Yelper Eric S., who reviewed Sam's Texas Sub Shop on June 28, wrote, "It's honestly probably the only place you can still get a homemade sub. [I] would give it 10 stars if I could."

Adam B. noted, "Don't drive by too quickly, or you might miss this place. The service is incredibly friendly, first and foremost...The brisket sandwich came with cheese, peppers and onions. The meat was shredded and juicy; it had clearly been cooked for a long time."
