This spot is small but serves wonderful food. Breakfasts are huge and quick. The upstairs has room for a larger group and the Chinese food is delicious. The staff is very friendly and accomodating. They also deliver.

From the friendly welcome at the door to the grateful 'thanks' when leaving, it's no surprise that this place is popular. The Chinese lunch buffet had good variety or you can order of the menu. Custom dishes were not a problem.

We ate a couple of lunch and dinner meals at Sam & Lee's as part of a birding tour group. Both times we dined in the upstairs room. Although the decor seems to be stuck in the 1970's, the food was better than we expected...More
