Breakfast at Sambo's

This is the only Sambo's open in the U.S. It's also the original Sambo's. As some of you know Sambo's got into some trouble in the 1980's for being politically incorrect. The lot was filled with Bimmers on Sunday afternoon...

Whenever you guys are back in town be sure to check out "Chad's" restaurant down on Chapala St. Chad's is famous in town for great food and drinks + lovely young ladies. Chad Stevens also owns Sambo's, which was originally founded by his grandfather. His wife drives a BMW...

That would be Michelle, according to the menu. I didnt realize there were any Sambo's open until recently. My gal bought me a VERY un-PC T-shirt there.

I had breakfast there on Saturday before B'fest. The lot was 10' from my hotel room door. I remember them from when I was a kid, but I don't recall having eaten there before this year.
