Sam’s No. 3 was the 3rd of 5 Coney islands opened by patriarch Sam Armatas in the 1920’s. The original location was at 1527 Curtis St. On 9/28/98, Sam’s son Spero and grandson’s Sam, Alex and Patrick Established Sam’s No. 3 and made a promise to each other to continue the excellent food quality and warm atmosphere started by “Mr. Sam” over 80 years earlier. They have many long-time managers and employees who say that this is the best family, ever, to work for!
