“As a local I can explain a bit”
Reviewed May 14, 2014

The other reviews are dead on. This place is an institution in Alma. The best and likely most authentic pizza around. They have been here many years without doing any more updates that absolutely necessary. The owner is well known as a feisty character who makes good pizza! Sam also has supported local 4-H and such by buying the champion steer many times. If you want GOOD pizza, this is the place. When you come be prepared for an interesting experience, but not a fine dining experience! By all means ask for blue cheese dressing to dip your crust in! They will treat you as a local!!!

“Ouch! Not a good experience!”
Reviewed December 26, 2013 via mobile

Maybe it was just our bad luck at being seated at the worst table in the place. Or maybe a couple waitresses decided to not show up for work that night. I don't know, but it was a somewhat surreal experience at Pizza Sam's tonight.
We were seated facing the door to the kitchen, never a good thing. Our poor waitress (Tasha) was literally running through the restaurant in an attempt to keep up with her tables. There was a phone near our table which rang around 100 times during our dinner (not kidding). Nice touch Pizza Sam.
The pizza and spaghetti our family ordered was good. The boss yelling "Tasha, get the phone!" Right over our table was bad.
Passing on Sam's next time we go through Alma.
