Sammy J’s Smokehouse and Catering

This locally owned and operated “mom-and-pop” restaurant officially opened to the public in March 2022. Since then, Sammy J’s Smokehouse and Catering has been wooing guests with downhome, fresh Southern cooking five days a week!

Diners can expect a variety of menu choices ranging from breakfast platters to blue plates to entrees—including all-day barbecue on Thursdays.

Besides regular dine-in service, they offer meal prep and catering services as well. For instance, if you have special dietary needs such as low carb or diabetic-friendly, they can help create well-balanced meals for you and your family.

The menu

Known for Southern-style barbecue, that’s not all Sammy J’s Smokehouse and Catering specializes in.

In fact, the menu features a wide variety of fine foods including steaks, pork loin, burgers and salads. And that’s just what’s for dinner! There are also breakfast and lunch menus too.

Plus, there are often weekend dinner specials that star fresh fish like pan-seared salmon over roasted corn and sauteed spinach, for example.

Remember to save room for dessert. Click here for a mouthwatering image of Sammy J’s bread pudding. It’s made in-house with buttermilk biscuits, served with vanilla bean ice cream and a bourbon sauce. Yum!
