Best known for: Great barbecue and expansive views with floor-to-ceiling windows.
Don’t miss: Daily smoked ribs, brisket, pork and chicken. Save room for the legendary Sam’s bread pudding.

Deemed as the “best BBQ on a mountain” by locals, Sam's Smokehouse features Texas-, Carolina- and St. Louis-style BBQ with a wall of windows that take in spectacular views of Mount Daly and the surrounding backcountry.

Take a break from the slopes and indulge at the quick stop café and dedicated espresso bar. Or take a load off at lunch time in the lovely dining room with friendly, sit-down service. Here you will dive into barbecue-style smokehouse meats as well as a variety of other Southern-style delights like fried green tomatoes, hearty salads and soups.
