The Surprising Place You’ll Find this Old School Favorite Pizza
Godfather's Pizza is one of those places I've heard about in movies (remember when Chunk ate his weight in Godfather's pizza?) but never actually believed existed!
Well, apparently, it did exist! And we had one here in El Paso. I'm part of several local groups on Facebook that include the popular Foodies of El Paso TX. & Surrounding Areas and a Northeast group and BOTH groups have proven the existence of Godfather's Pizza! According to many, Godfather's Pizza was located at Dyer and Hondo Pass and it was delicious!
Godfather's Pizza is one of those businesses that many miss and have fond memories of it, however, I think many would be surprised to know that Godfather's Pizza DOES indeed still exist in El Paso!
In the Foodies of El Paso TX & Surrounding Areas group, member Gabriel Jack Villalobos shared pictures of the Godfather's Pizza he recently got and you won't believe where he bought it!
"Yup, it's back!" Gabriel shared as he posted that he actually got this at a TRUCK STOP!
According to their website, Godfather's Pizza is available at LOVE'S Truck Stop in Santa Teresa, which I know isn't really El Paso, but it's El Paso adjacent, right? Villalobos was kind enough to share the location.
Villalobos also shared the menu:
Look at all those different types of pizzas you can get!
If you're wondering if this tastes just like you remember, Villalobos ensures that it does:
Yes it sure does BIGTIME!
While many were excited to hear that Godfather's is here, others brought up other pizza places they miss like Shakey's Pizza and Pizza Pros. to which I say "Pizza Pros STILL exists!" You can find Pizza Pros. at 10025 Dyer St.
As for Godfather's Pizza, I have to say I'm totally interested in trying it and cannot wait to get some and find out what all the hype is about!
