With Sam’s son Jake handling the front of the house and Sam’s wife Brenda keeping his soul alive in the kitchen, it feels as though some things never change.

“He was my mentor, I guess you could say,” Brenda says.

Brenda is cooking up all your finger-licking favorites as taught to her by Sam with some of her own flare, like beautiful ribs lathered in spices, brown sugar, and hard apple cider.

Or try Sam’s homemade chicken and waffles- with a few dashes of cinnamon sugar and a hot crispy crunchy chicken, served with mac and cheese, collard greens and cornbread, it’s a place to call home.
