I stopped in on my own, and the owner sat at the table next to mine and chatted with me while I ate. I learned a lot about the Lompoc area. The menu is limited, but what they do offer is delicious. I highly recommend the place, not only for their food, but for the company.

I am not that familiar with Filipino food but what my wife and I ordered was delicious. It is a small family run place and our food was cooked by the wife and served by her husband. He took a lot of time answering questions about the menu and was very interested in how we enjoyed our meal. I always... More

I have eaten a lot of lumpia in my day but this is the best I've ever had. All the veggies are crisp and wonderful - the flavor delicate and the texture simply perfect.

You don't see too many Filipino restaurants so I had to try. It's a small place run by a couple. They were really nice and friendly. Nothing fancy inside, but the food was very good. I had the chicken and pork adobo and loved it!

We are not familiar with Philipino food and based on TA's reviews, decided to give this restaurant a try. Facility is located in a strip mall and is unpretentious, but food and service were excellent. Staff were very friendly, helpful and patient at explaining the choices we had questions about. Will return next time in Lompoc.

We had just returned to Lompoc after exploring the Guadalupe Nipomo Dunes and were ready for an early dinner. Samantha's Fillipino-American Diner has a nice friendly tropical vibe! The owner welcomed my husband and I and treated us like family. He introduced his wife and daughter and told us the whole history of the restaurant. The chicken combo plate was... More

Found this place using Yelp having just arrived in town from a long bike ride. I was welcomed by the owner and chef, Lida. She made me feel at home. Rather than going over the menu, Lida described some of what she makes - as my knowledge of Filipino cuisine is limited - and sat me down. I just trusted... More

Where can you get a great meal for $10.50? Add a glass of Chardonnay, a rich Leche Flan dessert, and the total comes to around $20.00. This is the best value I've had so far on my 10-day business trip. They offer a combo for Americans who have never tried Fillipino food, and it includes chicken that has been marinated... More

My husband and I just moved to the area and saw this place as we scouted around town, promised ourselves to come back later that day for dinner. Glad we did! Food was not only great, inexpensive and plentiful enough to take lots home for the next day's lunch (he got chicken adobo combo, I did pork, both came with... More
