While we have often enjoyed Sam Diego's in the past we had a terrible experience which trumps those visits. My wife has celiac disease and must avoid gluten, or else she will get terribly ill for 3 - 4 days. She is always very explicit when ordering at a restaurant and was again today. She ordered a quesadilla from their... More

The bar staff is first class and they make the best drinks around. Food is average but they give you more then you can eat. The outdoor area has been upgraded and a good alternative to eating inside. Also a great spot for large groups there's plenty of room.

Went to Sams for lunch one afternoon in Hyannis. Our party of 4 all opted for the lunch taco bar which also included a couple of soups and a chile. Some cold beer and margaritas started us off at our table on the patio on a beautiful sunny afternoon. We were all thoroughly happy with our afternoon at Sams. Good... More

We visited this restaurant while on vacation in Cape Cod. Our server, Mary Ann, was attentive and accommodating of my food allergies. I was provided with a gluten free menu, and I had the BBQ pork quesadillas. The quesadillas were excellent! We also ordered nachos, and the nachos were adjusted so that I could also eat the appetizer with my... More

Sam Diego's in Hyannis has a nice atmosphere. We where welcomed by the hostess and seated promptly. The server greeted us and brought over chips and salsa. The menu has a wide variety and plenty to choose from. We had a party of four and everyone enjoyed there meal. We would absolutely visit Sam's again!

Was looking for some mexican food and heard an ad on the radio. The parking lot was packed so I thought this would be a great place. It was just so so. It's a comfy atmosphere but the food is mediocre.

We have enjoyed Sam Diego's over the years. It is a fine facility to bring a family to for a moderate priced meal. The dining room is comfortable, the waitstaff adequately attentive. We enjoyed burritos and Dos Equis beers at our latest meal The chips were plentiful and fresh topped with a tasty sauce. This is a reasonably priced facility... More
