Editorial Review of The Godfather's Pizza

Given the fact that the name of this pizza parlor mirrors a certain Academy Award winning classic film, a question must be asked: If the store expands to other locations, will they be known as The Godfather II and III? And if so, will the second store be as well regarded as the first one, with the third one being undone by poor casting?

You'll quickly forget such silly things once you walk into The Godfather's Pizza. You'll be too busy wondering, "Peanut Butter and Jelly pizza? Are these people serious?" Yes, they are. While The Godfather's Pizza menu offers the usual items such as ribs, pasta and chicken, the item that immediately stands out is the Peanut Butter and Jelly pizza. Though it sounds disgusting, it's really just peanut and jelly layered on pizza bread. They were out of jelly at the time I went there, but since Godfather's holds late-night hours (1 a.m. weekdays; 2 a.m. weekends), you'll have more than ample time to try it sometime.

Godfather's regular pizza is not particularly noteworthy; I've had better, and I have had worse. But with a slice running an easy two bucks, a large menu and friendly service, when it comes to going to other pizza joints instead ... wait ... wait ... it's on the tip of my tongue ... ah, fuggitaboutit.

Average cost: <$10
