Toby and Ashley Shaughnessy opened Sam & Louie’s in 2013. Living in Iola their whole life, they wanted to offer something a little different to the town by offering a nice sit-down Italian Restaurant with a diverse menu. Loving not only Italian food but having a passion for NY pizza, Toby and his family teamed up to build the first Sam & Louie’s in Kansas. The dream of owning his own restaurant extended into building it with his dad and brothers; this became the true Family Restaurant in Iola. On any given day, you will see not only Toby, but his wife Ashley helping customers and employees give the best of themselves. Sam & Louie’s is known for their great Stromboli and Calzones and pastas with many Gluten Free options as well. Kid’s Night is always a fun time at the restaurant, and now the party room is the happening place for interactive Birthday Parties!
In 2015, the Shaughnessy’s expanded his business to include Sam & Louie’s on the Road! A new Food Truck concept where they can take the delicious food to any event in any surrounding town or on-location event! This is growing in popularity and keeping them very busy!
