“World's largest family pizza restaurant: pizzeria in Colorado Springs, CO”
FARCO’S PIZZA CO., 2910 East Platte Avenue, Colorado Springs, Colorado: Fargo's is the world's largest family pizza restaurant, seating 500 guests in the two-level structure, having a total of 14,000 square feet, and parking for 170 cars. Authentic detailing of the Victorian period was abstracted in a wooden, tum-of-the-century structure. One hundred and twenty original leaded and stained glass pieces of art as well as countless pieces of authentic artifacts purchased in the Denver and Central City area have been incorporated into the structure itself. The exhibition cooking area depicts original art portrayed in a two-wall, tile mural showing portraits of Fargo and his sweetheart, Sophia. Carried into the same area via tile murals is an array of the ingredients that go into the pizza making. A unique family-oriented restaurant opened in 1973.
Place has bit of museumesque to it with the stories behind the stained glass. Also when your order is ready, they light up your number "ghost style" behind a mirror. There are mirrors in every room!
I grew up around the Colorado Springs area and we always went to Fargos for a celebration. I live in Texas and I still dream about the pizza and the atmosphere. Its unique from its antique self playing piano, mannequins joining in on the dining, chandeliers, booth seats, arcade, stuffed animal heads and last but not least the ordering system where you can see if your order is done by a lighted number on a mirror. This place was a large part of my childhood and hopefully a nostalgic pizzeria in my future I can still visit.
Kids seem to love Fargos but I honestly found it a little creepy and not worth the mediocre pizza. It's supposedly located in an old brothel and the decorations combined with the clothes they wear made it hard for me to forget it.
Wonderful pizza. I love the atmosphere! I grew up going to Fargo's pizza as a child and LOVE that it is still the same great place that I remember from my childhood.
