Sammy’s Pizza on Central Ave.

– The Sammy’s Pizza in the 60’s was located on West Central Avenue. About 2 doors east of Broadway. The booths were in the back. The pizza’s were made in the front of the place next to the windows. I recall dough being tossed in the air during the Pizza making process. Next door to the west in the early 60’s I have been told the corner spot was the Bus Depot. The Bus Depot moved and in the late 60’s this area became Poor Roger’s Surplus (I believe the name is correct.) The only thing I remember about the store is that it seemed to have a continuous “Going out of Business” sale going on…. Eventually Poor Roger’s Surplus did actually “go out of business”.


  1. I don't remember Sammy's but as much as I love pizza I must have been there.

  2. I remember Sammy's well. My wife (then a student at Trinity School of Nursing) and I used to dine there. A few years later my wife was head nurse in the OB/GYN dept at Trinity and helped deliver one of Sammy's children and he responded by flooding the dept with free pizzas.
