Meet my friend Sam. Sam has been selling the world's best hot dogs in downtown Homewood for close to 40 years! Sam and his wife Sue are two of my dearest friends, but I can be totally impartial when it comes to rating his dogs. Everybody south of town knows Sam's Super Samwiches. It's one of those shotgun hot dog stands that has customers standing elbow to elbow during rush hour. A few years ago he got real fancy and put some metal chairs and tables outside on the sidewalk. Paris meets Homewood I guess. Oh and I almost forgot, along with the best hot dogs, hamburgers, sandwiches and chili, you also get a friendly greeting and a chance to visit with Sam (if he's not off playing golf) and his team of "dog slingers". In addition to feeding hungry customers Sam, has a heart of gold and generous spirit, giving so much back to our community. He is a treasure for sure. Sam's Super Samwiches, a little slice of Americana. Now I've made myself hungry. I'm off to get a "Special"- all the way...or maybe a slaw dog...or a hamburger might be good ...........
