Delicious pizza, ancient sign, however, the multiple named spatulas above the kitchen represented 5 year employment recognitions for the employees. They don't fry chicken - they bake pizzas, VERY GOOD PIZZA!

Pizza is great if you like lots of cheese. Biggest downside is no brew and it's a college down. Get beer and we'll be back.

Dinner turned out to be a magnificent experience here. The portions served here can feed an army. Customer service was fantastic. All items on their menu are a great deal. The decor and the vibe are fun and inviting. The name of this location is so creative and unique. It's a stop everyone should make at least once in their... More

The pizzas loaded with cheese! And the menu is fun. Sandwiches were great also, the bread was fresh. Came with chips and was reasonably priced. It was half a sandwich but luckily I wasn't starving when we went. The atmosphere is great! A must visit in Tahlequah!

I live out of town but my whole family will make the trip to Tahlequah just to eat at Sam & Ella's. We love their "Capps" (Mushrooms in melted cheese) and their house salad is really good and not typical. We love the "Dominiquer" specialty pizza but you may want to try others. I have never been disappointed and the... More

This is a privately owned pizza restaurant and has what all agree is the best pizza in town and pretty much within 50 miles. Their ingredients are from scratch and the toppings and combinations are terrific. Located near the university. We especially enjoy the sloppy pie and they have great salads. The atmosphere is spacious and is really funny interesting... More

By far the best pizza in town! The waitstaff is usually kids from college (NEOSU) and they are always polite. I had eaten there before but my husband hadn't. Stopped by Walmart for a couple of forgotten things. Standing in line we were talking about pizza and asked the cashier for the best. Both she and two customers agreed that... More

The setting is quaint. The food to much to eat. The quality of the food is exceptional. I always get a side salad, it would easily feed 3 people. The medium pizza is too much for two people. But, who doesn't love pizza rehearsed, or even cold.

Saw this restaurant on a local television travel show and since we were in town, decided to see if it was as good as they said. It was! We ordered a small pizza. I think it was called Sam & Ella's supreme, sorry, I forgot, blacked out because it was so pretty when it arrived at our table. More than... More
