Was driving by and noticed the sign, "Unaccompanied children get an expresso and a kitten" and said it has to be great with a sign like that. Went in for breakfast.

We had a BBQ sandwich and grilled chicken sandwich. Also ordered tater tots with cheese and chips and salsa. Service was very fast and server was exceptionally friendly. Sandwiches were tasty and large portions. It's a fun atmosphere and I would definitely visit again.

Sam's has a grand variety of food for a grand variety of people. The service is always very good, very friendly and pretty fast. The breakfast is a good bet, expecially eggs benedict. The mexican food is huge and just okay. Soups are always good and hot. It's always busy and a little loud... Plan on waiting for a table,... More

We ate there for dinner and half the people had breakfast, and the other half had mexican dinner food. Everything was very tasty, and well prepared. The place was really busy, but our service was pretty quick. Waitress was excellent.

Sams has the best food at reasonable prices! It was my first visit here. I saw it on the food channel and had to try for myself. I advise to look ahead online at the menu before going because this menu is a book! Food was great! Staff was extremely friendly! I highly recommend the eggs Benedict it was so... More

We've eaten many times at all three Sam's locations in the Denver area, and this one is the best. Easy access, lots of parking, friendly efficient fast service, reasonable prices, and did I say great comfort food? Menu has all kinds of food, breakfast is served any time, many choices for lunches, dinners, and various ethnic cuisine dishes, so you... More

Went with a friend and it was very enjoyable. Previously went with family and It was mobbed. I definitely suggest calling ahead to get on the waitlist due to how crowded it consistently get. Well worth the wait no matter what.

We were referred by the desk clerk at the Radisson. She deserves a raise for this one. We went for brunch. We consider ourselves experts on green chili and this is some of the best. Both our meals were great. Server was very accommodating and cheerful. We asked to wait for a table on the patio and were seated in... More
