Fresh Tortillas and Black Beans

Tortilla Sam’s is a unique Mexican restaurant specializing in black bean dishes. This place kept me fed while attending college at nearby WPI, and really made me a fan of black beans. The carry-out area provides quick fast-food style service with restaurant quality food, and is typically how I ordered. If you have time, however, it’s worth dining in the Cantina. It has a much larger menu, with many of the same dishes you find at other Mexican restaurants, cooked Sam’s style.

Other then the black beans, a few things separate Tortilla Sam’s from the average Mexican restaurant in my mind. Flour tortillas are pressed and grilled fresh in the take out area, while you watch. I assume most restaurants buy their tortillas in bulk, because you just can’t beat the taste and texture of the ones from Sam’s. If you’re planning to consume alcohol, be aware that Sam’s has a BYOB policy, and doesn’t serve any of their own alcoholic beverages. There is a liquor store nearby if you need to stock up before dinner. Finally, if you like spicy food, try the “napalm” salsa. Despite the gimmicky name, it’s actually a very flavorful addition to your meal.

P.S. They had a cream-based pumpkin soup as the soup of the day once. If they happen to have this while you’re there, order it. It tastes like hot, liquid pumpkin pie!

Black Bean

The combination of beans and spices make this simple burrito one of the best dishes Sam’s has to offer.

Tortilla Sams just earned a new nick name...Tortilla Scams. While having company in town, we decided on Mexican for dinner and ended up with one of the worst dinning experiences--ever!! If you have time to waste, love not being attended…

All hype; poor product

Waste of money. "Popeye's" burrito (take out) contained a Huge wad of rice, but had less than 1/2 cup of meat, total. The meat was in little cubes, very dry and without much flavor except perhaps salt. No salsa was inside this…
