Arrived at 7 on a Saturday night and were seated about 30 minutes later. Orders were taken 10 to 15 minutes later yet food wasn't served til 8:30. The pizza was alright but certainly not worth a 1 1/2 hr wait! The decor was shabby. The table next to us was compted for something......long wait perhaps? Don't believe I will... More

It is a step back in history to old pizza places. It could use an update but the pizza is terrific and you soon forget your surroundings. They probably need more TV's with live football feeds. One tv plays only DVDs.

Dropped in for a pizza because friends recommended it. What an interesting place. Waiting for the food wasn't a chore, as there is so mucn to see and do while there. Secret compartments, private snugs, great things on the walls. And the pizza is good too. If you are in Waco, suggest you drop in and give it a try.

Great service and especially the food. Decor is very eclectic. No one can go wrong eating and Poppa Rollos.

This restaurant was established in 1969…and I'm not sure if they've ever cleaned or dusted any of their quirky artifacts. Not that this is completely necessary but it does make you take notice of other things such as the filthy walls, floors, worn out furniture and then there is the unseen kitchen. Kinda scared to think about that! Now the... More

I'm not much of a beer drinker, but this is the first place I would go if I wanted one. They were, for some reason the coldest and best tasting I've had in a long time! The wait staff was just excellent. I can't say it was the best pizza I've ever had, wish they had a thin crust offering,... More

Just joined the group of people that have to eliminate gluten from their diet. My daughter recommended this restaurant because she knew of their gluten pizza option. I must say that it was great! Thank you to the owner and manager for being on the leading edge of this growing demand. Thank you also for the great service. !

The pepperoni's were so tasty and crunchy. Service was fast for us but a couple with kids right by us took forever and the manager had to comp food. But overall my experience was great. My salad was good and I had a medium pepperoni pizza. Delicious. A place to take the kids. Get there before the crowd.

I love their pizza and since moving from Waco, I'm sad that I can't find anything close to it. Great atmosphere. One of my favorite places to eat lunch. The waitstaff is always pleasant.
