After reading the recent newspaper's People Coice awards for Best BBQ, we decided to check this place out. We went at 4 PM on a Friday. People were in bar and we were only ones in their dining room. My husband ordered beef brisket and I ordered ribs...both with 'fair fries' and Cole slaw. When our food came out, immediately... More

Our high school team plays in Dover from time to time. When we do the best thing is going home with a win but close second is dinner at Sammy Sue's Great food, Great atmosphere, Great service. Crazy if you go to "The Yard", you will be missing a better meal at Sammy Sue's!

We wanted to get dinner but didn't feel like having Amish food. So I started looking on Trip Advisor and saw the other reviews were great for Sammy Sue's BBQ so we pulled up and I was a little hesitant. The restaurant itself isn't much to look at but we decided to go in and check it out. Boy, are... More

Went here as it was listed number 1 in Dover. Staying overnight so had no idea of the options. Looking, so doubtful from outside but took courage to go in and was surprised, as better inside than out. Menu was OK and good prices, it's a bar so nothing special in terms of decor and service was OK. Food came... More

Read about this place on T.A. After stopping at Warther's to get our knives sharpened we were looking for a place to get lunch before getting back on the road. Sammy Sue's was # 1 and BBQ sounded good. Looked a bit run down on the outside and inside was plain but clean. Food was fabulous! MY husband had the... More

The pulled pork Sammie was melt-in-your-mouth delicious. If you put the coleslaw right on the sandwich, the taste combination is perfection. This is a place where you come strictly for the food. My server, Andrea, was very sweet.

I live in the community and I have heard great reviews about Sammy's. My husband and I decided we would give it a try on a nice date night. I will tell you we were blown away by the food! The portions were huge and the price unbeatable. I got brisket and he got ribs; both were amazing. It is... More

This is a fantastic little joint. The BBQ is absolutely amazing...and falls off the fork to melt in your mouth. The steaks are superior and I LOVE the fries. All reasonable in price and ample portions!
