“You don’t need no teeth to eat my beef!”, and let me tell you, he ain’t lying. The ribs are fall off the bone good, the best ribs I have had in my life. Sam’s is perhaps the best BBQ you’ll find in Austin, Texas. Since 1957 Sam’s has been serving up meat and southern sides to the community. Nic Cage, Al Pacino, and Stevie Ray Vaughan are among the many who have found their way to this little neighborhood joint on the corner of East Twelfth and Poquito. Two fires, a $5 million gentrification buy out offer, and a NAACP incident with the band Midland couldn’t get to owner Brian Mays, who greeted us upon entry. When in ATX, stop in for a bite. You won’t be disappointed.
