There was not just pizza. There was chicken and all the fixings. As well as a decent salad bar. The pizzas were fresh and plentiful

I worked at Godfather's in college and almost every vacation we end up at a Godfather's someplace (we don't have them in St. Louis). I've longed for the pizza for years and miss it. The last few times the pizza was worse and worse... this time, the pizza was tasteless, the buffet was old and gross. The desserts were fantastic... More

Love the buffet-excellent price. Staff is courteous each time we go. I had not had Godfather's pizza since I was a kid, so when we moved to Springfield 9 months ago, I was super excited to go there!!!

Godfather's is a bit for expensive for pizza but no one leaves feeling as though they did not get enough to eat. It is predictably good food and service is outstanding.

We hadn't eaten at Godfathers for some time and decided to try the Lunch Buffett. OH MY……….. The Buffett was awesome. The fried chicken was out of this world. I LOVE wings and the wings were the BIGGEST wings I have ever seen and delicious. They offer Thin and thick pizza and if they do not have one you want... More

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!

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. The pizzas were really... More

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.

Thank Edward C
