don't think I'll be back

I had the carne asada "steak" in like an enchilada of some sort. The meat was disgusting. Horrible flavor and some pieces were very tough. With the new Chuy's going in across the road, no need to ever go back there!!

I predict this restaurant will not be around much longer. My husband and I went there with another couple last night. Our service was terrible. Our female server could not answer our questions about what wine they served other than to offer us the house wine and say their wine list was all wrong. We ordered drinks and soon ordered... More

I stopped by here on Sunday March 22 and arrived at 6:37 and got to the bar shortly after. There were about seven tables full in the bar with one person sitting at the bar. Two or three minutes later another couple came in and sat down at the bar. The UD game was on. The male server working clearly... More

We reserved Sammy's Party Room for our family holiday party. Five families from two states! We had spoken to the manager twice regarding to reservation that was made more than a week ahead. One hour prior to our reservation time we received a call from Sammy's telling us there was a mix-up & we no longer had the room, someone... More

The first time we ate here, I liked the burger. Not much else I would remember. The second time I tried a Mexican entree. Very unflavorful and cool food. I expect Mexican to have a modicum amount of spice, but the pollo loco was bland chicken breast with about 1 tsp of crema on top. It's a good place for... More

Good options, my husband got the fajitas and they only give you 3 tortillas and charge you $1 for more. Seems like a ripoff. Otherwise ok.

My wife and I dine at Sammy's regularly. Food is excellent. The service has always been outstanding. The burgers are delicious and cooked to order. I love their fries. I love their chicken enchiladas and chicken fajitas. Happy hour is an excellent time to get an oversized drink with your meal.

My family has been coming to this restaurant since it opened. We were regulars for a few years. But in the past year this place has become a restaurant to avoid. The service is AWFUL because poor management has run the decent servers off. We had one tonight who tried to double charge us for a special order item -... More
