This place is "Great". From the time we enter the door the staff was very friendly and animated. The menu is huge and the portion are massive. The food was so much better than expected. Our group of 6 was so impressed we already have...More

The service was friendly and pretty decent at keeping my coffee cup full. The menu is HUGE as are the portions. The food came out quickly. I really enjoyed the lively atmosphere with people gathering and chatting. Overall very friendly.

Friendly and helpful service. Menu is Massive. After we finally decided the food came out in like 4 minutes. It was so fast, which was great because we had stuff to do and didn't want a long dining experience. Food was good as well. Overall...More

Sorry, but I thought the breakfast was horrible. Flat tasting eggs. Grisly bacon. Just a lousy experience, period. I have a very good friend who swears by this place but that wasn't my experience. Village Inn, Dozens (best choice) in this hood are far better.

Funky, crowded, bigger than it looks. The menu is huge--if you want it, they probably make it. Breakfast all day, and the omelettes put IHOP to shame. Great sandwiches and Mexican at reasonable prices. Just go--you won't be disappointed!

Went here because it was on Triple D. Was seated right away (3 people) at around 930am on a Friday morning. In looking at the menu, we were there for the "before 10am specials," yes!!!! Got the basic eggs over easy, bacon, toast, and potatoes....More

Love Sam’s 3, but the last time we were there, we were seated, but no one came for over 10 minutes. Several parties came in after us and waited on. Told the hostess, waited another 10 minutes and again no one came. Left!

I apologize that we were not aware of this question until now! The Aurora location does have an outdoor patio. It will be mostly closed during the winter, but we do have heaters so on those warmer 60+ winter days, it may... More
