Huge pizza buffet

This Godfather’s has a lunch buffet for $9.50 on weekends and I believe in the evenings during the week. They had a huge variety of pizzas on the buffet and would make one to your liking if you ask them. In addition to pizzas, there were some pasta dishes and salad bar to complement your meal.

Just recently, Godfather's Pizza on Dirksen have expanded their buffet hours to daily. Additionally, on the menu is broasted chicken and mashed potatoes. Just the creamiest buttery mashed potatoes. Such a wonderful idea to include these items. Staff are so pleasant, welcoming, and accommodating: Joe, Tam, Alexandra. It feels like visiting family!

Buffet spread begins at 5:00 p.m. Salad, mac & cheese, pizza. A variety of pizzas to suite your fancy; Staff are really polite and accommodating, if they don't have what you want, they'll make one for you. Managers are on top of things and tables and restaurant is kept clean.

Godfather's Pizza has done a great job for the last 6 years catering our student visits to Springfield and bringing food to the hotel. The food is tasty and the dessert (especially the chocolate chip cookies) are delectable. The kids always enjoy the food.

We have never tried a Godfather's pizza till this one. Superb is all I can say, and they have a few slot machines,walled off for those underage. You can play while you wait. My wife put some money in but got a bit more out, lol. Over $70 dollars. Not too bad. It made getting this pizza even more worth... More

During a recent trip to visit family at Christmas, we drove past this Godfather's Pizza. I have fond memories of this from teenage years, college, and thereafter. My hubby had never tasted Godfather's pizza, so I called on a whim on our way out of town. After a 10-minute (unacceptable!) hold, I called back. And was put through immediately to... More

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
