This building is THEE most complete and original I have found yet. Nothing has been changed, as for the booths, counters, stools, kitchen, back rooms, etc. Back window shade still looks to be original with its white and orange colors. Cornered windows and original tile still in lower front and sides. A bar may have been added and different lights are now mounted over the booths, tile side roofing and a roof connecting the restaurant entrance to the Googie car covered area of the Motel, but that's it! Would take nothing to bring back to a Sambo's inside and out. Just some TLC to all that is present.
I wish to thank the owner of the Motel for allowing me to enter the inside of this historic Restaurant. He was a great guy, and it was a real treat to see all of the inside, and seeing it still in its original condition. His hospitality also allows you all to see this one of a kind Sambo's location as well.
