Food there isn't all that great but it has two or 3 large bars that you can sit at with pretty good drinks. Just not a place to eat Mexican food.

We've gone to Sam's ever since it opened and keep coming back. Warm environment, friendly waitstaff, good drinks, good salsa & guacamole, and reliable, tasty, mildly spiced Mexican food. Over the years, menu has expanded, and now includes more healthy options, as well as delicious, but artery clogging, steaks, ribs, burgers, & fries. There are chicken, fish, shrimp, four pure...

We drove by this place a few times on our way to various attractions, and finally decided to stop in. Glad we did! It was very busy but we waited in the waiting room only about 10 minutes. Sat at our table and ordered drinks. The menu is huge! So are the portions! And for a reasonable price yet! The... More

We met friends here for an early dinner. Food was good. I'd stay away from the Red Sangria as its not that great. Our server actually took it off our bill & I got a margarita instead & it was very good! The taco salad is different than ones we are use to getting, so before ordering ask your server... More

Sam Diego's is just OK- it's your basic corporate Massachusetts Mexican/Tex Mex food. It's a nice place to go with the kids and friends who may shy away from the real deal. The menu is varied and includes plenty of options for everyone.

A friend suggested we try this restaurant while we were on vacation and I am glad they did. The food was great and the price was good also. The service was amazing.

Wanted to do Mexican food with friends and based on Trip Advisor ratings, we chose Sam Diego's over a nearby competitor. I hadn't been here in many, many years and forgot how big it is inside. It was quite busy the night we went, but we were seated right away. Our waiter was "Noah" and he was great. He had... More

We came here after a fun day at the beach and a stroll around Hyannis. It was packed but we were seated right away. The food came fairly quickly. My son got fajitas and he said they were good- but they didn't give him a plate to prepare the fajitas on... he was on his 3rd before the waitress came... More

I've been coming here since they opened. Still a family favorite after all these years! Great drinks and desserts. They even have a great variety of non-mexican foods for those who aren't fans!
