An old familiar pizza joint that once resided in Auburn is returning to the area. Mr. Gatti’s Pizza in Opelika plans to add another slice of fun to downtown!
Spotted! A banner on the side of 704 First Ave. near Resting Pulse Brewing Company reads: “Coming Soon Mr. Gatti’s Pizza”. Some local residents may remember Mr. Gatti’s from back in the day when there were locations on South Gay Street and Opelika Road in Auburn.
Now, Mr. Gatti’s Pizza in Opelika is the first of three potential area locations. In fact, a quick location search on the company’s website notes two more are coming soon. Auburn and Dadeville are both listed, but no further details are given.
What we do know is the process for Mr. Gatti’s Pizza in Opelika has begun! The rezoning request for the 4,705-square-foot building was on the recent Opelika Planning Commission’s June meeting agenda.
About Mr. Gatti’s Pizza
Serving up satisfaction slice-by-slice for more than 50 years now, Mr. Gatti’s Pizza was established in 1964. According to Our Story, founder James Eure opened The Pizza Place in Stephenville, TX. Five years later he moved to Austin, TX, and changed the name to Mr. Gatti’s Pizza in honor of his wife’s maiden name.
While the name changed, Eure’s recipes and standards did not. Now with more than 70 locations across the Southeast, thousands of diners experience the difference. What’s the difference? Every pizza starts with fresh baked yeast-in dough, a signature tangy sauce and 100 percent real provolone cheese. Then it’s topped with quality ingredients to your liking, or pick a Gatti’s Favorites.
Other menu options at this pizza-buffet include salads, mac-n-cheese, bone-in wings, cheese sticks, dessert pizzas and more. For the full menu, which may vary by location, click here.
Plus, Mr. Gatti’s has a game room!
