Sam's No. 3, popular since opening in 1927, 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. Did we mention cheeseburgers? The multiple-page menu can seem overwhelming, but all you really need to know is that Denverites have been giving awards to Sam's No. 3 for years with good reason. Even Guy Fieri stopped in to get the scoop. 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, tater tots and mac-and-cheese smothered in green chili? Sam's may look average but don't be fooled. There are tasty, sophisticated cocktails and espresso drinks, too. Bottom line: Sam's No.3 is a glorious down-home and divey Denver tradition.
