Sam's No. 3

1500 Curtis St. Denver, CO 80202 | Downtown Denver | 303-534-1927

Location Description:

After more than thirty years, the Armatas family has returned Sam's No. 3 -- the flagship in an eighty-year-old restaurant empire -- to its original home. The menu is voluminous, with eight pages crammed with specials and sides and extras. Although the core offerings remain the Coney Island favorites that made Sam's reputation back in the 1920, there are also skillet breakfasts, 15 kinds of burgers, 21 breakfast burritos and a full page of Mexican grub. All of it's big food, served in a down-home style. Welcome back.
