We went to Sam's with low expectations, but in the end we were positively surprised. The giant pizza is really giant and it tastes good.

After reading some of the reviews about Sam's I was expecting the service and pizza to be better. The pizza was good, but nothing other than your typical pizza. I thought the prices were high and they didn't give refills on drinks. We also tried...More
