Sammy's & Heart day...

No, I'm not going to get into the restaurant review business...although, hmmm...it could mean lots of good food...ok, no, I'm not gonna go there....BUT...going with the ITEX theme this weekend....

For Valentine's Day, Steve and I used an ITEX voucher to stay at the La Quinta near UVU on Sunday night. We got to the hotel early and stayed in our room. Steve enjoyed the on the wall HDTV (his choice, NASCAR) while I started yet another book, Marley & Me (review to come very soon)...We ordered Pizza and Chocolate Dunkers within hours of our arrival, this served as dinner and dessert for the night. We had prepared ahead and brought drinks to keep in the in-room fridge. Later in the evening we watched Hancock on our portable DVD player. This movie was ok, it was a bit confusing but easy enough to follow that it was just ok, imo. After this, I went back to my book and he watched more tv, for awhile....overall, a good time had by all during this stay at La Quinta. If you have never stayed at LQ, I highly recommend it. They have nice rooms with a great breakfast included. We have been staying at LQs for over 6 years and have yet to have a really bad experience! Ok, after leaving the hotel, I was not ready to come home, so I suggested going to Sammy's, since I had my trusty ITEX certs with me...in the hopes that it was open today...it was...

Steve got the Chicken Cordon Blue and a chocolate shake. I got the custom breaded chicken with some additions along with the "add it up..." by getting a peanut butter cup shake and seasoned fries. While we waited for our food, we viewed the wall of photos and next visit plan on getting one of us put up with the caption "gone BATTY for Sammy's!", ok, this is my idea, we'll see if it actually happens! We got our food to go and went to park for a time of train watching, which unfortunately was extra slow today....


REVIEW: (Even though I have met who I assume to be "Sammy", he has no idea that I finally made it into Sammy's nor that I'm writing this review) We both really enjoyed our food. We shared the seasoned fries which were just perfectly seasoned, enough to taste good without being too seasoned...yes, it is possible to be over seasoned! The shakes were both very good. The sandwiches were very very good!!! The value for our money, overall, was very good, as well. I would highly recommend this to any and everyone! When we walked in there was a missionary couple and a family eating at the counter, while we were there, a young couple came in as well as a couple sets of friends. Sammy's appeals to all ages and lifestyles. Makes for a great date night to pick up your food and enjoy someplace you both love to be....there isn't a plethora of seating inside, but the food greatly makes up for this. Go, enjoy and share your thoughts.....located at 27 N 100 W in Provo....so, Sam, great job, keep it up and continued great business to you!!!
