Sam's Cafe

455 N. Third St. Phoenix, AZ 85004 | Central Phoenix | 602-252-3545

Location Description:

It's easy to go wrong in a town saturated with "Southwestern" kitsch, but the food at this Southwestern-themed Tex-Mex joint is for real. Sweet potato chips are mixed in with the chips and salsa, and the spinach artichoke dip packs a spicy-sweet punch. The kitchen is particularly adept at seafood - fire-grilled tuna and grilled salmon will get you hooked, and the veggie soft tacos ain't bad, either. If all the spices make you thirsty, try one of the margaritas. We recommend the Orange Beso, but be warned - it's so strong the restaurant will cut you off after two.
