Unfortunately we ordered two large pizzas while friends were visiting. I was thoroughly embarrassed. The crust tasted like cardboard. Dry, hard and tasteless. Years ago this place had decent pizza, not great but good. How they've let their quality take a nosedive is beyond me....More

Love Sam's to grab a slice when downtown. Their selection is great and the pizza is excellent. Their crust is really good and the service is prompt.
