Worst

This place is no longer run by italans its run by a china man with spanish workers. They sold out there. Mad getto.

Pizza Sam lives on 8/17/2010

CSMobileUser2, keep your racially charged comments to yourself......pizzerias have been staffed by Latin Americans for decades and they do a damn good job. (Spanish people are from Spain just in case you didn't know) The owner is neither China man or Chinese. Food is still awesome. Try it, you will not be disappointed. more

Used to be good 7/6/2009

The pizza used to bee really good before... thin crunchy higher quality cheese... used to also have the best white slice. Now the pizza is slapped together... under seasoned, oily and there slices have seriously reduced in size and increased in price more

What a joke! 4/10/2009

I ordered a pie at 5pm today which is Good Friday. I understand that this is a busy day for pizzerias. When I ordered I wasn't told that there would be a wait. Ten minutes later the delivery person called me and said that I would have to wait until the second driver came in at 6PM. I said fine no problem, so I called back at 6:10 to make sure my order was going to be delivered. The person answering the phone told me that the 2nd driver was not coming so I couldn't get my pie. I asked why the other driver couldn't bring it and he said he was busy with other deliveries. I asked why he couldn't have delivered mine in over an hour or even after I called and was told because the driver doesn't want to come here. Unbelievable, I can't believe they still have a business. Pros: I didn't have to tip Cons: I wasted an hour of my life more

Disgusting and Filthy jr89 9/14/2008

We should have expected jr89's behavior when confronted with facts. By the way jr89, I don't need to \r man-up, I'm a woman! Now, go ahead and make one of your sexist right wing remarks! Is this the only way you know how to behave or deal with people to Man-up! Macho Macho Macho! Can anyone imagine being a woman, mentioning anything to a person who's behaviors is to man-up! Can anyone imagine going up to this person and asking, why does your soggy pizza drip grease? Why do you have so much filler in your food dishes? Why is your establishment and how the inspector's put it - a harborage condition for vermin? Does the term germs mean anything to you jr89? If your place is so sanitary, why do you consistantly receive the type of ratings years after year? Pizza Sam's sanitary violations are: 1.) Canned food product observed severely dented. 2.) Facility not vermin proof. Harborage or conditions conducive to vermin exist. 3.) Sanitized equipment or utensil, including in-use food dispensing utensil, improperly used or stored.4.) Evidence of flying insects or live flying insects present in facility's food and/or non-food areas. Folks they should also add a hostile jr89. If this is the way that jr89 responds, can you imagine the rest of the staff? So much for atmosphere. Go to the NYC Resturant Inspections and ask yourself, why isn't this place closed! I'm sure the owner will now write a few more reviews, but it won't change the inspection facts. What's next, slapping women who have the audacity to speak facts, I know Man-up. Let's see you use your Caps key and argue with the inspector the next time she comes around! Don't forget to man-up! I guess you'll have some of your female stooges write a few reviews now, so they can Man-up! Oh jr89, you're so man-up! Check please! I'm sorry, I needed to man-up - CHECK OR ELSE! Pros: Let's eat in Astoria Cons: Everything and man-up jr89 more

This pizzeria has good pasta dishes 7/24/2008

We visit Pizza Sam mostly on Fridays, the food is good, better than most italian restaurants I've been too. They give you big flavorful portions, I have tried the linguini with white clam sauce, chicken francaise and shrimp scampi. We also favor the combo heros, they are really yummy. We will keep going back.\r \r Pros: Delicious food Cons: difficult parking, place needs to tidy up. more

