Marco’s pizza review: A dine worth your time


The Conway Marco’s Pizza opened its doors Sunday Sept. 4 and celebrated its ribbon-cutting ceremony the following Thursday. I went to discover to discover if this is a convenient place for college students to eat.

Marco’s has been in the making for almost a year. The restaurant is located on Highway 544 in front of across the YY parking lot and is on the same side as student housing on Highway 544, making it a hassle-free dining option. Walking to Marco’s from local student housing can take as little as five minutes.

There is also delivery available for campus housing. Because it’s so close to campus, your meal will stay warm and fresh.

“We get students walking in all the time,” Spencer Jordan, Marco’s district manager, said.

Students are visiting Marco’s because it has later hours of operation than on campus dining locations, making it instantly a place to heavily consider when Hicks or CINO are closed. This restaurant would be a great place to eat for campus holidays, game days, or for any gathering.

When visiting on Thursday afternoon, I found a community filled with students, friends, and families. These customers were relaxed and chatting about life events. It was a bonus when the room felt warm as I could smell the fresh baked bread.

The smell was irresistible, so getting breading options was a must for me. The medium pineapple pizza and the cinnasquares were my personal go-to options. Seeing the big portions of the meal made it clear that it is worth your money. My meal was sweet, delicious, and stayed warm for the entirety of my meal.

If you are unsure what to order, Jordan recommends the popular pepperoni magnifico or the steak and cheese sub. The menu also has a diverse selection, including gluten-free Caulifl ower crust and a handful of vegan-friendly options. Marco’s is working towards catering to Coastal students. Jordan and his team are looking into specials focused toward students and hopes to receive feedback on student interest for future deals.

“Your voice will be heard,” Jordan said.

As the business grows and continues to expand, I can see Marco’s being a popular spot near campus. Its pickup is convenient, yummy, and filling for any busy student.
