Sammy Walker's Barbecue

6201 Dalrock Rd.
Rowlett, TX, 75088, United States
TEL: (972) 463-6595

Housed in a standalone red-brick building, this casual barbecue joint is the namesake restaurant of U.S. Olympic weightlifting champion Sammy Walker. The no-frills dining room is designed in a cafeteria style, with simple furniture and walls hung with photographs of Olympic athletes. Slow-cooked over local hickory wood, the Texas-style barbecue includes brisket, baby back ribs, and the house specialty German sausage. All barbecue plates come with Texas toast and two traditional sides, such as fried okra and mashed sweet potatoes. Sammy is often on-site, manning the rotisserie smoker and making recommendations for first-time customers.

Insider Tip:

After your meal, take advantage of the restaurant’s location near Lake Ray Hubbard and spend the afternoon boating, fishing, or shopping along the shorefront.
