“Lunch is So-So at Sammy's”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

There is always seating available at Sammy's for lunch and probably for good reason. The service is slow and poorly trained, and the food is somewhat greasy and basic. Hilda's is a better selection in terms of service, food, and atmosphere.

“Sammy's soon will be Azadero's Bar and Grill”
Reviewed June 19, 2013

My mother, brother, and I stopped in at Sammy's after visiting a relative in the nearby hospital. It was a little before the dinner rush, but we were welcomed. My 45 year old brother is autistic, and he makes a mess, but our waitress, Lucy, treated him with respect, something that we don't always enjoy. Being from New Mexico, I am a snob when it comes to Mexican food, and I had come to the opinion that one just couldn't get good Mexican food in Texas, having been disappointed many times before. But we thought we'd give Sammy's a try since it was handy. I had Tacos Carbon, mom had enchiladas and "puffy" tacos. My brother had a smothered beef burrito. RIQUISIMO! The prices were reasonable, the restaurant spotless, the service terrific and polite, the food plentiful and delish!

“Great Mexican food that's inexpensive”
Reviewed May 22, 2013 via mobile

A group of us riding in the hill country happened on the restaurant. The food was really good. The service was good too. The restaurant is showing it's age inside though. Worth a stop while in Fredericksburg.

“Good Food”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

We ate at Sammy's in March. The food was great and inexpensive. It is just a restuarant, nothing fancy. Service was fast and hot. The only problem was they only have a beer license.

“going down hill”
Reviewed January 22, 2013

We always frequent this place but will no more!!! Last two weekends the atmosphere was poor. Bright lights, no music. TV on soaps. Poor service - two teenage girls that are more interested in giggling and friends that pull up in cars. The guy at the register is unattentive and constantly texting. He had his friends coming in leaning around register texting. Also second time he was intoxicated, holding on counter when he check us our and too drunk to run our credit card. Kept putting in in backwards. Very unappealing. Makes you wonder what is going on in the kitchen!!! They need the adults back to run things. Its too bad since we have really enjoyed the food there in the past.
