Review: Provo being Provo, there aren't many funky little joints. Sammy's tries to break that mold. The outside looks like a hippie rolled one too many doobies and then decided to paint. The inside is about the same, except the wall is covered head to foot in photos of past patrons. And not past patrons such as President Clinton or Deron Williams. Nope, these past partons are the regular Toms, Dicks, and Harrys that frequent Sammy's. Anyway, 'nuff 'bout the exterior and interior design; let's get to the food.
The food is decidedly low-brow burger and fries. I had the Sammy's Masterpiece and the seasoned fries. First, the fries. They were a cross between steak fries and shoestring fries. Crispy. Good seasoning. Lots of them. Second, the burger. The beef was pretty good. The toppings (bacon, cheese, mushrooms, lettuce, tomatoes, etc.) were taste and pretty standard. While there was nothing here that'll knock your socks off, the burger, like the fries, was solid.
In the end, if you want a good burger in a funky atmosphere in downtown Provo, Sammy's is your place.
