NYC feel in downtown Tampa – Growing up in the South and until I lived in Queens for 5 years I thought nothing could top Pizza Hut. How wrong! And when I moved back here I thought Id never get that one-of-a-kind New York slice without hoping a plane to the Big Apple. Until I found Eddie and Sams. Its the real deal. Get a slice or calzone, cram into the hot and loud place at lunch and youll swear youre on the Lower East side. That is until you try to hail a cab without making a phone call first. Ive had better meatball sandwiches, but this is THE place for real NY pizza.
Skyscrapers on the wall – Lots of pictures of New York City can be found at this pizza oasis in the middle of Downtown Tampa. It is for good reason. This pizza is as close to Midtown New York City as you can get. Transplanted folks from the Big Apple needing to rediscover their roots should head to Eddie & Sams. Don't know if it is true or not but I heard the quality is due to the fact that they import their water from NYC. People in NYC actually dring water from their faucets. They also have snow and dirty streets!
Best Pizza in Tampa Bay – Eddie and Sam's is by far the best pizza in Tampa Bay. I have been to a lot of pizza places in Tampa, and none of them come close to this place. Their specialty is NY style pizza, but they have sicilian, white pizza, calzones, stromboli, etc.
Best Pizza this side of NYC. – I dare you to try this pizza and say it is not the best pizza in the Tampa Bay area and possible ever. Try it any way u want. Plus you can get 2 slices and a drink for $5. But dont stop at pizza. This place doesnt make anything that is not appealing to your tastebuds. I recommend the cheese steak, meatball, turkey club subs, Chicken Parm roll, Ziti, any pasta dish for that matter and fantasic wings too. My personal Fav is Brocolli on white sause pizza. They take brocolli saute in olive oil and garlic on a white sause pizza topped with moza cheese. Staff is friendly from head cook Josh, or Matt, Hank, Mike and guys behind the counter. Great Eats at a good price.
Pizza for a Pizza Lover – Having relocated to Tampa from NY a number of years ago, It is an unbelievable relief to find such an authentic pizzareia. The staff is friendly and the food is GREAT.
Absolutely Fantastic! – By far the best pizza in Florida. I'm from the Northeast and I know good pizza. I drive from St. Petersburg to downtown Tampa just to have their pizza. I also recommend the antipasta and the chicken parm sandwich.
Only great pizza in Tampa Bay – I am another one of those snobby native New Yorkers who complains that everything is better back in New York. That said, I have to say that Eddie & Sam's can hold its own to any pizza up north. If you don't like it, you don't know pizza.
Best Pizza in Town!!!! – Eddie and Sam's is by far the best pizza I have tasted, I would say its as good or maybe better than alot of the pizza places in N.Y !!!! I love the atmosphere and the hustle and bustle of the place. I've never had a problem getting whatever I wanted (even chicken rolls) at anytime even after 7pm and now they are open on Saturdays aswell I take the kids, the service is great. My personal favorite is the tomato basil,mmmm! A must if you are in downtown tampa.
One of your favorite customers – I live in Brandon. I visit Eddie's and Sam's at least once a week via the Selmon Expressway. This Pizza restaurant is by far the best I have ever tasted in Florida. I am originally from Philly with many relatives in NY. I realize the hours are not for everyone in Hillsborough County, but plan a day, take your friends, itis well worth it. The lunch specials are awesome. "Hats off" to you guys at Eddie's and Sam's. You have my business and I tell everyone to stop by and get a wonderful pizza !!
The best pizza in town – Eddie and Sams is a favorite spot for myself and my coworkers to visit any day of the week. I can honestly say that this is the closest pizza to a real New York pizza - just fabulous. If you can handle the orders taken quickly and yelled out, along with a hot restaurant with no air conditioning, it's well worth it in the end!
