We are old friends who get together for lunch now and then, and Samantha's is one of our favorite places: when was the last time you ever ordered enchiladas or Tacos and received something truly special? I had settled into a routine of getting Samantha's...More

We were just trying to avoid traffic and find dinner. Google showed Samantha's Restaurant as an option and we tried it. Our table wobbled and the table setting method of putting a large sheet of paper over the tablecloth was a bit odd. The tables...More

One of the best small little restaurants in the Silver Spring area. I have been here several times and the food has always been excellent. Parking can be an issue at certain times and there is no reservations so the wait time for a table...More

Our family of three went for dinner. This is a Mexican fine dining restaurant and well worth the Uber ride or drive from downtown Silver Spring MD. The restaurant has the typical Mexican food you’d expect, as well as specialized beef, chicken, and pork dishes....More

Samantha has been a cut above the usual Tex-Mex place for years. I most often get the Ceviche (plain, not the mixto) and a Corona. Today's wasn't quite up to the standard of the past, bit maybe that's because it was busier than usual. Still...More

Out of all the restaurants we have tried in Silver Spring, we like this one the best! Warm salsa that is made fresh daily, excellent dishes that excite the taste buds, and great drinks will keep you coming back for more. Definitely enjoyed our meal!

On March 19, 2018, we visited Samantha's Mexican Restaurant. What a delightful surprise. I ordered the shrimp and scallops enchiladas, and my husband had the chicken burrito. There were large scallops and shrimp, instead of tiny pieces hidden by cheaper vegetables. My husband's burrito was...More

Food lacked flavor though it appeared in plentiful quantities. Service was very pleasant and efficient.

For years, I've relied on Samantha's for better-than-usual Mexican meals. In recent times they've been getting better both on the food and the service sides. Service continued on the ascendant today, food took a tiny step back. I'll still keep coming, but I may check...More

Samantha's is an amazing restaurant, with extremely reasonable prices. I love the carne asada, which is always cooked perfectly. The guac is always fresh and delicious, and the margaritas are also great. Other favorites include the steak enchiladas and burritos. Good mix of both Mexican...More
