Going to Sambo's is kind of a big deal for me. I've wanted to go to one before I even knew there was only one of them left.
Okay, you can kick the dirt and look around nervously when you talk about the name and history. Wikipedia it if somehow you don't know what I'm talking about.
The inside of the restaurant is adorned with murals and decorations detailing the original Sambo story.
They give you a basket of mini-muffins to start out with. They were really tasty.
We had an incredibly helpful waitress that guided our menu selections.
Antoinette had the chorizo scramble with potatoes and a side of pancakes. The potatoes were the star--they were perfect. The chorizo scramble was delicious but the pancakes were a little bland.
I had the Bengal Tiger Special. The french toast and bacon was good. The eggs were really interesting--they were shredded? I have never had eggs like that. They were good...just interesting.
That's a lechery looking Tiger.
Service: Helpful. (but not to good with the refills)
