Did not disappoint! Lots of variety including Mexican and American favorites. Green chili sauce very flavorful with just enough heat. Friendly and quick service with very reasonable prices

My husband and I drove through San Luis on a sight seeing detour. We stopped in at Sam's Covered Wagon for lunch after reading the reviews. This restaurant showed the pride often found in small town diners. It was spotless, pleasant and casual. I ordered...More
