I am happy for the first post in my food blog to be from Zoey’s Pizza in Marion Iowa. Zoey’s has been around for a long time and they are famous for their Chicago Style Pizza. They opened their doors in 1991 and have been serving up great pizza ever since. One of the best things about Zoey’s (aside from their pizza) is their location. They are right on the “strip” in Marion and in a quaint building decorated with eclectic and retro wallpaper, pictures, and memorabilia that fits in with the antique shops and historical sites surrounding it.
Staff was well dressed, clean, fast and friendly. Immediately bringing my 3 year old son crayons and a picture to color. The restaurant is clean and inviting. Menus are easy to read and simple though the options are great. If you arrive after 5:30 or so, especially on the weekend, expect to wait at least 10-20 minutes. The wait can be tedious because there is only a small area inside to stand in and no sheltered area outside. The prices vary with Chicago style being the most expensive overall, but you will NOT leave hungry and can easily make 3 or more meals out of a large Chicago Style pizza. Please visit their website to see the menu.
