I love the hidden doors and trying to find your way to the restroom. The best part is the atmosphere, but the pizza is good. Not a fan of the smokey bar that we walked through on our way in through the back door, but it was clearly labeled. The game room where we sat for our party was... read more

This was our first time to visit here, but it won't be our last. Next time we are in Waco, we will make sure to stop in. Pizza was great...crispy-but-sturdy crust, fabulous toppings...all around delicious pizza. Good family place, decent service.

I can't believe that people still think this place is the best pizza in town. It's some weird attachment. I admit the pizza is good but it's not Rock Star pizza. It takes forever to get the pizza. The place is never clean. The booths are falling apart. Service is iffy on a good day. Bad reviews make zero difference... More

We ordered regular pizza a meat lovers and spinach Alfredo what we got was not the best pizza of all of Waco. First it was super greasy, the flavor was awful almost... More

The pizza here is okay, just okay. When places like domino's and cici's rival the quality of your food something is wrong. Still, I digress. The real problem here isn't the pizza. It is that the restaurant itself feels small, cramped, and dark. All the "quirky" things people have commented on in other posts are major downsides for me. The... More

How anyone could write a disparaging review of this restaurant is a mystery to me! We have have been going there for years and have never had a disappointing visit! It is actually a family tradition that we eat here the day after Thanksgiving...... Every year! They have absolutely huge and delicious pizzas and plenty of cold beer! Question: What... More

Hands down some the best pizza in WACO! You can also order extra cheese on top of the awesome pounds of fresh topping and a pizza in the shape of TX. Delicious pizza!!!

I took my son to Poppa Rollo's tonight and WOW! They sat us on the balcony (I guess because I had my son) and it was actually pretty clean. The waitress seemed very new and somewhat uncomfortable around people, but she was ok. We waited 35 minutes for a pizza. The pizza tasted fine, but when I went to get... More

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.
