Like Sunday dinners and Friday game nights, the atmosphere at a Sam & Louie's restaurant revolves around family, and has done so since its first location opened in 1994 in Omaha, Nebraska. Today, at each of the eatery's 22 locations, families bond over great conversation and an eclectic mix of casual cuisine from a menu inspired by traditional New York–style pizzerias. Eighteen specialty pizzas are hand tossed into thin-crust pies before being decorated with more than 35 toppings such as creamy alfredo sauce, Philly-style steak, and canadian bacon. The same daily made dough is used to construct calzones and strombolis, which ooze with mozzarella cheese and marinara sauce. Specialty dough can be whipped up to create gluten-free pizzas. The menu culminates in five 1/3 lb. Black Angus burgers and eight types of pastas.

The restaurant's ribs recently earned first place in the committee's choice category at the 2014 Johnston Green Days Rib Cook-Off.
