Great food with reasonable prices. Fast & friendly service. The menu is large and so are the portions. Bring your appetite! Or plan on take home boxes.

A crowd gathers each Saturday morning outside Sam's. It could because Guy Fieri featured Sam's on Food Network's Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives. It could be because the menu includes a ground buffalo skillet. But I think its because its a cool venue.

We wanted to find some of the Mexican food that Denver is famous for on the way to the airport. Sam's did not disappoint. Be sure to try the green chili. We had chili releno and chicken enchiladas and left Denver happy.

I was wary walking in, the table was a bit dirty and sticky. But my server was attentive to my needs and the food was pleasant.
