“Okay”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

Prices were good.... The original Sambo's was better. Food was okay, the service though was sub-par. If you can put up with the lack of service and ambience of the meals....in other words, if its all about price....you'll like it. Otherwise I would say try somewhere else.

“Don't Let the Name Fool You”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

There is good history behind Lil' Sambos and it is a fixture of Lincoln City. Yes, there is a gifty shoppy thing at the cashiers, it's Lincoln City -- the beach of Portland. Ger over that, too. The food is first rate and that is the point. Generous breakfasts to be sure, but battered fried prawns are hand made and succulent. Luncheon has comfort food galore. The service is first rate and the bathrooms are clean. My wife and I live on the coast and Lil' Sambo's is a treat for us as it will be for you.

“Huge portions”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

Had breakfast here today and could not finish it due to the size. Breakfast burrito was very good and the red potatoes were awesome. Others in my group had the Mediterranean omelet, chicken fried steak and Over easy eggs with hot cakes. Everything was very good and all portions were large. Service was very good and prompt.

“Not so good anymore ..”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

Usually Sambo's is great but my food was overcooked and some of it was burned. Even had that burned taste but it was like they had covered it up and the burned food was on the bottom. Pancakes, coffee, juice were great !!!

“Great Art on Building”
Reviewed February 9, 2013

The Tiger on Top of the building and the food inside is okay--nothing special, but will do.Service is iffy, at best. It is probaly best to not expect "great" anything.
