Stevie B's Pizza, 5424 Forest Drive #100 (at Wal-Mart): 2009   17 comments

Posted at 5:34 pm in restaurants

Although I originally designated Tuesday as my "pizza night" to conform with the practice of the local Pizza Hut when I was living in Fayetteville, I generally don't go to buffets anymore. I would rather wait and pay to have something exactly like I want rather than take what's out. That being the case, I've never been to this Stevie B's Pizza located in an outparcel strip at the Wal-Mart complex on Forest Drive.

Judging from their signage, their main marketing pitch (for supper, at least) was for after-game free-for-alls by kids' sports teams. That certainly seems like a viable market niche to me, especially with no Chuck E. Cheese on this side of town. In the event though, perhaps not. I may be wrong. This place may come back on October 29 as the closed for remodeling sign suggests, but closed for remodeling is a standard, hopeful, dodge of places that have actually gone under. Add to that the fact that this is a new building with Stevie B's being the first tenant, and that looking inside shows no actual remodeling being done, and I have my doubts, especially since their phone number has been disconnected.

UPDATE 3 Nov 2008:

I was wrong -- they're back. Good for them!

UPDATE 17 June 2009:

Gone again!

UPDATE 26 Aug 2009: Took the 'temporary' out of the post title -- they are gone for good this time.

UPDATE 25 March 2010: Added full street address to post title.

UPDATE 21 March 2011 -- It's now a Navy Federal Credit Union:

  1. "Closed for remodeling" - rrrrright. If that were the case you'd expect to see signs of construction.

  2. I ate lunch here pretty often and am sad to see it go. It was like a CiCi's but the food was a step up in my opinion. Every time I was there all the other customers were soldiers from Ft Jackson, not kids' soccer teams.

  3. IRRELEVANT TO POST: But heads up to Ted - Ace Hardware in Parkland Plaza (Cayce/West Cola) will be closed as of 10/11/08.

  4. Thanks, always a shame to see a non-Home Depot/Lowes hardware store go. Most of the independents are already gone.

  5. I loved this place. I've tried calling the number they have listed and it's disconnected, probably not a good sign. It was a step up from ci ci's.

  6. I drove by on Friday and it says now hiring so I think they really are coming back.

  8. Hey, I work in Play N Trade (local video game store) in the same plaza with Stevi B's. I never ate there before the closing, but have had plenty of the pizza since they reopened, and it's excellent for the price. Head and shoulders above CiCi's. I hear from other customers in the plaza that the food is better than it was previously, so if you haven't tried it since they reopened, I suggest you give it a shot.

  9. So Stevie B's is open again?

    Highly recommended - the Eastern Buffet at the other end of this building. Sorta expensive but GREAT food.

  10. My vote for good pizza joing is Paulie's in that mini strip mall next to where Happy Bookseller used to be.

  11. Paulie's has a very good pizza. They also link their own sausage for very good Italian Sausage sandwiches. Their ambience is unfortunately a bit of a disservice to their food. They *really* need some padded booths!

  12. Stevie B’s is once again closed. This time I believe for good. Their signs have been removed from the building.

  14. I didn't know about this til today when I went to eat lunch there. That place was awesome and always clean too. I can't understand why it didn't make it.

  15. That's a real bummer. I was hoping we'd get one on the Irmo side of town... I guess that's still possible, but doubtful. I've been to the one off Woodruff(?) in Greenville -- it's like going to CiCi's except they charge an extra dollar, which seems to translate into a much nicer atmosphere and better food... not to mention a LOT more sanitary-looking.

  16. I think they were actually cheaper than cici's since cici's seems to go up in price everytime I go there.

  17. Stevi B's is now gone for good. Went there today for lunch and the sign is down off the front of the building. Place is all done for. Hate it since they were so much better than CiCis.
