Has both American and Mexican food, but favoring the Mexican palate! My son and wife like Mexican so when they came to visit I picked Samano's to try! Pleasantly surprised! I tried two different Mexican entrees and both were quite good! My son and daughter-in-law also enjoyed it and they visit Cabo... read more

The food was to be expected, so-so, but our waitress was lazy and inept. Left dirty dishes on the table, handed the tray over the table so I could get my glass of water from it, no offer of refills, no coffee/dessert offering, sat at the bar eating and drinking with no check back, threw dum-dum suckers on the table...

Not the Samano's I grew up with. The portions seem small and they seem to have lost the old family recipes and authenticity on some of the menu items. I can tell they are using shortcuts on Grandma's recipes. I guess it's ok if you're new, but I'd rather go somewhere else. Sorry M.

We have enjoyed this restaurant for over 40 years ! The food is reliably good !! The guacamole, chips and salsa are delicious……..the margaritas are some of the best in town !!

I've heard some good things about Samanos and, when I went there a few years ago, the food was pretty good. However, I did not enjoy my dinner there last night. I ordered the taco, enchilada and tamale dinner. Everything was overly salty, the chicken was dry and they put some sauteed pork over the tamale that tasted like it... More

The free chips and salsa were a great way to start the meal. There was ALOT of cumin in the salsa and it was quite spicy and fantastic. I had the small chimichanga and it was large and delish us. My associate had a combo platter and he liked it a lot also. The only down side was that i... More

The food is good and reasonable, if you want a quick Mexican meal without the high price and friendly staff, try this one in a historic building, be prepared for hard seats that are uncomfortable.

Absolutely the worst Mexican place in Cudahy! The food was tasteless, and Didnt taste fresh. The service was probably just as bad as the food. I think the margaritas were the only "ok" part of our visit.. overall I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone.
