a Unique experience

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

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.

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
