Deer Vibes performing at Sam’s Burger Joint

WINNER: Sam's Burger Joint

330 E. Grayson St. • (210) 223-2830

Perhaps most well-known as the go-to Americana spot in San Antonio, Sam's Burger Joint is far more. The things these walls have seen. The instances of cultural advocacy, from conjunto forebears to rock 'n' roll icons, the evenings of drunken revelry — begging the gods, wine glass sloshing in hand, for an answer to the eternal, burning question "Hey baby, qué pasó?" The ever-rotating, often returning cast of blue-collar bands playing Monday through Sunday, grinding for a little piece of that sweet pie called regional success. Sam's is a haven for local legends and a springboard for those that hope to be. From its early days as a punk club, hosting some of the first Girl in a Coma gigs alongside the UK Subs, The Undead and other local, national and international notables, Sam's has provided San Antonio with one of the most sincere mid-level venues in the region. Clearly, y'all agree.
