Great!!!

After reading a Yelp review we decided to try this. So glad we did great people own it and the food is authentic filipino not fusion. Cooked fresh they use local produce as much as possible. Also love supporting local places. Highly recommend this great little place!

Both my husband and I had a combination plate. I had pork adobo, lumpia and he had the chicken. We both enjoyed our meals very much and look forward to going back. But equally as important as the good food was the excellent friendly couple who run Samantha's. They are a delight and extremely helpful and fun to talk to.... More

We LOVE this place...what a find! Family-run, everything cooked to order and fresh. The chicken adobo and lumpia were outstanding...I recommend the combo plate. Hours can be sketchy and they often close early if there is no business so try to get there before 9:00 PM. We go as often as we can and enjoy a good meal and good... More

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
