ANKENY, Iowa — A favorite downtown Des Moines pizza joint is expanding to Ankeny.
Fong’s Pizza opens its second location at the District at Prairie Trail at 11 a.m. Tuesday.
The owners say they made a few changes from the downtown location. The Ankeny restaurant is nearly four times bigger, has more drink options, and an expanded menu. That includes Chinese empanadas, onion rings, and wings with a variety of Chinese-inspired sauces. Fong’s will also have breakfast pizza on the weekends.
“Fong’s in downtown Des Moines started in 1907 as a Chinese restaurant, and so we’ve expanded from what took over, over there as a kitchy little pizza joint in downtown Des Moines and has now expanded into this bigger, much different restaurant,” said Antoni Konecne, general manager of Fong’s.
The address for the new location is 1450 SW Vintage Parkway Suite 120, Ankeny.
