Went here with family and enjoyed the staff & atmosphere. Food presented in very generous portions. Had to get a big to go box. Service was fast and efficient. I actually changed my mind on something after the order was already taken, and waiter had no off-site when I asked for that change. Recommend this or any of the other... More

Very Casual, outside and or inside eating. We chose to go late afternoon when it was less busy. I had the Steak Fajitas my wife had chili releno, both very generous portions, and very good comfort food. Pleasant wait staff. Although neither of us require GF, it was available on many of the favorites. Primarily Mexican, greek and southwest fare.... More

When you want something for everyone and great service to boot, go here! It can get a little crowded and you may have a wait but it's worth it. Our family loves Sam's!!

Busy local restaurant has a wide menu, features breakfast all day delivers good, down home American fare. Portions are huge and the service is quick and efficient. The line moves quickly so don't be discouraged if there is a wait. They usually beat the estimate on the time to wait.
