“Good food”
Reviewed August 8, 2012

The people here are very friendly.The food is burgers and such and the food is good.My only complaint is the interior of this restaurant.This restaurant is inside of a shopping strip which appears to be pretty nice, but the restaurant looks outdated and not as clean as I prefer.

“Hot, Fried & Greasy”
Reviewed August 8, 2012

We visit here every year. However, this past year was a shocker. The help was extremely rude, was irrated when ordering and messed my order up. (Must of been having a bad day). Seating is limited. Air Condtioner was set on low it seemed and it was hot. Again, the season for tourist. The cleaniness was average for a walk-in. Menu was basically, fries, hamburgers, hot dogs, Onion rings. (Beach Food).

“Tradition”
Reviewed August 6, 2012

Sam Corner has been a tradition for too many years to stop going. The hot dogs are really good, while the drink are a bit on the expensive side. The biggest plus is they stay open 24/7 so no matter what time you need a snack you can stop buy. It's usually pretty packed and has very little seating but don't let this stop you from coming in, service is quick so people are in and out in very little time

“A Beach Ritual”
Reviewed July 31, 2012

Yes, the food is mostly "OK".

Yes, the service can vary depending on who is working and how busy they are at the moment.

Yes, there are lower prices to be had in the area for basic fare as offered here.

HOWEVER, a trip to Garden City Beach would not be complete without my daughter and I poking our head into Sam's Corner for our ritual meal and people-watching break. There is something comforting that even after several years we can sit down @ Sam's and feel a sense of stability in the El Paso sandwich for me and some chicken tenders for my daughter with our chili-cheese tater tots and sweet tea. I don't care that this meal just cost us almost $20--we have fun with the staff if they are not slammed (they are actually pretty decent people if you talk to them!), it's always fun to watch the cast of characters who are also in the restaurant eating or ordering, and Sams is right in the middle of whatever we are doing during our stay.

Every meal here during your vacation? Nah, not by a long shot--but don't write off Sam's Corner till you have tried it at least once.

“Decent food.”
Reviewed July 28, 2012

Nice corner restaurant by the pier. Nice people. Chili dogs are good as are chili cheese tater tots. Reminds you of a drug store counter. Smoking allowed and door open so not supercool. Great for people watching. Food fair
