“Huge pizzas, cute restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 22, 2012

This is a local landmark, perhaps best known for a former waitress by the name of Carrie Underwood. But the food, service and decor are the stars here. If you order a large pizza, be ready to take a lot of it home. Three of us split a large, and we took half home for the next meal (or two). Excellent selection of unusual combinations, all freshly made. This is NOT your franchise pizza place. And the chickens ... they are the decor throughout the restaurant. Well worth the visit. And the prices are excellent. I highly recommend.

“Best Pizza in Tahlequah”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

We very much enjoy the pizza here. Hand made to order. Nice place. Only complaint is it is too loud for us. But being crowded is good for the restaurant!

“Sam & Ella's Chicken Palace... It's all about the Pizza!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2012

My wife and I ate here during Okswagen Fest Volkswagen Show and fell in love with this place!
We had the Sam & Ella’s Supreme Pizza- which has Sam & Ella’s Red Sauce, sausage, onions, black olives, bell peppers, mushrooms, pepperoni’s, and enough mozzarella cheese to make me a very happy man!
What makes this pizza special is the crust and the thickness of the pizza. The pizza crust is thick, stone baked, and to me, tastes like a soft pretzel with just the right amount of texture. We had the “small” size pizza, but it was so thick we got full before we could finish the whole thing!
Sam & Ella’s also offers Subs and pizzas with funny names like Pie without a Face, Rock Island Red, Dominiquer, Big Sloppy Pie, and Sunrise each with a little different twist for those who want to try something different.
The environment is all about chicken décor, so if you suffer from Alektorophobia, aka Fear of chickens, the décor might scare you a bit, but the people are so friendly it’s worth every moment spent eating.

“Great service and great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2012

Went there twice in a week for lunch when in town for work. I had pizza both times and it was realyl good. The service was great and friendly. The only downside was that it seemed to take a little while to get the pizzas...but hey, I'll wait if it means it's going to be that good :)
