Pizza comes with tons of meat. They cut their New York crust into tiny squares so it's good for a large group especially, but fun for a casual date too. Clean place with big booths and an accessible bar. I haven't had problems with the staff or service, but since it is so close to the downtown bars I have seen undercover officers in there busting college kids for underage drinking.

If you are from the Chicago Suburbs and miss REAL chicago style pizza, come to sams. Unlike other businesses in Iowa City that claim they have chicago style, we all know its not. Sauce must be on top of the cheese! I suggest you call in ahead of time and place your dine in order because this pizza takes about 40min to make and bake. Their thin crust, however, is just as good and cooks faster if you are in a rush.

Good pizza and a juke box for music. Calm bar-type atmosphere, a good place to watch the game and eat at the same time.

Food might be good, but the service makes going there not worth while. We have been going there every week on Wednesdays for karaoke and recieved excellant service during the summer but now there is a different staff and they don't seem to care about us at all as regulars. The waitress, Jessi, was horrible and would take one order then go sit around for a while and not bring us drinks asap. She is constantly taking one order at a time and ignoring the rest of the people at the table, then she walks away not to the bar to fetch a beer but to talk to friends or play video games. She was also very rude to us because she said we "never tip" (because she doesn't deserve one) and no one wants to serve us (she's the only one serving Wednesdays). I would recommend taking your money somewhere else for much better service and courtesy.

We love these calzones! What a meal! An order of cheese fries, followed by a broccoli, tomatoe, feta calzone. This can't be beat! And they deliver!
