Kicks! Quicks | Looking for a wedgie? Try Fox’s Pizza Den

In case you need a giant pizza with 52 slices, Fox’s Pizza Den has you covered.

This pizza chain began in Pennsylvania and has gradually migrated to the south, even finding three homes in the Grand Strand area. The newest location is located on S.C. 544 in Conway, a few miles south of the Coastal Carolina campus (with CINO cards accepted).

This restaurant in the Big Eazy strip adjacent to the Myrtle Ridge Shopping Center only says Fox’s Pizza on the front, but walking in leaves no doubt to its origins. Two Pennsylvania teams are strewn on the walls: the Pittsburgh Steelers and Pittsburgh Penguins. The interior is small but clean, with two large screens on the wall playing, you guessed it, sports.

The company is family owned, which means all the individual franchises can be family-run as well, and as a family restaurant, there isn’t any alcohol served.

They do, however, have Pepsi products plus 2-liter bottles.

Sides include bread sticks (plain or cheese), mozzarella sticks, even pepperoni sticks. The array of fried sides is always tempting, especially those bacon cheddar wedge fries, but if you’re looking for something a little more healthy, go for the zucchini slices.

Not to mention, if you want a wedgie, Fox’s is the place to go. Fox’s wedgies are their version of a sandwich, with pizza crust as the bun. If wedgies aren’t your thing, stick with the hoagies. Customers can buy a whole wedgie (a 9-inch pizza crust) for $6.99 or pay $7.99 for a 13-inch hoagie. These sandwiches can easily be halved as well (both physically and price-wise).

Salads are available too, with this particular Fox’s having a salad buffet during their lunch hours, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Stromboli, pasta and wings also show up on Fox’s menu, though the highlight of this franchise is their pizza, to no surprise.

The smallest size, a bambino, is 6 inches and The Big One is a whopping 30 inches and easy to share (if you really want to). They have deals, such as two medium one-topping pizzas for $15.99. Each topping costs extra and the prices varies with the size, but if custom pizza is what you desire, then have at it.

Ultimately, their gourmet pizzas are really where they shine. They have classics, like the Meat Supreme and Veggie, plus a few not seen as often. The Steak Rancher has sirloin on top along with ranch dressing. They even have a Pierogi pizza, which has mashed potatoes on top along with onions and cheddar cheese. The Taco pizza tastes just like a taco on bread, and they give you taco sauce and sour cream on the side so guests can add as much or little as they like.

Pizza is hard to hate. Even a bad pie can still be pretty good … because it’s pizza. Luckily, Fox’s Pizza Den has nothing to worry about.
