Been going here for about twenty years. Never had a bad meal, service is usually excellent, it's a favorite. Last couple visits have been...disappointing. I don't know if they've had a change of ownership or there's a new manager or a new chef or what. Chicken in the chicken fajita salad was small, ratty, and tasted dark and heavy, not... More

I would say this was Tex-mex. They had chips and salsa...chips were great, hot and fresh. They had fajitas with lots of flavor and enchiladas filled with barbecue. Lots of touristy Mexican style things sitting around and mango daiquiri tasted great! Loved the sugar on the rim.

Not sure how long it has been here but drove by and made a note to try it at the start of our week in Hyannis. Went for dinner and loved the place. Great atmosphere and decor. Very family friendly. Looked like they had a nice outdoor seating area in the back, as well, but we staying inside. Service was... More

Started with a margarita, followed with a burrito from the specials menu. My wife had the fajita salad. Dinner was delicious! Highly recommend!

Nothing outstanding, but good place to get out of the blazing sun for good Margaritas and Beers. Food was good/average. Little pricey, but every place is in the summer.

All the food we had was very tasty and had very large portions. Fajitas were among the best I have ever had. Friendly staff, and some unusual and very tasty drinks.

We recently ate here on our vacation, as I saw it listed on places to eat in Cape Cod, and being from Texas, I adore TexMex food. The chips and salsa were very good. We had the fajitas, chimichanga and tacos. All our choices were fantastic. The restaurant was packed, but we didn't have to wait to long for a... More

Wonderful Mexican restaurant in Hyannis. Great burritos and enchiladas with endless warm chips. Waitress was extremely friendly and efficient. Atmosphere was outstanding and looked like a Mexican cantina. Plenty of parking and centrally located. Prices are very reasonable and they have an all you can eat taco bar for under $8 with two soups, salad, taco fixings, and hard shell... More

Mexican restaurants can come and go, but Sam Diego's has been around as long as I can remember. And it's always been reliably good. When a bit of south-of-the-border makes your mouth water, you won't go wrong on cape Cod by heading for Sam Diego's.
