No frills small town Pizza joint with the best Pizza Evah! I think it's in the special cheese blend. I'm loving the thin crust right now.

stopped in for a loaded pizza. Took way to long to get it and when we did it was just warm. Maybe it was a bad night but toppings were not the best and crust was soggy.

Went here for dinner, this is nice quite place to have dinner, the pizza is very good as is the many pasta dishes they have. They only serve beef and wine for adults.

Have given this place a few chances, has never lived up to any kind of expectation. It's really outdated. The sauce is bland. The pizza crust is a weird combo of chewy and dry. Service is ok but nothing to write home about. Won't go back, would rather drive a little further to Beloit where there are much better restaurants... More

No matter how many places I try Pizza, Sam is always going to be my favorite I think. They have remodeled the inside but it still doesn't have a lot of atmosphere. However, you can almost always run into friends and family there.

This is great for pizza or one of the Italian dishes they make, almost home made. The calzones are very good, as is the baked Italian dishes

I've been getting pizza from the various Rockford area Sam's Pizza restaurants for over 30 years. It is, hands down, the best pizza in the Rockford area. There is nothing fancy here- sorry, but you won't be getting fresh spinach or arugula on your pie here. But if you are looking for a great pizza with a perfect crust, just... More

That's what my brother says and he has been "every where". The atmosphere is just "home town" nothin fancy and could actually use some serious updating. But, the pizza.....WOW. Love it. The crust and the sauce and the cheese are just right. My fav.....sausage, bacon and mushroom. I also enjoy the spaghetti and meatballs.
