Our first time here and got a few different things for lunch. Seriously it was all awesome. Light and dark chicken ribs pulled pork and a bunch of different sides were all great! We will definitely be back.

A hidden gem in East Cobb. I've tried about everything on the menu. My favorites are the baby back ribs and the brisket sandwich. Their sides are even great--from homemade mac and cheese to butternut squash soup. A good value and casual atmosphere. I often...More

Sam's BBQ 1 has outstanding food, friendly staff, plenty of parking. Indoor seating or takeaway next door. Can be busy at times. The brisket, onion petals & mac'n'cheese are the best.
