I remember loving Godfathers pizza as a child. So while driving through Springfield while on vacation we stopped in and ordered my favorite childhood pizza, Taco Pizza. I was very disappointed to find they had changed it. Godfathers taco pizza use to have a refried bean sauce as the first layer on the crust. Now it offers a sweet tomato... More

The Godfather's in my hometown closed down and when I was looking for a place to eat lunch Godfather's seemed like the best choice. Their lunch buffet was a reasonable price and it was delicious. They made any kind of pizza we asked for and it kept coming fresh. I wish I could remember the cashiers name because she was... More

I have not seen a Godfather's in years, but there is one in Springfield Mo. and apparently they do not own a vacuum cleaner. The pizza was over loaded with cheese, sauce had no zing, but what are you going to do, when traveling and you are hungry.

Our 7th grade class ate here on our Springfield trip for dinner. It was an average sized buffet with soft drinks, salad bar, about 7-8 pizzas always on the buffet, calzones and garlic bread with cheese. My friends and I loved the Cinnimon Sticks that were the "dessert" on the buffet. At first they looked stale and average, but after... More

Normally I don't review fast food/chain eateries, but this one deserves recognition! Very good pizza on the lunch time buffet. Most excellent service!! After we seated, the server asked if we had a favorite pizza. We said yes and since it was a little wierd selection, she said start with the salad bar and I'll see if we can do... More

Went to Godfathers Pizza to try out the pizza buffet. From the second you walk in you are treated like an old friend. I had two disabled individuals with me, so my hands were pretty well occupied. At one point the girl from behind the counter came over to ask if she could have them prepare a pizza of my... More

Godfather's is one of the few pizza places in town that tastes homemade. It's always hot and fresh when we go there. The service can be slow at times. You order at a counter, and they bring your food to your table. We were behind someone at the counter one time that didn't know what they wanted, and instead of... More

Place has really gone down hill fast! They're totally focused on those new gaming machines which are right up front where my kids see first hand. Not a family place anymore and we're not coming back. Plus the pizza was just so-so!

We had not had Godfathers pizza since we were kids, and it did not disappoint. Still excellent!!!!!! The staff seemed annoyed that we were there. Lucky for us our daughters love getting refills silverware and plates cuz it makes them feel like grown-ups. Next time we will have it delivered
