Awful service. Waitresses should still be in school. Food was mediocre. Avoid. I had the Sam's Burger. Which had a patty, buns that fell apart, uncooked AND cooked onions, cheap lettuce, a barely cooked slice (.5cm) of ham and a small slice of cheese.

On entering there was only one table available, which we thought was a good sign as others... More

We went into uncle Sams on Sunday at 4.30pm, we had a look at the menu outside which looked very good including Sunday roasts, After seating ourselves we waited and waited for menus as a young blond haired girl filled the fridge with cold drinks, when she did bring our menus she set them in the middle of the table...
