The famously controversial Garfield-themed pizza restaurant GarfieldEATS has officially shut its doors.
From Garfield-shaped pizzas to Garfuccinos, this restaurant quickly garnered local fame after food reviews went viral on Twitter.
ANOTHER VICTIM OF COVID-19, GARFIELDEATS HAS SHUT DOWN PERMANENTLY IN MY CITY. I ONLY GOT TO TASTE GARFIELD SHAPED PIZZA SLATHERED IN JON ARBUCKLE SAUCE ONCE, BUT THE MEMORIES WILL LAST FOREVER. GARFIELDEATS, I WILL MISS YOU.

“GarfieldEATS closed its storefront last Monday (we hate Mondays anyways), but aggressively continues with its e-commerce operations selling merchandise and Frozen Big Cow Lasagnas only which you can throw in the oven anytime; removing all other menu items and specializing in lasagna, one popular product everyone loves, so as Garfield since 1978,” the restaurant wrote in a press release. “No landlord can take that recipe away from us. Who needs another brick and mortar anyways! No one is looking to open-up, but rather work digitally and smarter.”
They might open another store in the future, but in the meantime, GarfieldEATS is sticking to selling lasagna online.
