Delicious pizza

I was a little concerned going in because a disgruntled dad with several young kids was leaving angrily saying he had waited 15 minutes and no one had come to take his order. Once inside I overhead a server apologizing to a group of customers for getting their order wrong. Unlike the others I was... read more

...if you're looking for Chicago style pizza, this isn't it. I don't know what style this is, but we didn't care for the pizza at all. We ordered a 10 inch Patty's Pepperoni. We asked if it was a Chicago style pizza and our server told us it was. As soon as it arrived, we could tell that she obviously... More

Believe Mama Rod when she tells you that you only need one slice of the Godfather pizza. We ordered a 15" for 4 ladies, and we left half of it in the box. A 13" would have been plenty! It was like eating a hamburger without the bun! Delicious, and they deliver!

The pizza at Rod's is wonderful. At every new town I go to, I try the local pizza places. Rod's is, by far, the best! I've seen a couple bad reviews for and I can see where the staff may occasionally be a little unprofessional, but have you ever been to a restaurant that didn't? The vast majority of outings...

The atmosphere was great with a little train going all around the dining room. It was cool to watch! The pizza buffet was ok, with lots of variety. The only is, that most of the pizza was cold and not fresh. They did make fresh of any we requested, which was nice, but I had never been there before so... More

My theory of the test of truly good pizza is how it is reheated (which may sound trivial...) but the pizza we took home from Rod's was seriously awesome fresh AND reheated. We had a great time at the restaurant too.

My husband and I ate at Rod's on our first day in Hot Springs. We were there at an odd ball time so we pretty much had the place to ourselves to watch the LSU game. Our waitress was very friendly and helpful with suggestions from the menu. I think we had The Godfather and it was delicious! I wish... More

I am not a pizza fan but my shopping buddy is....... so we stopped at Rods pizza for their lunch buffet. The experience was great. They kept the buffet filled with pizza, the servers came by our table often to pick up plates and ask if we needed anything. The pizza was SO good. We will be back!!

We were in Hot Springs before going to the Christmas light display at Garvan Gardens. We were looking for pizza and read good reviews about Rods. We ordered the dried pickles, they are in spears. They were pretty good. We also ordered a plain cheese, it was good. We ordered the Godfather pizza and it was loaded with toppings! It... More
