All carry out Barbeque joint with the best tasting pulled pork, ribs, chicken and fixings in the area. But don't take my word, Sam wins the Best BBQ contest every year and has the trophies to prove it!!

The best barbecued anything in valdosta. He uses a mustard based bbq sauce I generally don't like but his was excellent. Fall off the bone ribs. Perfectly cooked sausage and wonderful pulled pork.

I have enjoyed Sam's BBQ for several years. Our office had dinners delivered atleast twice a month. My husband and I have purchased carry-out numerous times. BBQ ribs and chicken are awesome and always a good selection of side items. Give them a try!

I was in Valdosta for business at VSU, and the suggestion came up for lunch. BBQ seemed like a great option! Had previously gone to the Smokin' Pig, so that was a pass this time. After reading MANY reviews on Sam's the decision was made....More
