About Slice & Ice

Ed Irving has been creating his original Italian Ice recipes since he was driving around town to serve them from a truck back in 1971!

Working alongside a partner, Bob Greenburg, they drove around the city to serve up various flavors of frozen treats, stopping by schools, sports games, and concerts to give everyone a taste! The two of them named these unique frozen treats after the “E” in Ed’s name and the “G” in Greenberg’s. (You may now know their first creations as Eegee’s, a business they ran together until they sold it in 2006.)

But Ed didn’t stop there! He went back to work creating Italian ice, using many of his original recipes! These tried-and-true recipes are not only all-natural and full of flavor, but they celebrate the 50 year history of him serving up sweets to the community. His ice is one-of-a-kind, carried on from the original food truck that roamed the city in the 70’s with the same sweet flavors.

Ed went on to start up Slice & Ice in 2020, where he serves rapid-fire pizzas, fries, sandwiches, and Italian ice all at affordable prices! The pizza is known to be hot and ready in just 3-minutes*, served in a personal pie or a “slice”– which is a half pie. The fries are great as-is, but we also make them “fancy” with incredible ranch, hot ranch, pizza, or garlic toppings! The hero sandwiches and salads are made with fresh, crisp ingredients that will bring you back in again and again for lunch.

And finally, the ice the started it all… it’s just as incredible and iconic as it was back in the summer of the 1970’s! He loves catering to the people and what they want, now having created 32 different flavors of ice– many of which are available as the flavor of the day, which can be made by request! He’s even gone on to create the Sweet Tea Ice, which doubles as an energy drink!

Come stop in to Slice & Ice for a bit of nostalgia and some real creativity, served up fresh!

* 3-minute for pizza is not a guarantee. This estimate is based on cooking time, however, delivery of your order may take longer based on orders in front of yours.

So good! Everything but the onion rings was excellent. And, even the onion rings weren’t that bad. The thin crust pizza with burnt edges was amazing, the sandwich was fantastic, the ranch fries (I put jalapeños on mine) were classic, and the frozen drink was perfect. It tasted like oranges and pineapples and shaved ice. Not processed, or artificial. I imagine it’s what they would’ve served in the seventies out of the back of their van. The only bad part is I live ALL THE WAY across town! Build an Eastside location!!!

Food came out fresh and it was so tasty! Instant fans. My husband ordered a hot veggie sandwich and liked it so much he got a second one. The kids and I had two of the pepperoni and sausage pizzas. So good! Service was fast and all of the staff was friendly. One guy who I assume was the owner came out and asked if it was too cold inside. Another staff member had asked me if I was still waiting for food because he noticed I had been waiting for a while but I let him know I hadn’t ordered yet. The point is, staff is really attentive. Since the lock down, I have been through the drive through numerous times for their snack boxes – half w cheese pizza with fries. It makes my kids’ day. So glad they took over this location.

The ices are amazing, with real pieces of fruit, and they are not overly sweet.  We tried the strawberry lemonade and the orange pineapple. They are refreshing and tasted fresh, not artificial. The garlic fries have the perfect amount of garlic and Parmesan and were cooked perfectly.  We both tried the Italian 3 Meat & Cheese sandwich and it is a great sandwich. We could immediately tell the bread was better and they use a superior quality of meat than the usual shops.  We’ll be back to try the pizzas.  Very friendly staff, fast, efficient, and they keep the place clean and tidy.  I highly recommend this place and hope they add more locations soon.

The wife has been talkin’ this place up so I decided to try it! 1st I live 20miles away from this location WORTH THE DRIVE! I wanted to try it all, I started with Italian Turkey no peppers and a slice or ½ a 12″ pepperoni pizza added the Orange & Pineapple Ice… Wow what a meal ate the pizza with ranch got a brain freeze. Was only able to eat half my sandwich took the rest home. Will continue to eat there after fishing at Silverbell lake. $15 for everything I recommend a free glass of water so you can calm the brain freeze and eat the sub.


First time I’ve tried slice and ice and OMG it is delicious!!! I got the pizza fry box which was perfect for me and my 5 year old. I eat the pizza, she eats the fries. The lime Italian ice was amazing. If I was really hungry I’d get the whole pizza for myself. But the half was perfect for lunch. I love how thin the crust is. The sauce isn’t too sweet like some pizza places. The pepperoni was perfect (not over cooked and crunchy like other pizzas I’ve had) I’m already ready to order from here again!!
