Zeus Pizza, 224 Knox Abbott Drive: May 2012 (Closed again)   7 comments

Posted at 1:04 am in Uncategorized














Zeus Pizza was the follow-on operation to Tony's Pizza in Parkland Plaza, using in fact a good bit of the same signage and interior setup.

As you can see from these pictures, the restaurant was a long narrow space. I think it might have benefited from more window tables, but the one time I ate there, I found it pleasant enough. As I recall, I had the stuffed shells with garlic bread, and it was perfectly fine. At that time, the restaurant had a cloth sign for "Zeus" hung over the "Tony's" lettering, as you can see in commenter Andrew's photos at the Tony's link above. I presume that if they had made it over the initial hump, they would have eventually gotten permanent letters over the marquee.

I'm not exactly sure when they closed -- The April issue of Skirt magazine is still in the inside rack, but that may be bi-monthly. I'm going to say it was probably at the end of May giving them about an 8 or 9 month run.

UPDATE 1 August 2012: Zeus is open again. See the comments for details, but here is the website.

UPDATE 4 October 2012: As mentioned in the comments, Zeus is unfortunately closed again:



UPDATE 8 October 2014 -- Monterrey will be moving here from across Knox Abbott when their current building (bought by USC) is torn down:

  1. This storefront has reopened. They removed the "Tony's" portion of the sign so it just says "Pizza". I didn't see any names. I also didn't see any customers. This was at 9PM on Friday July 20.

  7. Back in 1994 and early 1995, this place was owned by an Italian family that had escaped from Brooklyn to SC, and they made ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC NY pizza. They wound up selling it to the people who opened up Tony's a few years later, and I went there maybe twice in 2004 , but the Pizza wasn't so good anymore, which was a shame considering the fact that I live about 5 blocks from here.
