Breakfast and beer, just right!

Came to Sam's No.3 during a short vacation based on reviews found online. They did not disappoint. I had a few Alaskan Amber drafts with my Kitchen Sink Omelette. I got French toast for the side (no extra charge) with whipped cream on top. My girlfriend got the meatloaf dinner. Both meals were... read more

Went to Sam's No. 3 for breakfast with a friend. Thought that it was something amazing since it was featured on Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives. It was Sunday so of course there was a wait. We went to the bar and ordered a Bloody Mary, It was so strong and spicy I couldn't even drink it. I tried toning it... More

Yes more than likely you will have to wait for a table but it's worth it. I have been numerous times and from breakfast to salads and all in-between; I've never had a bad meal. The service is always wonderful.

Sam's is a big, busy, noisy diner with a good selection of food on the menu. There is something for everyone, the prices are reasonable and the servings are generous. Their green chili is wonderful! We usually go for breakfast and once you get seated, the service is quick and the coffee is smooth. This place is popular so plan... More

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. The staff was great and the food was also great. I am sorry that I only had time for breakfast. The owner brought the 3 chills they do. The... More

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
