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.

My wife and I just finished some training and had our toddler with us. We were discussing lunch and saw Sam's No. 3. We had no idea there was one in Aurora. The wait as 10-15, which is seemed really good for a Saturday @ 12pm. Our waitress was amazing. Today was the day our oldest (2.5 y.o.) decided he... More

This is my second visit to a Sam's No. 3 restaurant, first at this location. It has a relaxed, fun atmosphere. The waitresses were very nice, patient and helpful. The servings are large for a good price. I ordered a breakfast plate for lunch. It was very good, fresh tasting and still warm when served.

What a cool place. There are so many options on the menu to choose from. I had the meatloaf and my husband had the burrito. The food was tasty and the portions quite large. Our server, Mara Belle, was a real sweetheart. She was very informative on the history of the place and made our experience enjoyable.

Diner food is easy to come by. There are places off of every highway across the nation where a hungry traveler can grab something to eat. But, it's the rare treat to find a place that doesn't just make a burger but makes a burger you compare other burgers to. Or creates a stack of pancakes that simply cannot be... More

Been coming here for about 20 years. Crazy on Friday mornings but the food is great and I always have to talk myself out of my 2 favorites (breakfast burrito) and the huevos rancheros. Sometimes I get an omelet but the green chile is too good to pass up! The place is completely local with some of their combos named... More

We love going here for breakfast! Depending on when you go, though, you could have to wait for a table.
