The pizza here is incredible! Not to mention the cheese bread and the highly recommended beef roll pizza!!! It was SO good! And family owned! I think that it is mostly used for pick up, but it is fine to dine in also!!

Went here with family of 8-a little skeptical when we arrived because no one was there. So glad we stayed! We ordered 2 20" pizzas, large cheese bread and the beef roll pizza. WOW!!! Cheese bread was basically a medium/large size pizza with cheesy goodness...More

Pizza is a personal choice. Everyone has their favorite. Mine is Sam's. The sausage is very good. It's a little greasy but that's what makes it so good. We hit it every couple of weeks and have never been disappointed.

My husband loves Sam's pizza but I am not the biggest fan of their sauce so we only get their pizza every once in a while. I always order the pizza with light sauce so that way I can eat it. The pizza is decent...More
