Well, if there’s one thing Herman Cain’s run for President is doing, it’s bringing awareness to a pizza chain most people have never heard of.

I’m not one of those people.  I have actually  heard of Godfather’s.  I’ve just never had it.  I knew there was near the Cork and Sprinkle intersection, but it’s so far from home, I’ve never actually considered it.

While J and I were watching the conclusion of the NASCAR season and cheering on Tony Stewart, I got hungry for pizza.  Maybe it was because I just read something about Herman Cain…I really don’t know, but I looked up the Godfather’s website and Google and found online ordering.  That was good enough for me.  I asked J if she wanted a couple pieces of pizza.  She said yes…but it really didn’t matter.  I was going to order anyway.

The menu is very typical of a chain pizza joint.  They do three different kinds of crusts and offer a few specialty pizzas as well as the make your own.  I stuck with what we like best.  I went for a large thin crust with bacon on the whole thing and pepperoni on half.  I wanted a little more than just the pizza so I added bread sticks to my order. 

The bill was around $20 and I paid online with my credit card.  I did have to create an account which I don’t really like to do, but other than that, the online ordering process was simple and quick.

The pizza was to take about fifteen minutes and that’s about how long my drive was going to be.  When I walked into the small building on East Cork, a lady behind the counter asked if I had a take out order.  When I said yes, she asked if my name was “xx” and I said yes.  My pizza and bread sticks were waiting.  Since I already paid online, all I had to do was sign the sales slip and I was on my way.

We popped open the Styrofoam box with the bread sticks first.  There was a lot of bread in the container.  The bred sticks were a buttery bread with Italian seasoning on top.  There was a container of marinara sauce included.  The bread sticks were alright but nothing special.  We only ate half of them before throwing the rest in the fridge for a later meal.

The pizza was very well done, just like I asked.  At first, we couldn’t tell which side the pepperoni was on, but J eventually found one hanging off the end.  The pizza had a very crispy crust and very crispy topping.  J thought it was a little salty, but I didn’t notice.  I thought it was quite tasty and greedily ate my half.  I put the rest of J’s half into Styrofoam box with the bread sticks for a midnight snack.

The pizza from Godfather’s was pretty much what I was expecting.  It was delicious, but nothing that really stands out from the competition.  The only reason I would say I wouldn’t order from them again is because they’re on the other side of town.  What I would do is take advantage of their lunch and dinner buffets which are available 7 days a week.

    It’s been awhile for me. There used to be one on the west side that delivered but they closed a few years ago.

      I’m pretty sure this location is the only one left in Michigan….
