The aroma of the pit will draw you in and the flavor of the food will bring you back. The BBQ plate is very good with ample portions of pulled pork and sides. The pulled pork is full of flavor, the baked beans are delicious . Don't come here if you are looking for fancy atmosphere, but if you are... More

Outstanding BBQ. Great value. If you want good BBQ get there early. When the days allotment is sold the place closes.

Coming back to Auburn from Selma we got hungry for BBQ and found Sam's on the Alabama BBQ app. I grew up in Montgomery and had forgotten about it. It is a hole in the wall on the Atlanta Hwy. and has been there most of my life but for some reason I never tried it before now. Anyhow we... More

I have been here a few times and have had the exact same experience each time, so I feel that this is probably the way things really are. #1 the bbq is good - the sauce is ok, although they are skimpy with it so you always have to ask for more in a little cup. They could save on... More

Finally stopped by to try Sam's and I wasn't disappointed. I had 2 BBQ sandwiches and they were great , plenty of of meat with great flavor and a good deal of bark. The BBQ covered the entire bun and then some, while also being piled high. I would have rated 5 stars but the fries weren't worth the money.... More

Year of Alabama BBQ .A must stop on the perfect pig Alabama tour. Friendly, non smokey and tasty as it gets. Beans,fries and slaw compliment this slow cooked pork for a awesome Bama BBQ experience. If you live in the area you will be back and if you are visiting put this on your Montgomery must list.

my title says it all. this place has been around forever, and it's not because of the looks. sauce, bbq, sides are terrific. I particularly like the beans. could make a meal off them alone.

Perhaps a bit too "dive-y" for Food Network's "Diners, Drive-Ins, and DIves," but worth a visit from Guy because of the superb southern BBQ. Fries and slaw were good, nothing special but not at all bad, and the baked beans were a little mushy, though the sauce had a nice tang, but the flavor of the pork was to die... More

My husband wanted BBQ so this is where we came for lunch. The pork had a good smoky flavor. They use a vinegar sauce and I prefer a sweet sauce. The slaw and beans were nothing special. After we sit down, my husband asks if I like it. I said I wouldn't come back. He says I usually get the... More
