It has been a roller-coaster few months for Sam’s Super Samwiches. In October, the founder of the eatery, Sammy Graphos, passed away. A few weeks later in November, the Graphos family announced their lease had not been renewed. As a result,  they started seeking a new location.

One of the Birmingham area’s favorite hot dog/burger/sandwich establishments, Sam’s Super Samwiches (sometimes erroneously called Sam’s Super Sandwiches) was a former Sneaky Pete’s location in downtown Homewood. In the early 70s, Pete‘s brother Sam converted the hot dog joint to a short-order sandwich shop.

A mainstay in Homewood for nearly five decades, Homewood numerous residents were upset about Sam’s Super Samwiches’ pending departure.

What a difference a few months makes. Welcome back Sam’s Super Samwiches! See you in February 2022!
