Goody Goody

Goody Goody restaurant in Tampa’s Hyde Park Village reopens for to-go service only beginning Friday, May 1, from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. seven days a week. The restaurant temporarily closed March 20 after the governor’s executive order closed all dine-in restaurants.

Customers pay and order online at or via phone at 813.308.1925. The pre-ordered meals will be delivered to cars behind the restaurant.

Dine-in service remains closed, and only same-day orders will be accepted.

Restaurant staff will follow stringent health and sanitary standards based on CDC recommendations. Additionally, guests will be requested to respect social distancing guidelines.

“We’re happy to get back to work and begin serving our classic Goody Goody ‘POX” burgers, butterscotch pie, fried chicken sandwich and other items from a streamlined menu designed especially for takeout,” said Richard Gonzmart, 4th generation caretaker and president of the Columbia Restaurant Group. “We’ve missed everyone.”

Now located at 1601 W. Swann Ave. in Tampa, the restaurant originally opened in 1925 and closed in 2005. Gonzmart bought the brand in 2014 and reopened it in Hyde Park Village in August 2016.

Although I’m monitoring email, all of the Columbia Restaurant Group street locations
are temporarily closed until further notice in compliance with the governor’s executive order.
We look forward to welcoming you back once we get past this crisis.

One of Tampa’s Oldest Restaurants Is Back!

“I’m ecstatic to bring back Goody Goody, this Tampa tradition that opened in 1925 and closed in 2005. We’ve lost too many of these iconic places over the years. Goody Goody is one of those places that helped create Tampa’s identity.I promise to do everything within my power to recreate the flavor and memory of Goody Goody. I also promise to go back to the way the food was prepared in the old days.” -Richard Gonzmart
