This restaurant has one of the biggest menus of any restaurant in the Colorado area. So many items, in fact, that the only trouble you’ll have at Sam’s is choosing what to eat! The restaurant serves breakfast all day everyday but does not neglect lunch or dinner. The restaurant has green chili that is to die for and some of the best burgers around.

This great restaurant is true to its name as it has three convenient locations in the Colorado area. The restaurant has a perfect location right in downtown Denver at 1500 Curtis Street, Denver, CO 80202, a location in Aurora at  2580 S Havana St, Aurora, CO 80014, and a third location in Glendale at  435 S Cherry St, Glendale, CO 80246.
