They went out of business and tore the building down. It was good food but a bad location. It couldn't compete with area restaurants.

After many years of decent service and food, Sam's Joint is out of business and in the process of being torn down as a result of the development in the Lakes Mall area. R.I.P Sam's ribs which were outstanding.

Needs a major overhaul. Wait staff is old and slow. Food is average. Ended up only doing apps and drinks because service was so slow. Probably wont go back.

Many Sam's Joints around the area and all are great. Outstanding ribs and many other foods available. They have special pricing in Nov and March each year with ribs at prices of 20 years ago. Crowded then but worth any wait.

Old building. Old menu. A little dark and dreary inside. But the food tastes good. Nachos are huge and tasty. Just spicey enough. The perch is reasonably priced and tastes delicious.
