Larry and Donna Robinson opened My Father’s Pizza and Pasta 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 with most orders being 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, with views of downtown Black Mountain and the Seven Sisters mountain range.
In July of 2010, MFP server 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. Micki, with her over 25 years of service to My Father’s Pizza, will always strive to maintain the same high standards of quality for both service and food preparation that was put in place when the doors to My Father’s opened. Today, Micki has passed on her role to her daughter Chloe, who is adding her own contemporary flair to the business she plans to make her life’s work, ensuring that My Father’s will continue to be a favorite in the hearts of Black Mountain.
We look forward to hosting you soon!
