We have eaten at Uncle Sam's since the place first opened at the former Pizza Inn location on Shea Blvd just east of 32nd Street. About a month ago, we invited some family to meet us there for dinner but they declined and said the last time they ate there, the meal just didn't agree with them. Last night, we... More

I have been going to Uncle Sam's since before the start of the 21st century. I always loved the food and there were multiple sandwiches I would rotate between. During my 20's I would often order take-out multiple times a week. Every person I took to Uncle Sam's loved it. Management and staff were friendly and turnover was low. I... More

We have been eating there ever since moving to Phoenix 30 years ago. Best tuna grinders in town. Mushroom beef is out of this world and do not spare the beef. Have also gone the Union Hills resturant is excellent also

Uncle Sam's is a great local pizza restaurant for the entire family. It has been around for over 30 years and still has the original Asteroids and Pacman machines. The pizza is great and most every topping imaginable is an option. It has a small bar in front nestled in a corner. TVs turned to sports pepper the restaurant. It... More

Uncle Sam's is a good place to catch a game. They have a large menu, but it is just really just bar food. If that is what you are in the mood for then try Uncle Sam's.

I have eaten at Uncle Sam’s periodically since 1991. Today was my last time. We attempted to use a discount card that was purchased from a high school fundraiser. I handed the server the card when I ordered. Only after we were done eating she came over with the check and informed us that we couldn’t use the card as... More

I still can't believe how huge the portions are at this place! Wow! The service is awesome, but the place is a little hectic and busy. It can be sensory overload. We were eight people and the staff assisted in combining tables and finding chairs at the height of the dinner rush. My Italian Sausage sandwich was excellent was was... More
