My husband and I were visiting California from Chicago and decided to drive up from LA to Pismo with very little hope of finding any Halal restaurants. We were pleasantly surprised when we found sam’s. When we got to the restaurant with our hungry kids and were greeted so warmly by one of the owners. She was genuinely a sweet person. We were almost done with our meal when Robert, the other owner, came over to ask us how the food was and just for some small talk. The talk ended up being a great 2 hour discussion, because as Robert said best, “you get more than Pizza here!” What a humbling experience listening to Robert’s story in making sure they made their restaurant 100% Zabiha/halal. It truly was one of the highlights of our entire trip. We can’t wait to visit again some day!
Food: we got a large half white chicken and half cheese with pepperoni - it was delicious!
DELICIOUS!!! They sell by the slice so we like to come here occasionally. And we are always satisfied. Simply yummy
If you like really cheesey pizza, then this is the place. Pizza is really good and the sizes are larger than typical pizza places. A bit more expensive than other places but worth the price.
This amazing pizza!!! So filling and makes you want to come back for more even though you are already full!!
Ignore everyone who did less than 5 stars! This XL pizza will blow your mind! My teenagers were 100% Shocked! The man at the counter was funny! I’ve never been to this area & this is my new favorite pizza place!!
We were just visiting and looking for Halal food .
Stumbled upon Sams giant pizza and what a find it was. The food was amazing. And servings were pretty good too. Definitely worth a try.
Delicious. What a find. Good job Sams. Turned in for Taco Bell and saw you. We literally scalded our mouths devouring the goodness. =)
A must try if you like real pizza and not some basic franchise pizza. Delicious made fresh and friendly service. If your in pismo and don’t want seafood stop by Sam’s and treat yourself
We ordered alot of food pretty late at night and It was still very very good!! Highly recommend. Love supporting small businesses.
My Family and I loved EVERTHING! The food was Amazingly delicious! The Customer service was so welcoming and very energetic. Thank you. We will be coming back!!!
The Works Chicago style pizza pie was very delicious. Definitely a little bit different than your true traditional Chicago style pizza (almost no sauce at all), but tastes 👌
Always great to come back home n have one ofmy childhood favorites.
Terrific! Don’t let the location put you off. Crust, ingredients all yummy. Quiet best pizza in the area!
We like Sam's slices to go special. The location is handy on Grand Ave.
I come to this superb place from time to time since I love the good air that is part of this place. The crew is very helpful and experienced. The service is very efficient. Also, the food they serve is highly distinguished. I came more than once and I was always joyful. The expense is fair. I highly suggest this place to to all.
Their gluten free pizza is awesome.
Sam's salad with their homemade italian dressing is amazing. My favorite salad from the local pizza places.
I'm not the type to ever leave reviews whether good or bad but myself my boyfriend and step daughter all decided to stop and get some food and by accident we happened to come up on this place and boy are we glad we stopped here. It just so happened that the owners themselves were there when we got there and as soon Roberts wife saw us she was so helpful and friendly. Robert even came from the back and had a conversation with us. From just the 30 to 45 minutes we were there you can tell how much passion they have for their business. We will definitely be back every time we come into town.
Their gluten free pizza is awesome.
Sam's salad with their homemade italian dressing is amazing.
The pizza was delicious like always.
Wow! Best food that I’ve had in a long time! The spaghetti & meat balls was excellent. I’m looking forward to eating my leftovers. I will be back!
Great food and friendly service. Perfect for the family.
They have.best.pastrami sandwiches and Philly cheese 🧀 also the pizza is great !! The owners are very nice
Awesome pricing and service. Great wait times, they’re super fast!. The Hawaiian pizza is my Favorite!
Best pizza on central coast. Best eaten hot out of oven. If you have to take it home, preheat your oven to 375 and bake it for five minutes, for the in-house/restaurant experience. Their giant pizza is 30 inches of deliciousness.
Excellent Pizza! The other day we got a monster huge pizza with the super meat toppings and it from a friend and it was amazing. It was huge enough for like 6 to 8 people to be filled. They have a good thin crust with thick toppings. This is a chewy NY style, not a crunchy crust. I did not try the thick style. We had to go there ourselves so today we got the 2 medium deal with 2 toppings. We tried the pepperoni and black olive and the Canadian bacon and pineapple. Both were excellent! I would fully encourage you to go here for your pizza fix first and foremost!
The pizza was amazing as expected. As big as the pizza was I kept on wanting just one more slice. Super good crust, and The sauce, along with the cheese, was delicious. Been here multiple times, and Will definitely come again!
Always good. A little pricy but there is always leftovers
Used a delivery service and got my pizzas in 20 minutes. Tastes great.
Very kindly employee, quick and tasty food.
Live out of town looking for a place to eat this place was very delicious it was the greats pizza I’ve ever had 😁
The pizza by the slice is delicious and HUGE. Seriously, bigger than a slice of Costco 'zza
Really good lunch deal for six bucks. Good food and nice people.
The best pizza place. The food and the service were excellent and to top it off they have a free arcade.I highly recommend this place.
Best calzone I have ever had. Flavor
Superb, and size was great for the price. Not a
Normal size calzone, these were a pizza with toppings and another pizza crust on top— Huge. New standard for me.
Absolutely delicious pizza and breadsticks. The giant pizza slice is so filling and not overly greasy. You can get a giant slice of pizza 3 breadsticks and a drink all for $6.00 and be set for the day. I highly recommend this place!
Went there because we were passing threw and read that there was great reviews, total truth we got there and the girl at the counter was great very friendly and welcoming even though we got there 20 mins till closing time. We order pepperoni and a mushroom pizza totally recommend, 10/10 recommend. The pizza has fresh ingredients and great flavor we will be coming back when we pass threw again.
Great pizza and decent prices. I like the inside decor and kitchen area where they make your pizza.
The pizza was very good. We came here after moving some friends and had a bunch of us (10+). Ordered two of the 30 inch pizzas and was a bunch left. The staff was great and very helpful. The service was great even though we came in just an hour before closing. They personally recommended the subs but we didn't get a chance to try them.
The food is amazing and the atmosphere is special. We were made to feel like family from the moment we got there. Also, I think it might be the best gyro I have ever had. Me and my family will absolutely be back.
Turns out the owner lived here in San Diego for a long while. Got to watch him throw a giant pizza crust into the air. Really nice guy, and one of the only places to eat in Pismo at 9pm on a Saturday night in the off-season (October thru March.)
We wanted ricotta on our pue, but he said the locals never ordered it, so he quit carrying. I guess there's no Italians in Pismo.
We ordered pepperoni, jalapeno and pineapple. Was good, but could have been a little thinner crust for me.
Stop in and say hello, and order a pie!
