This is also an Evansville locally owned classic. Everything from the thin crust pizza to the sandwiches are very good. However this location is not in a very good section of town. Still safe but not perfect. Worth the drive down to

We love the pizza (the Italian sausage is yummy) at the Kentucky Avenue Roca Bar. The (no smoking) bar area has a "Cheers" atmosphere where diners and sports fans can watch and talk about their favorite teams while dining. Very casual.

This place rocks. Great atmosphere and great food. The outside patio is an awesome place to eat. They have live entertainment through out the summer on the patio.

When my wife and I travel to Evansville for pleasure or business we always stop at the Roca Bar for a superb thin crust pizza that can only be found here. The tradition began while we were dating in college and they still prepare the pizza the same way and it always satisfies.

We like to try different kinds of pizza around the tri-state area . Since we love pizza and there are so may different ways to prepare it......we like to try a variation. We will pick a different "pizza joint" ever-so-often and try something new. Roca Bar has always made one of the best pizza's in the Evansville area for many... More

This recipe for pizza hasn't changed in the 40+ years I've been going here. It is one of Evansville Best Pizza's still to this day.
