In March of 1981 we decided to bring to the public the type of pizza we made at social gatherings. Now many a defunct restaurant started with this same premis of bringing a family recipe that everyone raved about and taking it commercial only to be out of business within one year. Starting a restaurant is a bit like drilling for oil, one needs knowledge and luck; make that a heavy dose of luck (It doesn't hurt to have a strong back as well). Grady's has adhered to our hope of serving a pizza consisting of first rate ingredients and enough of them to set us apart and leave no one feeling cheated. We make every attempt to serve our guests according to their personal tastes or desires.
Welcome to our slice of the internet. Our goal is to introduce you to Grady's and have your visit be more than just a menu search. We are not and have never considered ourselves as a Italian restaurant. Our goal is to serve Central Arkansas fresh delicious food in a laid back friendly manor.
While continuing the story of Grady's we would be remiss to forget the origin of our sandwiches and fresh breads. Grady's opened for business in a gazebo type structure at the corner of Rodney Parham and Kanis just after the demise of the once popular Bimbos. Bimbos was known for their ice cream treats and burgers served on onion bread. Grady's is proud to offer our own Onion Bread , French Bread, and 7 Grain Whole Wheat Sub Roll baked daily in our kitchen by our long time family member Charles. These breads are truly fresh baked with no preservatives added. Most sandwich shops that claim to serve fresh baked breads use pre-formed frozen dough (full of chemicals), let them thaw, proof, and finally put them into an oven to bake. How weak is this? No imagination! We pioneered baked sub sandwiches in Little Rock and the "Grady's Grinder" is still a big hit. Thank you for your loyalty and patronage for all of these years.
You will discover that at Grady's you can order a pizza almost any way you can think to combine toppings. We thank God everyday for our strong backs and the heavy dose of luck He provides and hope that your dining experience will be enjoyable.
