Homestyle: Maybe you grew up near a Greek diner, the kind John Belushi so brilliantly portrayed way back when on Saturday Night Live ("cheeseburger, cheeseburger"). Sam's No. 3 is that diner--with a whole lot of green-chile smothered Mexican breakfast, lunch and dinner dishes thrown in. This is Colorado, after all! The multiple-page menu is huge, but all you really need to know is that Sam's No. 3 has been collecting awards for years--especially for its Kickin' Green Chili, its burgers and its breakfasts. Even Guy Fieri of Food Network fame stopped in to get the scoop for an episode of Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. Just like your mother's house, Sam's is not the place for dieting, though there are vegetarian and gluten- and dairy-free options and fruit plates. Sam's shines with its not-diet dishes, however.

Best Value: Sam's No. 3 is everything you love about Greek diners and diner food--with a whole lot of green-chile smothered Mexican breakfast, lunch and dinner dishes thrown in. The multiple-page menu can seem overwhelming. Not to worry. All you really need to know is that Denverites have been giving awards to Sam's No. 3 for years--especially for its Kickin' Green Chili, its burgers and its breakfasts. Even Food Network celeb Guy Fieri stopped in to get the scoop on "Diners, Drive-ins and Dives." If you can't already tell, this is not the place for dieting. Sure, there are vegetarian and gluten- and dairy-free options and fruit plates, but seriously, you can get those anywhere. On the other hand, where can you get a burrito filled with chorizo, tator tots and mac-and-cheese smothered in green chili? Or a Naked French Canadian Swiss Melt? Down-home and divey, Sam's is a Denver tradition.
