There is nothing wrong with Sam’s, but there is nothing special either. There is a wide selection and the food is better than Denny’s (a very low bar to clear), but it is still just a mediocre diner. People seem to love it though.

The food was absolutely delicious! Customer service was Top Notch very attentive and courteous. The menu is about 16 pages long with a variety of choices. The monster burger is scrumptious. My friend said his Mexican combination dish with chili was divine. Save room for...More

The menu seems never ending and it's hard to make a decision, but the prices are on point, and the food is pretty good. We always seem to get pretty good service here as well.

Went in to grab something quick and was pleasantly surprised. The fish sandwich of the day was delicious. The baked cookie good(s) we equally great. I’d definitely come back. I would love to try the breakfast that my wife says is very good.

Always great food, good service and plenty of both. I try hard not to get the same thing twice. Still think the green chili is so good. I recommend trying all the DDD signature dishes.

If people are standing or sitting in line to get it, it is not because the food is bad. One of my favorite breakfast spots. Daily specials, great green chile, huge selections of meat and eggs. Pancakes and waffles for your gluten fix. Only con...More

Great place! Diner like no other! The menu goes on and on. We waited on a Friday night but the meal was worth the wait.

Sam's No 3 reminds me of an east coast diner! The menu is large and diverse with something for everyone's taste. The food is good and wholesome, but not necessarily "healthy." It would be hard to call a loaded burrito healthy, but it is really...More

I apologize that we were not aware of this question until now! The Aurora location does have an outdoor patio. It will be mostly closed during the winter, but we do have heaters so on those warmer 60+ winter days, it may... More
