Sammy's El Pueblo
Sammy's El Pueblo's culinary team oversees a savory marriage of Mexican delicacies and American classics served in a bright, relaxed atmosphere. After scanning the menu, table denizens can clutch one of 25 juicy burgers—the eatery's core stomach filler—such as the bourbon burger, an aptly christened patty of ground Angus beef slathered in bourbon sauce ($8.99). Nine hot dogs, such as the julienned-corned-beef Reuben dog ($5.99), form the yin to the burgers' yang on the American half of the menu, and can be used like notches to keep track of baseball innings or days left in solitary confinement. Guests can also explore the roster of Mexican fork targets, influenced by family recipes, that include enchiladas, burritos, fajitas, and specialties such as the carnitas dinner ($10.99)—tender roasted pork, fresh pico de gallo, rice, and beans served alongside flour tortillas as soft as a down pillow that overindulges its kids.
