Family diners are often well-known for their classic fried plates and breaded treats, and rightfully so! At Goody Goody, we know a thing or two about old-school recipes and freshly baked pies. But no matter your dietary preferences or needs, we have the right local and fresh ingredients to create meals you’ll enjoy.

At Goody Goody, relax in a fun, family atmosphere and maintain a gluten-free lifestyle. We have servers who are trained to ask about allergies; procedures in place to handle allergy-specific menu orders; and a staff that knows what’s in the food. Our old-school diner menu includes options for everyone, including several popular gluten-free dishes.

One of our most popular items is the grilled Grouper Plate. Fresh, flavorful Gulf of Mexico grouper is prepared daily and served with gluten-free Goody Goody slaw. 

The BLT in a Bowl features all the robust flavor of a classic diner BLT without any of the carbs. Enjoy crispy-cut bacon with crunchy romaine, fresh tomatoes, avocado, cucumber and feta cheese tossed in our white balsamic dressing. 

And if you’re looking for something a little more meaty, order any of our classic Goody Goody burger or hotdog recipes on a lettuce bun or completely deconstructed. We serve the highest quality beef in our classic burgers and frankfurters (read more about our beef here), but we’re always delighted to substitute a fresh turkey burger patty, on request.

A different guitar from owner Richard Gonzmart’s private collection will be displayed monthly in the Goody Goody dining room. His love of guitars started during his adolescence when he played in a rock ’n’ roll band and it received another push when he was living in Spain as a 20-year-old and taking flamenco guitar classes.

In 1979, he opened the Café nightclub at the Ybor Columbia booking pianist Dick Rivers and occasionally sitting in himself.

Gonzmart has collected guitars all of his life and keeps many of his favorites in his office, including a double-neck electric guitar autographed by Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin, several Fender Telecasters autographed by Prince, a six-string acoustic signed by all the members of the Beach Boys and a Gibson Les Paul signed by Les Paul himself.

Through a custom playlist of hits through many decades, featuring music from Carl Perkins to The Eagles to Rob Thomas and beyond, Goody Goody™ taps musical memories as part of our experience marketing. And we’ll increase the frequency of songs by the featured artist that month, as represented by the guitar display.

Here are some of our favorite guitar residents: 

A prize from owner Richard Gonzmart’s collection: A Sawtooth signed by each member of Traveling Wilburys — George Harrison, Roy Orbison, Bob Dylan, Jeff Lynne and Tom Petty. 

You’ll also hear more of the supergroup’s songs playing in Goody Goody’s dining room while the guitar is displayed.

Not to worry. We’ll handle it with care.


In honor of Rolling Stones singer and front man Mick Jagger buying a mansion in Lakewood Ranch, we subbed in a new guitar at Goody Goody. 

 Part of owner Richard Gonzmart’s private collection, the Fender Squier Bullet Strat is autographed by Jagger, Richards and the rest of the lads.

 Jagger bought the 8,400 square foot home for $1.9 million in October, and the title is in the name of his girlfriend Melanie Hamrick, whose parents live in the area. The community is about 45 minutes south of Tampa, just northeast of Sarasota.

 We also added a few more Stones’ songs to our custom music playlist at the restaurant.

 Rock on.

American Diner

Miss Yvonne Freeman started at Goody Goody on Florida Avenue as a carhop in 1947 and later became a waitress, cook, pie maker and then co-manager.

When Goody Goody relaunched in Hyde Park in 2016, she shared long-guarded recipes, including the restaurant’s famous secret sauce on the Burger P.O.X. Though she passed away in 2019 at the age of 91, her spirit lives on in our warm memories of her at Goody Goody.

It’s the “secret sauce” that sets the Burger P.O.X. apart from all other burgers. Created in 1925 when Goody Goody™️ began as a barbecue stand, the sauce has stood the rest of time to make the P.O.X. Iconic. 

Taste a little Tampa history today at Goody Goody — or order a box of P.O.X. To take home to the crew — and be sure to ask for a little extra sauce!

​​Goody Goody™ features Old Meeting House ice cream for milkshakes, floats and other frozen desserts. For 66 years, the Old Meeting House was a beloved ice cream shop that served customers on South Howard Avenue in Tampa – 50 of those years with original owner Jim Strickland.

The richness and creaminess of the ice cream was legendary. After the ice cream shop went out of business in 2003, the brand was purchased by Sunny Florida Dairy in Tampa, which was established in 1911 and has served the Columbia Restaurant Group since 1920.

If summer in Tampa has official flavors, it might be the lime and orange freezes at Goody Goody. They’re frosty, refreshing and a little fizzy on hot summer days.

The lime and orange freezes have been a longtime treat at Goody Goody™ for as long as anyone can remember, with Old Meeting House sherbet delivering the fresh flavors. Sip and enjoy!

The Tampa Bay area is full of great restaurants, but not all of them are known for delicious Tampa-centric food. This Hyde Park diner originally opened in Tampa in 1925, serving up burgers like the Original Goody Goody Burger “POX,” with a side of hand-cut onion rings or fries. Its casual atmosphere and old-school style will take you back to a time when classic diners were the place to go before movies after church on Sunday morning. Richard Gonzmart, 4th-generation caretaker of the Columbia Restaurant Group and Goody Goody’s owner, fondly recalls picking up a sack of burgers “POX” (pickles, onions, secret sauce) for his family. Those world-famous burgers, with fresh-ground Angus beef and no filler, are back for you to share with your family today.

About our hot dog, The Rusty, Tampa Bay Times food writer Helen Freund said, “This thing was a monster, but legit.” The hot dog features Goody Goody™ chili, shredded cheese, onions and blistered jalapeños. The 1/4-pound Florida all-beef frankfurter on a house-baked bun was named for owner Richard Gonzmart’s beloved German Shepherd, Rusty. “Yes, I’m drinking sparkling rosé with this massive chili dog,” Freund said. Well-played, Helen. Cheers!

Fish on Friday? We have you covered with multiple menu items, including our Goody Goody™ Grouper Plate.
