The pizza is fine - not outstanding but fine. Once you stray off the pizza menu things definitely head south fast. I've lived in the neighbourhood for a long time and Papa Sam's was a staple but times have changed. Ordered a sub and spaghetti tonight. Premade "grocery store" frozen meatballs for the spaghetti and soggy fries and a wilted... More

This chain buys discounted and reduced produce to use in their food. You can tell when you eat there

I've got the worst chicken shawarma wrap in my life in this place. Certified. And waited very long to get this. I have nothing else to add : avoid this place

My daughter and I ordered delivery from Stittsville location. I was told 20 minutes which I thought was quick. 50+ minutes later I called and was told he said 40 minutes.

I have ordered the pizza, chicken finger and poutine and all are very good. They have takeout and delivery available. Lots of parking as it is in a mall.

I have ordered Papa Sam's pizza for years and never had one that wasn't exceptional...something about the sauce that makes it special. Every year my husband asks me what I want for dinner on my birthday and the answer is always Papa Sams. Often Sam even delivers it himself,,,don't get that level of service in many places. The restaurant itself... More
