During the early 1980′s my hometown had a delicious pizza joint called Godfather’s. It was the place to be after high school football games. I remember playing the table top Pac Man video game while waiting for our pizza to be prepared. I do not remember when Godfather’s closed and there were enough pizza restaurants in town to satisfy. However, as time passed we began to miss Godfather’s. The thick crust, greasy pizza with more cheese than most places allow was nothing but a memory. On occasion I was able to get a Godfather’s pizza out of town at a ball game or at the beach. These places were not quiet the same. Their style was more fast food, pre built pizzas that were basically heated up or nuked to get us moving out of the door with minimal waiting. This convenience is something I am willing to sacrifice to have a slow baked pie with two times the ingredients.
Recently a new Godfather’s franchise was offered in Rockingham. The word spread quickly and opening week was crazy. Talk of long waits and a pricier menu floated around. These were really not complaints. The quality of pizza is worth the wait and price. The pile of toppings is just the way I remembered and a smaller amount of grease that the original was present. Godfather’s has returned and instantly has become a popular place to meet for great pizza. FYI- The sweet tea is SWEET tea. just the way I like it.
From the Godfather’s website: Who would have ever imagined that a little pizza shop that opened in Omaha, Neb. more than 30 years ago would become the legendary pizza chain that it is today. The secret to our success is a rare combination of a commitment to excellence, an obsession with great-tasting pizza, dedicated people, and a desire to have a little fun.
Our mission: To profitably provide consistently good food and great service. Abiding by this simple mission statement for more than three decades has earned us a reputation that we intend to keep for several more. This commitment to excellence has helped Godfather’s Pizza grow and expand to more than 600 restaurants in more than 40 states.
