Sam's has been on that same corner since 1976 and I don't think it has changed much since then. It's the old style lunch counter and grill. Is the food the best? No. Is it a health option? Absolutely Not. But it is a piece of history that I hope never changes. If nothing else, do as I do; go for a hot dog with mustard, chili and onions and a draft beer at least once every time you're in Garden City.

We were at the beach enjoying the beautiful weather and we decided to go to have a hot dog at Sam's corner. The hot dog is a foot long, with all the toppings, a nice fountain soda and fries, not a bad choice to have lunch. Located across the street from the pier in garden City.

Any long time veterans who have vacationed I the area will tell you there is just something special about getting a White Russian and a footling hot dog at Sams.
Footlong corn dogs and beer hit the spot too when you are
Just sunburned and enjoying the beautiful beach.
Sam’s has changed over the years, but for 30 years, always have them on the vacation itinerary as a must have!

I took the family to SC today. It’s an old school diner that serves food on styrofoam and disposable plates. It looked clean.

Of course we ordered the “world famous” foot-long hotdogs. The dogs were served w/ chili, onions and mustard. They were good & a foot long.

I ordered the onion rings as well. Tasty. $2.25

The salad w/ chicken was iceberg, but it did have a ring of pickles down the plate. cost about $7.00. The chili cheese fries were not good.

My son ordered a Grape Nehi soda and it was $3.35! That’s more than the hot dog.

Overall it was fine for “boardwalk” /“beach” type food. Not exceptional. Worth a quick trip if in the area.

Cute diner, but their prices keep going up and portions growing smaller. Not a family friendly priced place to eat. Have been going for years, but think I have made my last trip due to price and portion.
