Damgoode Pies Planning To Close Rivermarket Location
Damgoode Pies is closing up shop in the Rivermarket.
The popular pizza joint has been slinging pies at 500 President Clinton Avenue since 2015.
According to a Rock City Eats report, the restaurant will close on March 15.
Founded in 2001, Damgoode Pies will have three total locations remaining after the Rivermarket spot closes. The chain has two locations in Little Rock at 2702 Kavanaugh Blvd. and 6706 Cantrell Rd. There is also a Fayetteville location at 37 East Center.
Restaurant Transitions: Damgoode Pies Closing On Rodney Parham Us Pizza Moving In Maumelle
Damgoode Pies is closing its take-out/delivery outlet at 10720 Rodney Parham Road, Little Rock, effective Dec. 31. The mini-chain, in a news release issued last week, explains that the storefront operation opened in 2005 as a way to introduce their pizza and pasta to west Little Rock, but “We’re really a full-service restaurant at heart,” says Damgoode founder Jeff Trine. “Ultimately we just want to find a location out west that truly represents our brand.” They’ll stop making regular deliveries west of Interstate 430 until further notice, but they’ll continue to supply catering deliveries throughout central Arkansas. Damgoode’s all-purpose phone number is 228-1000.
And speaking of pizza, U.S. Pizza is in the initial planning stages to move its Maumelle restaurant from 650 Edgewood Drive, in the vicinity of Lake Valencia, to 109 Commons Drive, where it will front toward Maumelle Boulevard . Drew Weber, U.S. Pizza’s chief executive officer, confirms the move — the time frame is somewhere around six to eight months — is to make the restaurant more visible, and also, he says, to “bring it up to spec,” as it will become the prototype for all the mini-chain’s future outlets. The restaurant phone number is 851-0880. Reporter Jake Sandlin, who covers things north of the Arkansas River, notes that the restaurant did a survey about just such a move last year.

Damgoode Pies Little Rock
This was the WORST EXPERIENCE EVER! The cook was hollering curse words at a person in the drive thru where other patrons can hear! Manager comes around and says NOTHING! Didnt even tell him to quit! My kids did NOT need to hear this! Will…NEVER go back or recommend!More
Overall experience just ok. The staff was friendly. Chose to eat here because other places were closed. Almost $30 for a large deep dish. A large is plenty for 2 people to eat. Wish we ordered a medium. In comparison to other deep dish pizzas…this one was just ok. Wish the crust had more flavor. They do have different sauce option but we just went traditional.More
I was really impressed by this little spot. It’s really funky how it sits in a little old two story building in the parking lot at the street corner. The kitchen and restroom are downstairs while the dining room is upstairs with a TV showing…sports. It seems like it should be across the street from a college campus.It’s run by one guy, and he runs it well. He takes your order, waits your table, buses tables, and rings up your order. I don’t know how he does it all.We ordered a large Stuffy. It’s sort of a Chicago style double crust pizza with the toppings in the middle and the sauce on top of the top crust. It was served steaming hot and delicious. We were full after just two slices. YUM!Highly recommended to all.More

Reviews For Damgoode Pies
Expensive slices, I get they’re trying to survive the pandemic etc. but almost $4.50 for a normal sized slice. But I tried a pie with the pink sauce and I need to change my review, they make good pizza gotta say. They might be the best in Little Rock.
Pizza and the feeling at this place is great. Everyone at our table was very satisfied. There was quick and friendly service. It has a great atmosphere. I can see why they have so many reviews.
