“Have eaten their a few times, no consistency”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

The first couple of times were ok, Good red potatoes, Home made corned beef hash and decent biscuits....Literally had to wring out my potatoes last week with a napkin to soak up the grease...UCK The service was curt and bordering ron rude...I don't think I will try lunch there. Too bad.

I love this place. Their breakfast was amazing and a great value. I highly recommend! The staff was wonderful and the omelets are great. A good place to take the family or if you are traveling with kids!

“Good omelettes!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

Yummy denver omelette here. They leave a carafe of coffee, which is always nice. French toast was average - they maple syrup seemed watery.

“Best Club Sandwich We've Ever Eaten!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

. . . and we've eaten a LOT of club sandwiches. Some people look for the tastiest clam chowder, others are on a quest to find the best fish and chips--our mission has been to find the most delicious and well-made Club Sandwich. We need not look any further. The toast was done just right--properly browned and "toasty", but not so crispy that it hurts your gums to bite into it. Specifically the turkey was moist and actually had the consistency and taste of real turkey, not the pressed meat that a lot of restaurants use. And of course this restaurant uses the most wonderful bacon--it's not unusual for us to drive 150 miles round trip to dine at this restaurant quite specifically for their bacon. The French fries which we ordered on the side were not only seasoned just right, they were also wonderfully crispy on the outside and had just the right consistency on the inside. Lastly, we enjoy the very eclectic interior decorations and cozy feel of this family restaurant. On the Monday afternoon we were there, our cashier was an older woman who was absolutely delightful and so eager to please. When not cashiering, she helped the wait staff with various tasks. The restaurant is conveniently located on Hwy 101--you can't miss the tiger on top of the building. We've eaten at Lil' Sambo's many times and have never had a bad meal, and we'll keep going back.

“Great place good value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

Great place to eat. Right on 101 good food. Great service. They have a crab omelet that is out of this world. Tons of crab in it. Expensive but worth it.
