Stopped by for dinner and had the Kabob combo which was very good. It tasted good, plenty of food and very reasonable price. One beef and one chicken kabob with rice.

We had an event with hungry volunteers to feed. We picked up the sandwiches at 11 (family subs, cut into 8 servings each) and everyone got a delicious filling meal on the go. Very helpful and friendly folks!

Delicious, mouthwatering sandwiches for a great price. Personally, I think their hot roast beef sandwiches are to die for! The owner is very friendly and helpful as well. Sam's is a solid establishment.

The picnic benches and patio are perfect on a sunny day and so is the view. The owners serve fantastic sandwiches and thin cut fries. A half dozen varieties of beers are available to choose from ranging from microbrews to Coors Light.