Best Food Around For Miles 6/7/2007

GREAT FOOD, GREAT SERVICE, GREAT PRICES,GREAT PORTIONS; THIS IS MY TYPE OF RESTUARANT. THE FOOD IS ALWAYS ON THE MONEY AND MADE THE WAY IT SHOULD BE,I NEVER HAD TO COMPLAIN. I HAVE BEEN GOING TO PIZZA SAM'S FOR A LITTLE OVER A YEAR AND SOMETIMES I TRAVEL FROM BROOKLYN AND EVERYBODY KNOWS THAT WE HAVE GREAT ITALIAN FOOD IN BROOKLYN. I HAVE EATEN IN ALL THE GOOD AND EXPENSIVE RESTUARANTS, BUT I STILL GO TO PIZZA SAM'S A COUPLE TIMES A WEEK.FOR THOSE WHO HAVE NOT BEEN LUCKY ENOUGH TO TRY PIZZA SAM'S; GO TRY IT AND FOR THOSE WHO TRIED IT ONE TIME AND DID'NT LIKE IT GO BACK AND TRY IT AGAIN.THERE IS A REASON WHY PIZZA SAM'S BEEN AROUND SO MANY YEARS. \r P.S. THE STAFF IS VERY FRIENDLY AND HELPFUL Pros: EASY PARKING ,NO WAITING more

No place like Pizza sam 6/5/2007

Pizza Sam is a clean well rounded restaurant. Great for kids or adults .Sam Jr has maintained the true essence of Italian food and the serving is always enough to fill anyone up. There is such a variety of Italian food that this restaurant can gratify anyone?s craving. Every time I go I know that I can order anything from the menu and be more then satisfied. I recommend that everyone stops by Pizza Sam, you will leave there not only full but happy as well. The atmosphere is always welcoming and the staff will make your lunch or dinner a time to remember. The food and the atmosphere is what keeps you going back! Pros: best Italian food, great for familys more

Best Pizza in town 6/4/2007

Loved the food and atmosphere!!!!!!!!!!\r the owner and workers work great together. \r The pizza parlor was opened in the late 1960's by the current owner's father. Sammy Sr. had a reputation as a wonderdul kind hearted human being and he has passed his values on to his son Sammy Jr.\r The food is excellent. My husband and I stop for a quick bite whenever we are in the area Pros: friendly, inexpensive,good food more

Simply The Best 6/4/2007

The absolute best Pizza! This family style pizzeria always makes you feel right at home. The quality of the food is phenomenal, and the portions are enormous; there?s always enough to take home. Pizza Sam has a great atmosphere. Both customers and staff are friendly, and there is always a welcoming and vibrant vibe throughout the store. The owner, Sammy Jr., has a kind heart and is quick to befriend. With so many places to eat in Queens, I have to say this is one of my favorites. Pros: Great people. Great food. Great prices! Cons: None. more

STOP AND SMELL THE PIZZA 6/4/2007

My father opened Pizza Sam in 1967 and after his passing in 2002 I've continued the tradition he started!Personally speaking there is absolutely no way anyone can speak badly about our food.I've seen a few bad reviews and all I can say peoples personal feelings about the staff or prices is one thing(by the way u tell me where you can find dinner for 4 for under $20)The staff problems have been corrected lil by lil.But when it comes to the food I only use the best.From the produce to the cheese I buy the best veal on the market and evertthing is homemade with love! The dairy market is so unstable that I am forced to raise my prices(first time since 2001) All I can say is come and see me. I'll take my shirt off my back for anyone and treat customers like family.I grew up in this place as well as thousands of others and we will continue to be the best around no matter how many of the compitions friends post bad reveiws!(YOU'LL NEVER BE BETTER THAN US)Please feel free to visit myspace/pizzasam to view some history.When you come by or call just ask for JR if there's ever a problem.Did I mention we were also on GOODAY NY LIVE ON FOX5 and QPTV'S ""THE JOE GAFFNEY SPORTS SHOW"" Not to many people can say that can they. Lots of Love-Sammy Jr Pros: THE LOVE Cons: NOT OPEN 24 HOURS more

Garbage and awful 5/4/2007

Call the sanitation department and dump this food. I called the city to complain of the filth. Is anyone listening? The veal parm was tough and sandwich was soggy. Theres nothing like having a sandwich that drips grease. The service was lazy and slow. This place likes to deep fry using old and unhealthy grease.and has found a way to ruin Pizza. The pie was barely warm and had a funny smell. We think we saw them take it out of a box, maybe a return from a delivery. We complained, but that fell on deaf ears. Pros: There are no Pros about this joint Cons: Too many Cons to list more

