I miss the employees and the food. Unlike what others said, I found the waitresses (and even Bruce) to be very friendly. When they were busy, they would hustle to get the food out quickly. It was one of my favorite places to go.

Have been in there after church several times. While the food was good, the owners just aren't friendly and treat you like you are in a diner in Brooklyn. Food is authentic though.

Good food for many years. Will be closing due to owners personal and health reasons. Many of the clientele will be sad to see them go. Been going there for more than 25 years.

Sam's Kosher Style is a go to restaurant for excellent sandwiches. A touch of New York in Fair Oaks. The tongue sandwich was outstanding as were the Reubens. We are from Las Vegas and enjoyed our lunch.

I wanted to like it... mom and pop place that was a city staple, stuck in a time warp. Unfortunately, I was met at the door by dirty worn out carpeting, booth seats covered in large sections with old dirty rows of silver duct tape...More
