We can be a little pizza snobby! This was great pizza! Thin crust with great flavor on top. On the way home from vacation, happened to see it on a sign. Sure glad we did.

My family has eaten here a lot over the years. However I feel the food quality has gone downhill the past few times we've visited. For example, I order a 1 topping medium pizza with green peppers. I should have looked inside the box before taking it home because the green peppers were black and looked like little black twigs.... More

My family and I have been eating at Fortel's Pizza Den in Fairview Heights for over 12 years. It was our go to pizza place in the area. Over that decade, we've paid them over a thousand dollars (yes, we really like pizza). On November 7, I placed an order for delivery. I specified no onions on the pizza and... More

While visiting family in the St Louis area we decided to get pizza for dinner one evening. Rather than Pizza Hut or some other chain pizza place my son recomended Fortel's. I called and ordered 3 different pizza's and some toasted ravoli. By the time we got there the pizza's were ready, but they failed to make the ravoli. So... More

Good pizza. Nacho pizza is pretty good. You will pay extra here for all of the different types of pies they have. Interior of restaurant needs a little updating.

Had take out at the golf course. Loved it so much had to stop by for dine-in. Great food, great prices. Don't let the outside appearance fool you.

Really good pizza but no atmosphere and no service. You literally have to wait on yourself. Take a menu when you come in. When you're ready to order go to counter. Need a plate or fork? Go get it. How bout another beer? Go back to the counter. Really nice people but if I wanted to wait on myself I... More

Fortel's is probably the best pizza around. It's not foo foo, its just good pizza. The meat lovers is by far my favorite. It's a little bit higher than most places but well worth the money.

This is undoubtly the best pizza in town but it is extremely over priced!! You could eat at a really nice steak restaurant for what they charge.
