Some locals base restaurant popularity on menu options and freshness, but the ultimate indicator of success comes down to the numbers.
Pie-centric site Pizza Todayreleased its list of 2014's most profitable independent pizzerias in the country. On the list is Houston's own Barry's Pizza, which came in at No. 93 with gross sales hitting $2,350,172.
Owner Barry N. Childers opened the eatery at a cabin on the corner of Richmond and Fountain View in 1983. The place, which is still family owned, has become a restaurant staple in the local scene for its deep-dish options, which feature a thick, chewy crust.
The Sicilian-style pizzas might not be the most authentic in the city, but judging by its sales the restaurant is clearly doing something right.
