Sammy's Pieshakes

The powers of pie and ice cream combined

By Jeffrey David
Posted // April 2,2013 -

While we were visiting Sammy’s, my friend asked an employee what makes their “famous” shakes so famous. The response was, “Well, we put an entire slice of pie into every shake and mix it up.” We were sold and both ordered one.

Your concern won’t be finding a pieshake that you like; it will be trying to limit yourself to one. From banana cream, pumpkin pie, mint Oreo and chocolate-cream Oreo, to blueberry, cherry, four types of cheesecakes and two types of cobbler, your palate will be delighted and over-stimulated. What a nice problem to have.

There are a lot of dessert and shake joints around town that you can go to for your post-dinner cravings; it’s almost an uncontrollable urge. But there are none quite like Sammy’s. Who would have thought to blend a piece of pie into a shake? Whoever it was, I thank you. My diet and exercise routine may not, but it can be our little secret.

The minute you take your first spoonful of pieshake, you’re transported to another world. You will forget about your lunch partner and disconnect from the conversation—which you might have been about to do anyway, but this gives you a good excuse.

Please don’t limit your meal to a pieshake; you’ll need to chase it with one of Sammy’s delicious burgers and some fries. Might I recommend Sammy’s masterpiece, with sauteed onions, mushrooms, bacon and guacamole? That combination of toppings could make a shoe taste good. But instead of a shoe, they’re loaded onto a 1/3-pound burger covered with provolone cheese on a delicious bun.

Remember the fries as the final component to this meal. Go with the battered or sweet-potato fries. All of them are fresh-cut, but these will provide you with an additional level of flavor and excitement. As if you needed one more.

Sounds great so I'm sure most people around here will drive past it on their way to McDonalds.

HOW is it possible I didn't know of this place? I'm always on the lookout for a great shake and this sounds fantastic. Thank goodness for this review I can't wait to try it!

Some ideas are so simple, you are left wondering why you didn't think of it first? I mean "Cold Stone Creamery" wasn't anything new, we got in trouble as kids all the time for mashing up our cake into ice cream. But I can't believe I've never thought of blending pie and ice cream before. I'll definitely be visiting soon to try something with a delightful slice of pumpkin pie. Thanks for the tip Jeff!

I am not one to take anothers opinion on where to eat but after reading Jeff David's write up, I decided to try one, then 2 and so on. Each place has been spot on even though I tried different dishes.  So far so good mr. David- keep em coming. Are you a chef?

thank you
