Godfather's really deserves a 5 star rating, but I could only give it a 4 due to the wait. I placed my order online with no issues. Received my confirmation email stating that my order would be ready by 101 pm. I got there about 1250 but waited, because there were tons of people standing around near the door. At 1255 I decided to get out and that's when I realized why people were standing outside. The facility is tiny! It was so much going on and so many people waiting it was ridiculous. On top of that, I was told that I needed to wait about 15-20 minutes for my pizza. I was patient and waited and got my pizza at 135. So, I waited an additional 30 minutes. The pizza is a bit pricey, but it was so good. I ordered the large meat lovers and monkey bread and paid about $36. The pizza alone I would rate at a 5. The location is still very new so I can understand a bit. I will definitely go back and I would definitely recommend.
This is my second time eating here. I was excited as everyone else for its return. The first time was in October, and as expected, ordering by phone was crazy, and online kept crashing. But not before it received my money, and didn't send the order to the restaurant. No problem, I called, and a very nice manager refunded my online order and placed another one over the phone. The restaurant is a hub, so expect to order and exit. This is not a problem because other places are like this also. Service was not personal because they were overwhelmed, but we did receive a nice welcome from the two ladies at the counter, and they were handling it pretty well. When we received the pizza, it was really good. The pizza was hot and delicious. It had that same flavor as I remembered. The monkey bread was very fresh and good. Fast forward to when the hype dies down, February. I went in to order, no line. The service, (shaking my head). It took a while before anyone came from the back to greet us. When she did, we didn't receive a friendly hello, a smile or anything. I wanted to tell her, go back and try it again, but we just ordered anyway. Pizza was still good, but I had to search for my pepperoni. Overall, I'm glad it's back, but they have to hire the right people to keep them coming back. It's not all about the food. I will try again at a later date. PHOTOS ARE FROM THE FIRST VISIT
Sigh.had such high hopes after all the hype or Godfathers coming back to town. I remember eating there growing up as a kid, so you can imagine my excitement when found out it was coming back. Such a huge disappointment. I got the number 5 meal deal for an individual. Ordered a supreme pizza, but all I got was ham, tomato and cheese smh. Then I ordered the monkey bread as my side, it was so dry! Definitely needed more cinnamon and icing. I ordered a side of 5 wings since figured might as well try as much as possible while there. They were horrible. Definitely needed to be cooked longer due to the sheer size of them. I got garlic parm and flavor was just ok, felt like they just tossed sauce on after they came out the oven as compared to baking it with it. Idk, whole experience was sad. Only bright spot was the young lady behind the counter, poor thing was working it alonephone ringing nonstop and customers coming in nonstop, but somehow she kept a smile on her face. I made sure to let her know she was doing an amazing job because she truly was.
Second time coming to the new location, its been great just busy because of new location but the pizza itself is alright my family enjoy the different toppings but its something about the dough ummm the crust taste hard, chewy an somewhat stale.
Aside from not being able to sit and dine in at this place (due to being only carry out), the main reason for coming here is the food. And let me tell ya..the pizza is none like any other. The ingredients are fresh to the taste especially fresh from the oven, crust is spot on and the way the toppings are baked and baked within the flavorful cheese is deliciously done. Welcome back home to Charlotte NC and please dont ever leave this city again. A forever customer from yours truly..
