meaty and tender. The okra was cooked perfectly. The redneck lasagna wonderful. The Texas toast was done just right. I even enjoyed the dill pickle slices!

Focus is on keeping it simple and delicious. The pulled pork sandwich with side of mac & cheese and sweet tea is second to none. Service is friendly and fast.

This was catered at a work event & my husband said it was the best mac & cheese he'd ever eaten. He wanted to get some to take home

I stopped in with a group of friends after a morning hike along the nearby Chattahoochee River. The menu is limited (various cuts of beef, pork and chicken and about a dozen sides). Meals can be ordered as lunch (on a bun with 1 side) or dinner (no bun and two sides). After filling our glasses at the drink area... More

Excellent BBQ and sauce, but could use better selection of sides. Not really crazy about any of them.

I really like barbecue. And I have given this place multiple chances. It's not that it's bad, please don't take me the wrong way. It's just there is a lot better barbecue in other places around Atlanta. Good but not awesome.

Ordered for a large group and only heard rave reviews all night. The meats were all perfectly cooked and juicy. The sides were also really nice. A great place for tasty catering.
