“Great Pizza and Friendly Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

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.

“Great pizza, Kentucky Ave preferred”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2014

Roca Bar is a tradition for Evansvillians. The one on Kentucky Avenue is the old-time tavern-like atmosphere. The one off the highway is really good too, however it's much newer, bigger, and much more acustomed to larger groups and families, so it's much more of a preference thing. The 41 location also has outdoor seating which is nice, but tends to cause a lot of flies to hang around in the restaurant, which is a major turn off. I know all restaurants have flies, but they were EVERYWHERE, and most places we go don't seem to have the same problem.

“I don't get it. Sorry ”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2014

Other reviews rave about this place and it was disappointment to me.
Wasn't really feeling the menu or the Resturant.
The service was friendly the food tasted good not wow good.
Smaller portions and a bit pricey.
It was just not a "I have to go back" kind of place.
I have a feeling (not knowing history but realizing after reading reviews)
This was probably a long time local favorite in a older location someplace else. Second generation built this place with new look and ruined it.
It's more of a Resturant with bunch of kids and family then a sports bar.

“An Evansville tradition with me for over 50 years”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013 via mobile

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.
