When chef George Pinzino started cooking up the famous bar pizzas at Brockton's Cape Cod Cafe in 1982, the price of a cheese pie was $3. Thirty-one years later, the South Shore institution is celebrating a major milestone by rolling the prices of those same pies back to $3 for dine-in customers on Wednesday night from 5-9 p.m.
What sparked the special occasion? Pinzino himself. The pizza master has crafted 10 million Cape Cod Cafe pies. Yes -- 10 MILLION.
The "Phantom Gourmet" Andelman brothers will be in attendance to honor Pinzino and to hand out free Phantom Gourmet BBQ Beach Party tickets, as well as the Phantom's 2013 Restaurant Guide (while supplies last).
Check out footage above from the "Phantom" trip to visit Cape Cod Cafe, a Main St. landmark which is still run by the Jamoulis family who purchased the restaurant in 1947.