Pizza Parlor? Your kidding, right? 3/28/2007

Talk about bad and greasy food. The spaghetti and meatballs had grease residue river slicks in the tomato sauce. Pizza, Pizza everywhere, but none you really want to eat. When I say everywhere, I mean eaten Pizza on the tables, floor, garlic powder, napkins and sticky soda stains. Price, forget about it. Service, another forget about it. Noisy and yelling, you can't forget about it, its there. How did they miss this place when they went after Taco Bell??? Pros: Thumbs down Cons: Thumbs down more

Ugh-ugh and more ugh!!! 3/15/2007

I used to live in Jackson Heights and this WAS a great Pizza place. I was trying to think of what to say that reflected my recent experience - then I read the other reviews. The other people pretty much summed things up: disgusting, filthy, greasy food, pricey, terrible and RUDE service, food stained tables and floors. I could go on and on and on and on, blah-blah-blah.\r \r I now invite my friends in Jackson Heights to have Pizza with me in Manhattan. Hello Mom Pros: Ugh, ugh and more ugh!!! Cons: Ugh, ugh and more ugh!!! more

Bad Food, Bad Service, A real greasy spoon 3/15/2007

It maybe a new look, but this place has gone downhill. Sammy Senior was one of the great ones. It was fun going there and getting good pizza pies, great hero sandwiches and other food for our Yankees tail gate parties. Service was great, friendly family atmosphere. You sometimes felt like staying there, eating and watching the game on the TV. Now the pizzas are mushy and greasy. The hero sandwich meats (Veal, Chicken) is tough. The meatballs taste of filler and dry. The sauses are to acidy. The Staff is rude - forget about it!!! Higher prices for nothing. We miss you Sammy, Joe, Ernie and Sal - now that the new Yankees season is upon us, our tail gate parties arent the same. Pros: Its 3 strikes and Pizza Sams is out Cons: To many to list more

Disgusting and Filthy 2/28/2007

Pizza Sam has been in our community for a number of years. Sammy the deceased owner operated a family Pizza Paylor. Food was good, atmosphere friendly. It was fun to take my children or order for a Pizza party for kids. Enters his son, the place is re-modeled and has become filthy with food scraps on the tables from other people, soda stains and used napkins on the floors. If you have to go to the bathroom, better go before you get there or wait until you get home. The pizza is very greasy and there is so much filler in the meatballs, they should call it spaghetti and fillerballs!!! I've witness smoking in the kitchen against fire codes and health standards. There's nothing friendly about this place, unless you like seedy looks from the son and his help. Pizza Sam is not the family friendly good food place it once was. Pros: Thumbs really down!!! Cons: Everything!!! more

Go to Rays Pizza, Dominos or buy from the supermarket instead!!! 2/5/2007

Let's look at the facts, the other reviews were written by the new owner, not like his father at all. People need to check the New York City Department of health, Restaurant Inspection Information, as they cite:\r \r 1.) Facility not vermin proof. Harborage or conditions conducive to vermin exist. \r 2.) Evidence of rodents or live rodents present in facility's food and/or non-food areas. \r \r Since 2003, Pizza Sams inspection violations have been as high as 46 points and never lower then 13 points. This is a real Ptomaine Palace - eat at your own risk! Pros: You only have to go a few blocks for better and safer food Cons: The owner is the problem and his behavior reflects on the workers more

""This is one of the great ones "" 1/16/2006

Oh Yea! I grew up on this stuff. I remember when they opened in 1968 ,or around then. It was a instant hit. This is your typical NY style home grown pizza parlor. Take out , small sit down area surrounded by stacks of pizza boxes, and the street right outside the door with all the sounds on NY. I went back to visit the old neighbor hood 2 yrs ago (2004) & was so happy to find them still open. It was a trip back in time since it had been at least 25 years since I was there. It was just as good as ever. Outstanding pizza. Pros: Price, ambieance, the food Cons: may not find a seat more
