I miss the employees and the food. Unlike what others said, I found the waitresses (and even Bruce) to be very friendly. When they were busy, they would hustle to get the food out quickly. It was one of my favorite places to go.

Have been in there after church several times. While the food was good, the owners just aren't friendly and treat you like you are in a diner in Brooklyn. Food is authentic though.

Good food for many years. Will be closing due to owners personal and health reasons. Many of the clientele will be sad to see them go. Been going there for more than 25 years.

The sandwiches are great of course but I just love the chicken kreplach soup. You just have to give it a try.

Remember the days when a meal took hours to prepare and cook. This place offers all those dishes that your grandmother used to cook on Sunday after church. Wonderful food. Freshly cooked. Give it a try; you'll go back soon. A warning: it is really hard to decide what to have because they serve such a variety of home cooked... More

Sam's Kosher Style is a go to restaurant for excellent sandwiches. A touch of New York in Fair Oaks. The tongue sandwich was outstanding as were the Reubens. We are from Las Vegas and enjoyed our lunch.

I have eaten here regularly for several years and tried a number of different items on the menu. I highly recommend their clam chowder (available on Fridays and Saturdays),-- loads of clams, and made with thick cream) french dip made with prime rib, reuben sandwich. If you are looking for something delicious but not so heavy, try the grilled chicken... More

I wanted to like it... mom and pop place that was a city staple, stuck in a time warp. Unfortunately, I was met at the door by dirty worn out carpeting, booth seats covered in large sections with old dirty rows of silver duct tape on red upholstery and tables that needed a good scrubbing. there was a large empty...

If you are looking for a new place to eat a meal Sam's Kosher Restaurant in Fair Oaks should be a priority. Located in a small commercial complex on Greenback Lane near Sunrise Mall this indiscreet restaurant has been a favorite of ours for many years. Parking is plentiful and convenient. Once you go inside the older but clean surroundings... More

My wife is a retired flight attendant and has raved for years about NY deli sandwiches. This summer we made it to the Carnegie Deli in NYC and I learned what she was talking about. We tried Sam's and it passed the test with flying colors. My wife was more conventional with pastrami while I went for the prime rib... More
