Sammy's

The main thing that gets me through a tough week is the promise of a date with Kevin. I dragged him to Sammy's, a local burger joint that I love and he hates. He thinks it is overpriced and comparable to Wendy's, but I totally disagree. Their battered fries and pie shakes are just what I need after a long week. In a trashy/classy kind of way.

And - if you are interested in some entertainment while there, check out the sign outside the restaurant. We laughed so hard the people around us kept turning around and staring, but after we left we saw them crowd around the sign as well. Gotta love Provo Center Street

That sign cracked me up...oh my gosh, I can't wait to show Christopher. My favorite part was the nickelback thing. Oh gosh. Also--I think Sammy's peach pie shake is amazing. I don't remember there hamburgers or fries, but that shake makes it worth the trip every time. I'll go with you in just a couple weeks!

Love Sammy's. My friends and I always end up with pie shakes in between sessions during April General Conference. It's one of my favorite food traditions, but I'm thinking I need to make it more frequent.

Hahahaha. Best sign ever. I was at Senuous Sandwich a few days ago and saw something similar.

And ps. Sammys grilled cheese sandwiches are my fav. Probably not the finest dining Provo has to offer, but it's always fun.

I think your husband might dig mine and my husband's favorite burger place. Smash burger has the best burgers, rosemary fries and chocolate shakes. They are pricier than other burger joints, but we've found no place better.

haha oooh sammy's. i'm pretty sure they have two-for-one deals on their shakes on tuesday nights if you're looking for an early week fix. :)

That sign! There's nowhere else like Provo. I haven't been to Sammy's cause Jeff doesn't like it either, I've been trying to convince him to go, maybe I'll have to get myself a pie shake and let him stay home.

I think every town in America has a burger place like that.

That sign is absolutely hilarious. I want a follow-up report. :)
