Houston Press' Description

Since moving from its old location across the Katy Freeway a few years back, Sam's has spiffed up a bit but hasn't lost that scruffy charm that has always encouraged kids in wet bathing suits to ride their bikes over during the daily noon closure at the local swimming pools to get a scoop of ice cream, construction workers to take their lunch breaks in its booths or businessmen to tuck their tie into their shirts before digging into a greasy jalape├▒o cheeseburger. Grab a shake made from Blue Bell ice cream and crispy onion rings or marvelously crunchy seasoned fries to go with your burger.

    This place has awesome cheap burgers.

  • Michael E. on 12/24/11

    A longtime Houston staple from when they were little known north of I-10 to booming in popularity. Recently expanded the space and the menu. Flat out best quality to price burger/deli joint in Hou.
