When we visit I Have To Stop Here

At least once a year when we come up to visit family I have to stop in and get a Ham Italian Sandwich.. Man I just love the bread and all.. They don't have them in Ct... Check it out at least once and see if you don't go back.. The other food there is also good.. Mmmm

Maybe it's just because I grew up on this place but they are my all time favorite pizza shop. Best Italians I've ever had and even their spaghetti is fantastic. Staff is very friendly .

What better way to treat the bridal party to lunch than take out from Sam's Italian. Lunch back at the bridal suite for everyone! Great day!

I have had a seafood sub there twice now. The first time the lettuce placed in it was very old and limp. The second time the same way. Twice burned. Not again. I wish Amatos would come in to the Minot Ave. section of Auburn. They would make a killing.

I think Sam's is a textbook example of what happens when an eatery overexpands. They have several locations in L/A and several others in outlying towns. I've had pizza from here several times and it's usually undercooked. I've sworn off their pasta dinners for lack of flavor and smaller than average portions. The chicken salad is ok, not great. As...

I went there with my wife and kids for something simple after a long day. Sam's are everywhere around here, so we thought it should be pretty good, right? Mistake number one. Don't get me wrong, the trainee was friendly and we didn't mind the little mistakes she made--she's learning. Overall her customer service was excellent. However, our food was... More

Sam's is what it is. Consistent, average, and sometimes tasty. They make a really good meatball grinder, but their pizza is very average and sometimes underdone. They make all the common grinders, serve up decent pasta offerings, but all in all, they offer a good place for a quick stop, but nothing to rave about.

We were staying at a motel in Auburn on Center Street and called Sam's to order pizza to pick up and take back to the hotel

My wife and stopped in on the 20th about 100 for a lunch. This Sams was staffed by two men, one older one younger,,, we ordered a BLT with a cup of chili and the Meat Lasagna dinner. The older gent worked on the food, the BLT was literally thrown together with junks of tomato, lettuce not sliced no mayo,,,... More
