Sam’s, located in the former Chino’s space, is run by a guy whose family was involved with the beginning of the Red Robin empire. According to Facebook, Sam’s offers “a vibrant setting, convivial ambience, and hip American tavern concept”; like Red Robin, Sam’s serves gourmet hamburgers and bottomless fries (they should really put some pants on). One evening shortly after Sam's opened, a live goat and chicken were on the premises. Early reports indicated that the decor is very familiar and the food is not so great.
