Westword's Description

For many years, Sam's No. 3 on Havana Street kept Sam Armatas's dream alive. When it opened in Aurora in 1969, it was the last Sam's left -- and it's still going strong. The food (listed on a voluminous menu of American Southwestern diner standards mixed in with a streak of pure Coney Island genius) is not always great here, but when this outpost brings its A-game, it's enough to make you forgive and forget all former offenses.

    Just had brunch there and it was ridiculously hot and the food was ok nothing to rave about. Do not get a waitress named Jess she is extremely rude and trashy. She should not be allowed out of a cage!! She ruined my day!! I would not go there if you want to have a peaceful weekend!!!!!!

    Needs a different cook. Sent back our hamburgers because they were raw rather than medium cooked. Second batch of hamburgers were cooked unevenly. Will avoid this place in the future.
