This distinctly patriotic fast-casual restaurant has won the honor of hosting “Sam’s Centennial Cook-Off: A Salute to All Cook-Offs but Mostly Barbecue,” a competition fit for all patriots and pit masters. The contest brings a variety of classic backyard barbecue selections from across the country together to battle it out for Sam’s top award.

On the menu are BBQ dishes such as Kansas City smoked chicken, Memphis dry-rub pork ribs, North Carolina chopped smoked pork butt, and a Texas beef brisket sandwich – *slaps knee* WEE DOGGY that sounds GOOD. For those looking for a lighter option, the Power Greens Salad is a great choice, too, with fresh citrus fruit, sunflower seeds, dried cranberries, and radishes drizzled with a fresh citrus vinaigrette and topped with chilled pulled chicken. There is also a delicious plant-based BBQ Jackfruit Burger served on garlic toast.
