Fortel's Pizza Den

ADDRESS: 471 N Kirkwood Road, Kirkwood, MO 63122

CUISINE: Italian, Pizza, Sandwiches, Wings

FEATURES: Handicap Access, Kid Friendly, Smoke Free, Vegetarian Friendly, Delivery available

DETAILS
Fortel's Pizza Den is a favorite spot for pizza lovers of all ages. Owners Bob and Jan Fortel have expanded their pizza palaces - the original opened at Mackenzie and Heegie in 1981 - with a number of St. Louis-area franchises. Appetizers include the usual fried fare of wings, beer-battered onion straws, cheese sticks and toasted ravioli, a local favorite. Fortel's uses a simple recipe to make their dough and basic tomato sauce on site. For something different, try one of the other sauces: white, pesto, beef gravy, barbecue or southwestern. Several pizza specials, served with a medium-thin crust, are named after family members. Try Bob's Deluxe (sausage, pepperoni, mushrooms, green pepper and onion) or Jan's Taco Deluxe (hamburger, onion, tomato, jalapeño peppers, extra cheese and nacho chips). You can always create your own, choosing from more than 30 toppings, ranging from the basic vegetables and meats to the more unusual - shrimp, eggplant and roast beef, for example. The menu also offers salads, sandwiches and pastas. Every location features a kid-friendly game room.
Beer and wine available. Serving lunch and dinner daily. "The atmosphere is always friendly and laid-back, which is how pizza parlors should be."
- St. Louis Post-Dispatch
