Tarrant County pizza chain Mama's Pizza has opened a branch in North Richland Hills. Located near the northeast campus of Tarrant County College, this is the eighth location for this old-time chain.
Mama's president Jordan Scott says they'd heard from area residents who were Mama's fans. "We have had numerous requests over the past few years to come to Northeastern Tarrant County."
The North Richland Hills location is Mama's third foray into north Tarrant County, joining pizzerias in Keller and Southlake, where a restaurant opened in 2012.
Mama's has expanded its menu with the addition of wings, plus a selection of options that go beyond old-school pies: Those include pizzas with thin crust and gluten-free crusts, as well as a grilled chicken salad.
Mama’s Pizza was founded in 1968 with a unique style of East Coast pizza. The chain has won many "Best Pizza" awards, including three in 2012 from the readers of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Fort Worth Magazine and Fort Worth Weekly.
