Dining With Denise Neil

Three new restaurants in town

Cheezie's Pizza just opened at 3804 W. Maple.Three new restaurants have opened in Wichita over the past couple of weeks.

One is Cheezie’s Pizza, a chain based out of Oklahoma that’s know for its super-cheap pizza. It opened two weeks ago at 3804 W. Maple (316-945-2439). Cheezie’s is carryout only, and its large, one-topping is famously priced at $4.99. Hours are 3 p.m. to 9 p.m. Mondays through Fridays, noon to 10 p.m. Saturdays and noon to 9 p.m. Sundays.

Also, Fat Tony’s, the pizza place and bar I told you about a few weeks ago, opened this weekend at 417 E. Douglas (316-303-9316.). Its hours are 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Sundays through Thursdays and 11 a.m. until 2 a.m. Fridays and Saturdays.

It also appears that Wazabz Sushi Bar & Grill is open on the east side at 3236 N. Rock Road (in the original Sumo space.) The restaurant has been on-the-way for almost a year now, but I’ve had a heckuva time getting anyone on the phone. The restaurant’s Facebook page was updated on Sunday and says that it’s open but because of “city qualifications” it’s not serving sushi yet. I’ll try to get to the bottom of this one before the week’s out. The Facebook page lists the restaurant’s hours as 5 to 10 p.m. daily and describes the cuisine as “hibachi food at a fast pace.” The phone number is 316-978-9009.
