“Great place to eat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014 via mobile

I have been eating at Sam's for 45 years starting at the 15th and Champa/Curtis in downtown Denver. The food is excellent, the staff is interesting and the atmosphere is great. I now go to #3 and am never disappointed.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

Increrdible breakfast but plan on waiting awhile unless you are there very very early. The kitchen sink will definitley NOT disappoint.

“Loved this place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2014

Been to breakfast here several times. Food is consistently good, prices are fair, portions are huge. The only downside is that on weekends the place is so popular that you have to wait. But the wait really is worth it (and I hate to wait).

“Long wait but great food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 4, 2014 via mobile

Every time we go for breakfast there's always a long wait for a table but the food is YUMMY and the portions are HUGE! If you have time to kill and don't mind the long wait, it's a must try.

“Great breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2014

One of the best breakfasts in town. Have ate here multiple times and never disappointed. My favorite is the Kitchen Sink Skillet, which is just like it sounds. It has everything.
