Sammy’s is a melting pot of a restaurant located in Castroville, Texas that serves everything from steaks, to seafood, to burgers and more. It was originally founded as an ice house in 1948 by Leon Tschirhart, who received the land from his father, August. Before serving two years in Korea for the Army in 1955, Leon’s brother, Sammy, helped him establish the business, and after returning, he took over the business and remodeled it into a full-service restaurant. Sammy’s is deeply-rooted in its community, with dedicated employees who have remained loyal to the business anywhere from 20-30 years, and sourcing practices that prioritize local markets. They serve visitors from breakfast to dinner and are famous for their nachos topped with cheese, onions, and crispy jalapenos, and spicy hot wings.
