Cary Moore Lil Sambos

Lil Sambo’s has been a coastal landmark since the 50s and recently closed along with myriad other restaurants due to COVID-19, but restaurateur Cary Moore has built a drive-up window to bring pancakes and bacon to the sheltered masses.

Lil Sambos Drive-up window

Moore had the idea to build a drive-up window three days ago and went out in search of the right window. He found it and began constructing a box that juts out from the restaurant. He hired a painter when the drive-up was finished and now customers can get their Lil Sambo’s favorites from their cars.

“People can once again get our super-thick bacon,” Moore said.

Moore’s business is running off a streamlined menu, with a selection of their most popular entrees available for breakfast and lunch. Also ready to consume are espresso and milkshakes.

Lil Sambos menu

“We spent the first week doing stuff we couldn’t do while customers are in the restaurant,” Moore said, “We did sheetrock, painting and many repairs. Things you can’t do while customers are sitting in the restaurant.”

Moore said Lil’ Sambo’s staff has undergone special training sessions to implement safety protocols to keep the public safe.

According to Moore, the wait time has been drastically reduced by the limited menu and people can also call ahead and pick up their orders.

Lil Sambos drive-up service is open 8 a.m.- 3 p.m. seven days a week.

  1. By now, we are on “the downhill side” of the Virus. The worst is already over, and has been for awhile. While safety matters, we can never completely eliminate *all* risk. That is an unreasonable expectation. LOTS more testing has now, and still is, being done.

    But its been long enough. Has the governor seen this newsclip? Things are better now and too many people will lose their business. People need to feed their kids. And m ake their house payments. And pay rent on their office space. Have a listen to this short video clip. I found it eye opening. It got 5 million views! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sPrbGU0Wyh4

  2. Lil Sambos has been our Fathers Day tradition for over twenty years.
    We drive from Salem, enjoy the best pancakes ever, and head to the beach every year with our two kids ( now 18 and 22 ).
    We are thrilled that the tradition will continue.
