THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Sam's Cafe Restaurant Review

: Conveniently located in the Biltmore Fashion Park, Sam's offers delicious lessons in Southwestern Food 101, providing a great introduction to the cuisine. The flavors aren't too far out in dishes like poblano chicken chowder, pan-fried tuna with chile mashed potatoes and tequila chicken pasta, and they're all pleasantly spiced. Even if you're well acquainted with the finer points of the cuisine, you probably will still appreciate the comfortable atmosphere and creative desserts like the banana burrito with caramel sauce and vanilla ice cream.
