I've eaten here at least 3 times. Their margaritas are very good, & it seems they're always having some sort of deal on them. The Mexican food I've had has been very good. My friend gets burgers & has been happy with them. We commented last time we went that we've never gotten something there that we didn't like. Service... More

This place seems pretty interchangeable with other Mexican chain restaurants. Kind of like "you've seen one, you've seen them all..." Sammy's boasts a local independent owner, but there is nothing about this place to distinguish it from any other Mexican chain restaurant. You get the usual chips and salsa when you are seated but the salsa is bland - possibly... More

My parents decided to take myself and my two small children out to dinner and we choose Sammy's because of its diverse menu. We were seated promptly and drink orders taken they provided a basket of chips along with some salsa. We were one of four groups seated at the restaurant at the time it was 5:30pm. The food was...

Place was nice, ok selection in beers . Salsa tasted like tomato sauce not spicy at all. For fried foods they do ok . Really nothing here stood out just had an average experience. I would come back though if that means anything. There is one in Blue Ash that blows this place away. Well worth the drive if you... More

Met friends here for a birthday lunch. The margaritas were superb. The lunch menu offered many different things to choose from. I had the #1 (don't recall its real name) and it was fantastic. I would definitely eat here again.

The food is awful, but the service??? White trash serving re-heated Taco bell. If I was ten years younger I could see myself getting in a fight with the manager. Who would probably call the police if scared. This place needs to go out of biz. Never. Never. Never take your family there.

This was my first visit at Sammy's and though the service was fine, the food was awful. As a vegetarian, I ordered the pinto bean burger, which was completely flavor-less, the shredded lettuce on top was the most noticable flavor. My husband ordered the fish tacos, which come with the fish on top of 3 open tortillas with the toppings... More

The place is beautiful and clean. The hostess and servers are professional and attentive. I saw the bus boy scratch his scalp twice in 10minutes, then watched him deliver chips to a table. The quality of the Mexican food was one level above taco bell, maybe two. I can't speak for the burgers, since I didn't try one. I won't... More

Slow service, food is fair, they will make no substitutions whatsoever. Margaritas are from a mix and taste like it.

I've been to Sammy's three times. The first time I had one of their hamburgers, which was average. The second time I had one of their Mexican dishes, which was below average. The third time I had another below average dish.
