The pizza business is booming in downtown Cedar Rapids!

We told you last week that Betas Restaurant, located at 1006 3rd St. SE, has closed its doors.

It didn't take long for a new tenant to snatch up that building, as a popular Des Moines-based pizza restaurant is moving in!

The Gazette says Fong's Pizza hopes to open in early May, according to company President Andrew Massoth. The NewBo location is expected to be very much like the Des Moines restaurant and will be the third pizza place in downtown after years without one.

Their website describes Fong's as a place that will:

proudly serve Asian-inspired pizzas & appetizers,sandwiches, salads and desserts

The restaurant is also home to an old-fashioned tiki bar. Cedar Rapids is excited to see this new restaurant coming to our area.
