We wanted to go to Sam’s No 3 again this year, but our schedule for the day did not put us back in downtown near dinnertime. Since we were staying in nearby Aurora near the airport we decided to just go to the Sam’s No 3 in Aurora. We arrived in the early evening to find that the restaurant surprisingly... More

Such a large menu. Mexican food good. The gyros were very good too. Love the breakfast burittos. I always need a doggie bag since the servings are so large. The place is always packed and you need to wait, but it is worth it.

I have reviewed several of these Denver restaurants. This one is at Parker and Havana in Aurora, in very Southeast Denver. It's really loud, because everybody is having a great time. Sam's has a big menu with lots of variety for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Everything is served piping hot, the food is consistently good, the service is efficient, the... More

As a business lunch can run the whole gamut of tastes Sams #3 has never disappointed. The food is fresh, the staff pleasant, and the food wholesome in generous proportions. The greek is especially good..... I think the recipes comes from the home country....plus the mexican is some of the best around. Its pretty much a diner that spread out.... More

Food was unusual - good, but not great. My Grandson loved the Green Chili Mexi-Burger because he's a fan of Diner, Drive-ins and Dives. My husband liked his burrito....I had a salad that was mostly Iceberg Lettuce. I'm not such a fan of white lettuce. But it was a FUN place to go with a teenager!!!

This is one of my favorite restaurants in the Denver area. The service is terrific and the food is delicious. Their green chili is amazing! Everything is fresh and the portions are huge. The desserts are also great. My favorite is the coconut pie. I try to go here at least once a week.

The food was a little above average and the portions were huge. We were there for happy hour and while we drank no alcohol we did take advantage of the half price appetizers. My wife and daughter took over half there meals home and I was completely stuffed. The atmosphere was that of a local diner were the waitresses seemed... More

Just about every time we go to Sam's 3 there's a long wait. They move people pretty fast. However , the lines keep growing and growing. I that's because the food is delicious and the prices are very reasonable. My husband loves Mexican food, he goes to Mexican restaurants all over town. I have often suggested that he try the... More

I've never had a bad experience at any Sam's location but this one is our favorite as it's close to family. The chili rellenos breakfast is what my wife gets all the time, that green chili is so good! Everything always comes out hot and pretty fast even when they are busy, and they always seem to be busy.

At Sammy's, you get your money worth. The food is always excellent. Our personal favorite is anything with green chili on it. The service is always great and the servers always have a great attitude. A trip to the Denver area would not be complete without eating at Sammy's.
