I've been ordering from Sam's for decades and have always liked the food but the past two times I've had horrible customer service. One time, the food came burnt and they would not issue a refund. The next time, the food came late and cold,...More

Excellent thin crust and Chicago style pizza. Also, pretty good selection of beer. My son loves the wings, and he's right, they are good. I've also tried the calzone and love those as well. We'll be back soon.

I have been here twice for the 4.99 calzone special, unfortunate I don't think it even exists. They will bring you a bill when your done and upcharge you for the regular price of the special. Business must be pretty sad if you have to...More

We visit Sam's several times each year. We love the stuffed pizza! It takes about 45 minutes to cook but it is worth the wait. The atmosphere is perfect for a football weekend. We love the fish tank too! The seating area is large and...More

This was our forth time to SAMs pizza. All I can say is awesome. The best flavor of any pizza that I have ever had in my life. The best part about our visit is the fact that they have PBR on tap. Are you...More

Pizza comes with tons of meat. They cut their New York crust into tiny squares so it's good for a large group especially, but fun for a casual date too. Clean place with big booths and an accessible bar. I haven't had problems with the...More

If you are from the Chicago Suburbs and miss REAL chicago style pizza, come to sams. Unlike other businesses in Iowa City that claim they have chicago style, we all know its not. Sauce must be on top of the cheese! I suggest you call...More

Good pizza and a juke box for music. Calm bar-type atmosphere, a good place to watch the game and eat at the same time.
