Good Pizza!

Love to get pizza at Sam's, whenever we come to Tahoe we always make sure we have a pizza. We either eat in or take out, and it's always been consistently good. We usually get the combo.

Best pizza! Never come to Tahoe without a visit to Sam's Place. Love the outdoor patio area! Great service, even for us visitors. Parking can be tricky on a busy Friday night, but other than that, no complaints!

I read a review that the burgers were good so I ordered a green chili burger with swiss cheese. I could not taste the green chilis nor the cheese. All I tasted was the char from the grill. The burgers were one step up from school cafeteria burgers. I ordered cole slaw as the side and it tasted a little... More

We had just finished a ride on the Tahoe Queen and needed lunch. I probably would not have stopped just driving by, but the comments were good. It was worth it. The burgers were prepared well. And who would think a small place like this would have a soft shelled crab sandwich. It was awesome.

Interesting spot, good food and drinks. A little hard to park, keep your eye out as you approach. Make sure you have the time to linger as it can get busy and is laid back service.

The outside of the Sam's Place is not much to look at but I was told that it is the oldest existing bar in Tahoe. The inside is like a small maze and of course very dated. We ordered a pizza based on the trip advisor reviews. Delicious! Crust was thick and had a great consistency. Not greasy. My husband... More
