Mr. Gatti’s is Established

Our founder, Mr. James Eure, opened The Pizza Place in September 1964 in Stephenville, Texas. In 1969, he moved to Austin and opened “Mr. Gatti’s” as a tribute to his father-in-law. Mr. James Eure worked long hours to master the elements that make people crave pizza: real cheese, yeast-risen dough made fresh every day, our signature tangy pizza sauce, and toppings that can’t be topped. It wasn’t long before Gatti’s was popping up all over Texas and the Southeast. It turns out that people crave fun as much as they crave delicious pizza, so we decided to give them both!

We Find Our Look

After years of bringing people delicious pizza and family fun, we designed and rolled out a logo for Mr. Gatti’s. We use that classic “G” to this day.

Honesty Is the Best Policy

During the 80s and 90s, some buffet stores featured state-of-the-art game rooms, beginning an evolution that eventually led to the creation of GattiTown, a 25,000-square-foot superstore devoting 10,000 square feet to a colossal Midway-type game room. That’s when we decided to tell the world what we were about: the best pizza in town…honest!
