San Diego’s renowned Gaslamp Quarter is a hot spot for casual dining, and Sammy’s Woodfired Pizza & Grill occupies a prime piece of real estate on the edge of Horton Plaza’s enormous shopping mall, just minutes from Petco Park, the San Diego Convention Center, and the historic Balboa Theatre. Open since 1994, this location is no stranger to the constant motion of Downtown, and the vibrant menu showcases simple flavor combinations and fresh, locally sourced ingredients. Specializing in traditional woodfired and artisan thin crust pizzas, but diverse enough to include mini burgers, Hawaiian ono tacos, and healthy wraps, Sammy’s Downtown is an ideal destination to enjoy half-priced Happy Hour Tapas before a Padres game or to share a hand-crafted pizza after a night at the Theatre. The atmosphere is upbeat, and the location is perfect. After a long day of shopping in Horton Plaza, take a break and dive into a fresh salad like Sammy’s Chinese Chicken with a mix of grilled breast meat, Napa cabbage, bok choy, carrots, bell peppers, sesame seeds, cilantro, scallions, crispy noodles, Mandarin oranges, and soy Asian dressing. Or, savor one of the more fulfilling entrée like the Flat Iron Steak with herb roasted fingerling potatoes, asparagus, tomatoes, and herb oil and the Oak Roasted Salmon Filet over an Asian salad with edamame, cucumber and ponzu sauce before you sink into one of the four signature sweets available for dessert. Healthy global cuisine is the concept behind Sammy’s Woodfired Pizza & Grill, and the menu delivers a broad selection with respect for diets of all kinds, including vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free.
