A Tampa institution, redefined. If you lived in Tampa back in the day (1925-2005 to be exact), you probably remember Goody Goody. The classic burger joint was a hot spot for locals day or night.
After closing in 2005, many thought the fresh, unique taste of a Goody Goody Burger would be gone forever. However, Good Sir Knight Gonzmart (that’s Richard Gonzmart, of Colombia Restaurant & Ulele) felt it was time to bring it back. Goody Goody was officially reopened in 2016, to much fanfare.
