We were just trying to avoid traffic and find dinner. Google showed Samantha's Restaurant as an option and we tried it. Our table wobbled and the table setting method of putting a large sheet of paper over the tablecloth was a bit odd. The tables...More

One of the best small little restaurants in the Silver Spring area. I have been here several times and the food has always been excellent. Parking can be an issue at certain times and there is no reservations so the wait time for a table...More

For years, I've relied on Samantha's for better-than-usual Mexican meals. In recent times they've been getting better both on the food and the service sides. Service continued on the ascendant today, food took a tiny step back. I'll still keep coming, but I may check...More

Samantha's is an amazing restaurant, with extremely reasonable prices. I love the carne asada, which is always cooked perfectly. The guac is always fresh and delicious, and the margaritas are also great. Other favorites include the steak enchiladas and burritos. Good mix of both Mexican...More
