We just attended a function in Grover Beach that was catered by Sam's. Huge pizzas and salad were delivered and it gave us a chance to try 4 different pizzas. They were very good. Today we went to Sam's to try a sandwich. We shared a Chicken and Mushroom oven heated sandwich that was about a foot long. One of... More

After reading some of the reviews about Sam's I was expecting the service and pizza to be better. The pizza was good, but nothing other than your typical pizza. I thought the prices were high and they didn't give refills on drinks. We also tried a calzone and that was tasty. Overall it was okay, but I wouldn't go back... More

The only pizza place in the Grover Beach area to serve Pizza by the slice...and the slice is huge since its cut from Sam's signature 30 inch diameter pie. The pizza is excellent and tasty mix of fresh ingredients ....

I am from the East Coast but currently live out in California. That being said, I'm always on the look out for pizza like we have in New York. Spent the day on Pismo Beach and wanted a nice slice of pie for dinner....found Sam's Giant Manhattan Pizza driving through town and decided to stop. Holy deliciousness. My mouth was... More

Killer home-made creamy Italian dressing. Great over their salad or drizzle on your pizza. I ordered the Sicilian style square, slightly deep dish pizza. It was very good with just the right amount of dough, sauce, cheese, toppings, and grease. :-) Can't wait to bring a group to try to 30" pizza next time.

This place may not look like much, but the pizza is amazing! Have to say that I was surprised to find this place through friends. Then I ordered the giant 30" pizza for a party I was going to and it was fought over! Just saying give this place a try for an exciting pizza, if you love them like... More
