Sam's No. 3 is a fine place for a quick meal in a hurry. If you like straight-forward diner food this is the place for you. If you are looking for a more upscale meal you might to look elsewhere. Not bad just not very fancy!

Sam's No. 3 is one of the best restaurants in Aurora. Featured on Food Network's Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, the green chile is really excellent, as are all the other dishes. This restaurant has never served us an inferior meal. The iced tea is fresh brewed, too.

Do not come here to eat healthy. Do plan for a wait. Try the Mac and Cheese burrito. It is a great Aurora haven. Wait staff is friendly and on the ball. The one downtown isn't as good. Come here first.

Sams#3 in Aurora is a hoot to go to. Simply put, the food is good, the portions are massive, and the service is friendly. Their menu is very very extensive, especially in the breakfast section. And did I mention the portions are huge? :) This place is a bit of a throwback from a 1950's diner, but updated (a tish)... More
