He is thankful for the loyal customers that are still stopping by for their slice of the pie. Rishard Bogue and Nancy Downing call themselves Mr. G aficionados. Frequently eating in the downtown Bryan area it's usually a hot spot for food traffic.

A quarter of a century, Mr. G's has welcomed everyone who walks through their doors like family. They’re keeping that same feeling even when they have to stay 6 feet back.
"We don't shake hands but we share the smiles that they are giving to us," Cerone said.
