About My Father's Pizza

A Brief History of My Father's Pizza

'Big' Larry Robinson and his son Larry, founder of My Father's Pizza, throwing a pizza crust in 1990. This is how Dad does it.Larry and Donna Robinson opened My Father’s Pizza in June of 1990, the goal being to create a family friendly business that would become a tradition for visitors and year-round residents alike. The restaurant started as a mostly carry out and delivery with just a couple of chairs for folks who wanted to dine in. Business grew quickly as word spread about the high-quality ingredients and friendly staff. After adding a few tables and expanding the menu slightly, they realized a bigger space was needed. In 1995, My Father’s Pizza moved up Cherry Street to its current location, quadrupling the seating and increasing the kitchen space ten times. The addition of patio seating added a desirable three season seating option.

In July of 2010, Aaron Mathews and Micki Cowan bought My Father’s Pizza from Larry and Donna, effectively keeping the restaurant "in the family" as a tried and true Black Mountain tradition. Aaron and Micki, with their over 36 years of combined service to My Father’s Pizza, will always strive to maintain the same high standards of quality for both service and food preparation that Larry and Donna Robinson put in place when they opened the doors to My Father’s back in 1990.

Our goal is simple: provide excellent quality and friendly service to our friends, neighbors, and visitors to the area. Your comments, compliments, and suggestions are encouraged. Thank you for being our guest!
