It's a place to go get some great stick to your ribs food with some local flavor to go. The waffles are awesome, the bacon crisp, the green chili fantastic. Anytime I'm in town I make it a point to eat here. Last time in...More

Sam's No. 3 has amazing food and the prices are very, very reasonable. The service is great. If you go, you should go early and expect to wait for a table. People love this restaurant so much they are always crowded. Worth the wait.

There is nothing like Sam's. It has been around forever and gets funkier every year. However, the food great. The menu goes on forever with "Sam created" dishes as well as standards and prices are good. This is not a place for a dress up...More

I apologize that we were not aware of this question until now! The Aurora location does have an outdoor patio. It will be mostly closed during the winter, but we do have heaters so on those warmer 60+ winter days, it may... More
