Roca Bar is an old school family style pizza joint serving thin crust pizza - good service, average food.

Great thin crust una style pizza. Some of the best in Evansville. However, the Italian Salad is why I go and why I will return. Neighborhood is not the best but it's worth it!

I can only promote the Chef salad and the pizza here because they are both my favorites. I am sure other items on the menu are also great but I find myself craving the other two. Have been dining at the Kentucky Avenue location for 20 plus years and always return. The staff has always been friendly and take care... More

I took a friend from out of town because I wanted to take him to a local place and he preferred salads. He loved it. I go for the pizza. It has been around since before I was born and still a great place to go.

One of my favorite pizza places in Evansville. It's good thin crust pizza and the Italian salad is awesome. The restaurant is old (first pizza in Evansville) so the building is dated, but has adequate seating. This is a dinner option; they don't open until around 4PM.

This has been one of our favorite pizza restaurants since the 70's and we always get the same thing. Around the world pizza and salad. The thin, crispy crust loaded with toppings is fantastic. Be sure you get the salad which is also delicious.

This is also an Evansville locally owned classic. Everything from the thin crust pizza to the sandwiches are very good. However this location is not in a very good section of town. Still safe but not perfect. Worth the drive down to

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.

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... More
