This place is always packed. It's been around for years, and there were obviously lots of regulars. The Mexican food was good -- nothing out of this world, but not bad considering the variety of food on the menu. It's fun for a family meet-up; it gets loud and chaotic, but it's entertaining as opposed to annoying.

Our go to place for breakfast burritos. One of the best burgers I've ever had. This restaurant has been around so long for a reason.

Honestly, why do people love this place so much? I've had breakfast 4 times here and its never seemed that remarkable to me. The portions are not that large and the food is not that remarkable. Still its not a bad place and I did like the service each time. I just feel like I must be missing something since... More

First time there and the Burger was huge. I would go back again without any problem. Prices are very comparable to other eateries.

This long time establishment was recommended by friends when we visited the Denver area. The place has a nice rustic flavor and the wait staff is really good. The food portions are really large, so bring a good appetite. All food orders were served quickly and piping hot. The menu is quite large and if new to this restaurant it... More

My friends and I (party of 6) showed up 30 minutes prior to the kitchen closing. Oops we really lost track of time. However, due to this slight inconvenience to the staff, they did not rush us out and where very warm the whole time. Our table ordered several of the humongous breakfast burritos, BBBBBLAT sandwich (5pc of yummy bacon,... More

The burgers were awesome! Fast friendly service! 2 of us tried burgers 1 ordered breakfast. None of us were disappointed. We went around 1 pm on a Thursday and had to wait 15 minutes for a booth. Worth the wait!

We came here today, Sunday, at 1pm. Waited about 30 minutes for a booth. The service comes with a smile and it's good. The menu is huge; there is something for everyone. But the quality just wasn't there. My husband said his Bloody Mary was bad. My Mimosa was ok. His coney dogs were decent, chili-cheese fries were average. I... More

I do love me some Sam's #3. It's my go to place when I have no idea what I am really in the mood for. They have it all! Great burgers, green chili, amazing breakfasts, salads and my favorite... Grilled Ham and Cheddar on Sourdough with homemade chips. Usually always busy from open to close. Rarely have I been here... More
