San Antonio scores new Southern franchise on Fredericksburg Road
Southern-fried fare continues its steady march into the Alamo City with a new restaurant set to open in the coming week.
The city’s first Sam’s Southern Eatery franchise will be located at 3825 Fredericksburg Road. It’s also the first Sam’s property in the portfolio of San Antonio franchisee Sam Abd. The Shreveport, Louisiana-based chain launched in 2008 and now has more than 50 store across nine states including nine other Texas outposts.

Sam’s Southern Eatery serves a menu of burgers, po’boy sandwiches, salads, fried seafood and fried chicken. Side dishes of okra, red beans and rice, mac and cheese and other Southern staples are also available.
Abd said extensive renovations at the nearly 4,000-square-foot property, previously home to Taqueria Lupitas and La Parrilla Azteca, are nearly complete. The new dining room will seat 120 customers, with a second 60-seat dining area to be completed in two months.
