Eating on the Cheap: $7 Pizza & Fries Snack Box at Slice & Ice

Whenever we share an article about Eegee’s, there’s at least one person on social media that invites everyone to pay a visit to Slice & Ice at 1905 W. Grant Rd.

There are a few reasons why and one of them is because Ed Irving, owner of Slice & Ice, started creating the original Eegee’s beverages back in 1971 — serving them from a truck. He and Bob Greenburg teamed up to bring the fast-food giant to life, Ed being the “E” and Greenburg representing the “G” in Eegee’s.

They sold the restaurant chain in 2006 and Ed opened up Slice & Ice in 2020, introducing pizza to the mix of sub sandwiches, frosty drinks, and crinkle-cut fries.

Eating on the cheap

If you’re looking for an inexpensive lunch or dinner with a sense of nostalgia, look no further and give Slice & Ice’s Snack Box a whirl. For $7 you’re treated to a slice of cheese pizza, which is actually half of their 12-inch pizza, and fries.

If you’re feeling fancy, do what all fancy eaters do and glamorous those fries. They’ve got garlic, hot ranch, pizza, and ranch fries.

 

This is just one of the many cheap menu items available at Slice & Ice. We can talk about the Family Fry Box that’s only $7, any of their sandwiches that come in under $10 each, or any of the 12-inch pizzas but we suggest you head in to see it all for yourself.

In other words, just about everything on the menu is under $10 (there’s a 2.5-gallon bucket of gourmet Italian ice for $24).

Speaking of their gourmet Italian ice, they’re made with natural ingredients and stray away from artificial coloring. On the menu, you’ll find flavors such as Orange Pineapple, Strawberry Lemonade, Watermelon, a Sweet Tea Ice, and rotating flavors.

Overall, they’ve got 32 flavors (not at once) that they rotate through each month and they’re always asking for requests if you’ve got a specific concoction in mind.

Slice & Ice is located at 1905 W. Grant Rd. For more information, visit sliceandicetucson.com.
