  • This place puts the grease in Greasy Spoon.
  • The Mac and cheese DIP is not what you think it is
  • Get the chicken fajita burrito
  • Bacon Bloody Maries!
  • The green chili burger is fantastic. I highly recommend replacing the beef patty with a buffalo patty; it offers a slightly different texture which really makes the dish.
  • If you are alone, head for the counter, the wait time is almost zero, and you her the real diner feel sitting there amongst the locals
  • The rootbeer freeze is the chronic and now, roll tide
  • Meatloaf sandwich is delicious!
  • The vegetarian breakfast burrito is even better topped with avocado and vegetarian green chili.
  • The perfect all-around diner. Gets it right, from the archetypical diner coffee to the perfectly cooked steak & eggs. Doesn't forget to butter your toast or refill your mug.
  • If you come on a weekend and can do so, head straight to the bar. Little to no wait, quick service, and Justin the bartender is a cool dude.
  • Sams has a vegetarian green chile so tasty that a bowl makes a satisfying meal. It also works well in a supporting role: smothering huevos rancheros or topping a breakfast burrito.
  • Love this place . Closest thing to a west Michigan wet burrito! So tasty! Great ice cream too!
  • This spot was featured on Diners Drive-Ins And Dives. I got the Kitchen Sink last time I played the Denver area. Green Chili is bomb.
  • Long wait in the morning but they serve you coffee while you wait. Burritos and skillets are great. Lots and lots of choices but order simple combos for best results.
  • The green chili sauce is excellent.
  • Fast, friendly, delicious, and inexpensive!
  • The skillets are amazing!! Best breakfast in town.
  • When in doubt, order breakfast.
  • Great gyro and eggs breakfast and biscuits and gravy
