Nope I believe it has been bought by a Japanese company. However, he does frequent the restaurant periodically.

Sorry for return the answer so late!

Sam lent his name and recipes to this hilltop perch, but my understanding is that Yum Brands retained ownership. IMHO, the restaurant food is overpriced for the quality. If you want the sunset without taking on a second mortgage, try happy hour at the bar. Pupus are reasonably priced and alcohol is a bargain.

I have no idea. It was just a quick stop for us and we enjoyed it.

No, surprisingly it still belongs to the Wendy's hamburger chain, which it once was.
