Samurai Sam's Teriyaki Grill

The first Samurai Sam's Teriyaki Grill location opened in 1994 in Scottsdale, Arizona. The original vision for the restaurant was to create a menu that featured healthy, fresh Japanese-inspired dishes. Today, the brand's menu features Japanese favorites, including a variety of rice bowls filled with marinated, grilled steak and chicken, fresh wok-stirred veggies and steamed rice topped with Sam’s Teriyaki Sauce. Samurai Sam’s is also well-known for its yakisoba bowls, grilled egg rolls and salads. Ideal candidates are passionate about customer service and are driven to succeed. Since you'll be provided with ongoing support and training, you don't need restaurant experience.
