We have come here several times and have never been disappointed. The burritos are awesome and the breakfasts are so delicious. We like to go during the week when it is not super crowded. Service has always been great, clean place, lot's of good things to eat on the menu. The cinnamon buns are the bomb!

This restaurant has a wide variety of foods from breakfast to dinner, vegetarian dishes as well. They offer lots of fun things to eat. They are always busy so that is usually a good sign. They have lots of tvs for sporting events and outdoor patio seating. Large parking lot to find parking.

We came here during the day on St. Patrick's day and had a great meal. Since it was early in the day it wasn't crowded yet, we had great service and food. The pancakes were awesome! We also got scratch made corn beef hash which was excellent. The menu is HUGE so good luck figuring out what you want to... More

We eat here often. The plates are generous and flavorful. My 11 yr. old loves the pancakes with fresh strawberries. My husband always gets the Greek burger with tater tots. I have to say they are the best tots I've ever had. It's the little things like this that make this place great. My fave is the buffalo chicken salad... More

Don't go for lunch unless it's after 1:30. The service is better then even though the food is just average despite the extensive menu.

This is a great resturant with a very varied menu. There is something for everyones taste. Prices are far and as noted in the title, portions are large. Have been to a couple of their locations, very consistent between resturants.

Sams No. 3 is a must visit, especially for breakfast. Get there early because this place is popular for a reason; Great food and service. Ecpect a wait. I would have given it 5 stars but I think they have raised there prices a little too much, so it can get expensive. Other than that, it is a winner.
