Eugene’s may be known statewide for their pizza but there is another item on the menu that has developed a loyal following, the ribs. The secret, they say, is in their barbecue sauce which like their pizza sauce recipe hasn’t changed in fifty-five years. In this bonus video, Sam and Mary Sue Knodel discuss the elements that have make their sauce so popular.
Eugene’s Pizza has been in the Knodel family since Arlie and Mary Sue Knodel purchased the business from Eugene E. Barger in 1967.
The family owned establishment is located in Glasgow, along a stretch of highway and railroad known as the Hi-Line. Arlie and Mary Sue Knodel purchased Eugene’s Pizza after two days of consideration and opened the doors with forty dollars to their name.
In 1992, Arlie and Mary Sue sold Eugene’s Pizza to their sons, Jeff and Sam Knodel. Jeff and Sam continue to operate Eugene’s Pizza with the same high level of commitment that Arlie and Mary Sue established throughout their tenure.
In 2015, Eugene’s was named the Best Pizza in Montana after more than 30,000 votes were cast. Eugene’s would win the title again in 2016 and has received numerous other recognitions and accolades over the course of fifty-six years in business.
