We stopped here for an early dinner on our way to the hotel, at my suggestion as the rest of my party hadn't been to a Sam's before. The food was good, portions were good as well. However, I do have to say that the queso dip really tasted and had the consistency of Velveeta. They could do way better than this!

I ordered one of the specials, of which I forget the exact name. It was a beef burrito with caramelized onions and rice in it, with cheese all over, and refried beans and sour cream. It was very good!

The server was quite pleasant and attentive.

We have someone in our family with Celiac so it was great that the GF options were pretty good here.

I'd definitely go back, just may not order the queso again, but try a different appetizer.

Atmosphere was festive, but we were disappointed with the food. We made minor changes to standard dishes (e.g., no olives in the salad; no ice in the drinks), but these were completely ignored. Bill was higher than we expected.

Sam Diego’s is great! Great food, great drinks and the deserts are wonderful. The fried ice cream is the best! The place is located on route 132 near the Cape Cod Mall. It is all decorated in bright colors, Mexican figures, cactuses, suns and moons... The service is great and you can’t miss Sam Diego’s on your next visit to Hyannis.

We are locals and try to get here once a month or so. Specials are great, huge menu and yummy chips with salsa. Cocktails are good and the taco lunch bar is the best deal in town. You get soups or chili with muffins plus taco and salad fixings for $8! Dinner specials are so good and have huge portions. Ribs, chicken, tacos and more. The bbq sauce is the best and my 13 yo favorite. We have celebrated events like birthdays here and it’s great for a group or date night. Lots of parking and fun decor. If you are new to the area you have got to come to SD!!

Delicious food at a reasonable price. Kids menu could have a little more variety, my sons burger was a little over cooked. My husband and I enjoyed a Burrito & and Enchilada. Cocktails are quite big for a good price & the wait staff were pleasant, friendly and attentive. Will definitely be returning.
