    There is rumor that the G.D. Ritzy’s restaurant that was founded in Columbus in 1980 by a former Wendy’s executive, may be making a Columbus return. The closest G.D. Ritzy’s restaurant open is in Evansville Indiana. Also open in Huntington West VA.

    Does anyone remember this restaurant and would you patronize Ritzy’s if they re-opened in Columbus?

    That’s a huge yes.

    I might make a trip just out of pure nostalgia. I grew up in Clintonville during the ’80s, and Ritzy’s was the place to go for meals after baseball games and/or rewards for doing well in school. Now, I’m sure that it wasn’t nearly as good as I remember it being (Jeni’s and even Northstar are indicators as to the quantum leap in culinary sophistication that this area has taken in the past 20 years), but I’ll probably give it a try.

    I loved the Ritzy’s on Gay St. when I was growing up. Still my favorite non-Dirty Frank’s hot dog.

    I recall them having the best tasting Oreo ice cream- O-O-Oreo. I loved their peanut butter cup, too. I would love to be able to eat some again so I will be watching for news on this.

    Please pass along to your founder friend that there is a massive groundswell of nostalgic craving for this to return. GD Ritzy’s was our meal after soccer games growing up, and would love to see them return.

    Now, if we could only get Zantigo’s to return, my childhood fast food fix would be complete.
