In my opinion, the best slice in all of Tampa is the Buffalo Chicken slice from Eddie & Sams! This has been one of my favorite spots since I moved to Tampa in 2014 because they always make you feel right at home in their bustling and constantly busy pizza shop! I love that you can see the slices as you walk along the glass, so you know just what you're getting yourself into before you take your first bite. Some of the best slices from Eddie & Sams are the buffalo chicken, the lasagna, the BBQ chicken and if you still have room, don't forget about their garlic knots - they're to die for!
