“You ready for this? Fong’s Pizza is one of the coolest establishment’s I’ve ever been to. And I’m sad it’s not closer to Atlanta. Let me set the scene for you: Chinese decor, tiki drinks and serious pizza. Eating there with my crew was the most fun we’ve had on the tour yet. I’d recommend the Crab Rangoon (it was incredible), we also ordered the Beef and Broccoli, as well as a couple slices of the special Jalapeño Mac and Cheese pizza. I can’t wait to go back.”

“We ended up singing karaoke in an empty bar – Piano Man was probably the peak of the night. Yes, you all may have guessed, my singing was horrible as usual, but we finished the night demolishing an amazing crab rangoon pizza at Fong’s, of course. It was pretty epic…”

“You wouldn’t think Crab Rangoon, Kung Pao Chicken, or Hunan Beef pizza would be good, but you would be wrong — it’s phenomenal. So is the potato skin pizza. Holy moly! With dozens of options to choose from, this restaurant serves a food combo that just shouldn’t work but does.”
