Uptown's most popular pizza joint! a must have! – I've been a customer of this place for the past 4 years and they never seem to disappoint! the pizza is amazing! go for the rocco's supreme, i promise, you won't be disappointed. I even invited some VP's from work for dinner here and they absolutely loved the place. what are you waiting for? go to this place!
Pros: Great food, Great service, Excellent location in the heart of uptown!, open till 4AM on the weekend :)
Cons: Extremely busy at times... but you can't blame them, they have the best pizza in town, who wouldn't want to go there.
Other Notes: I've seen a lot of jerks walk in to this place expecting to jump the line and get instant service... they're just going to have to get over their ego and take a number like everyone else.
Pepperoni Rolls and Pasta Dishes are amazing – Pizza and Pasta/ Greek Salads great as well
God awfull food and people – To all of uptown please read before making a serious mistake . Roccos is in very poor standing with the city of Dallas health department due to rodent and bug infestation. The owners are so cheap and extreamly rude that I am in everyday shock they are still around.We ordered 2 pastas that were served with a brown lettuce salad and hard rolls. We waited 45 minutes for our food and some middle eastern kid said the cook was drunk . When we got our food it was not what we ordered and our silverware was dirty. When we left there sounded like people were fighting in the back and arguing . I was shocked at how many points the place had after reviewing them on the net. If your a complete fool order from this dump.
stay away – We were the only people in the place and the waiter did not even get our order right.He did not even ask if we wanted any refills on our drinks. We did not even get bread until we were ready to leave and it was under cooked.I gave it one star because there is no lower rating.
DON'T DO IT – Very, very rude staff. The pizza and food itself is mediocre but fine for the price. Not kidding - one time a friend got the bottom of the bag crumbs of doritos as a "side". Anyhow, the manager is a huge disaster and she is never friendly or accomodating. I agree with the other bad reviews on this site. I recommend finding another pizza place in this same zip code.
3 HOUR DELIVERY AND ACTUALLY I'M STILL WAITING. - BOY COTT! STIKE! DON'T ORDER! YOU'VE BEEN WARNED! – OK. I LOOK UP ON THIS WEBSITE FOR A DELIVERY PLACE IN DALLAS, I'M REALLY FROM HOUSTON, ANYWAYS I CALLED TO SEE HOW MUCH A PIZZA WAS AND WAS RUDELY TOLD TO LOOK AT THE WEBSITE. SO I DID AND THE FOOD LOOKED DECENT. SO I ORDERED. AT NOON.
OK REAL TIME - IT'S NOW 2:50PM THE PIZZA GUY COMES IN AND WANTS MY MONEY, I EXPLAIN I ORDERED IT 3 HOURS AGO AND DON'T PLAN ON PAYING FOR THIS.
HE CALLED BACK TO HIS BOSS, I GUESS, HE TOLD HER WHAT I SAID...HE LOOKED AT ME ASKED ME AGAIN "SO YOU DON'T WANT TO PAY FOR THIS" I AGAIN SAID NO. WHAT DOES HE DO....
WE WALKS OUT WITH PIZZA IN HAND. WHAT A LOAD! WHAT A LOUSY WAY TO DO BUSINESS.
I DIDN'T EVEN GET A GOODBYE -
HERE'S MY GOOD BYE! I'M NEVER ORDERING FROM ROCCO'S AGAIN!
BOYCOTT! STRIKE! NO ONE ORDER FROM HERE!
Surprise - loved it! – I'm honestly surprised at the bad reviews I've read. Don't know if we just got lucky or what, but a work crowd went for lunch yesterday and we really loved it. 3 of us had the pizza and we all thought it was outstanding (and I am a stickler for good pizza, won't touch Pizza Hut, Inn, or any of the chain delivery places). 2 had pasta dishes they said were very good, and 1 had the eggplant parmesan - he admitted he'd had better, but he still liked it. The garlic rolls are to die for (but brother, you'd better LOVE garlic), and everyone especially loved the house salad with the delicious house viniagrette. YUMMY!
We went to the Uptown location, which is a fun part of town for people watching.
Our one complaint has been said in other reviews - the service, while very friendly, left a lot to be desired. It was at least 15 minutes before we got our ordered drinks, another 10 or 15 before orders were taken, and it took forever to get our checks. What should have been an hour lunch took nearly 90 minutes.
As I said, maybe we just got lucky (and if that's the case, I'll come here and say so), but we loved the food and location (tiny but charming), and will definitely go back.
Horrible Experience – I got their flyer on my door one day and decided to give them a try. I placed the order online (as advertised on the flyer) and recieved a confirmation in my in box immediately and it was dated 11:25am. I waited until 1:10pm before calling to check on my delivery. Tony, "the manager", assured me that I was next on the delivery schedule. 30 minutes later...1:40pm...I callled again to check on my order. Tony once again said I should have been next bu that he would call me back with an update. Once he called back, he says that they never even received my order and could I repeat it for them. At this point I was really aggrivated and asked for my food to be comped after having watied for hours and also having been lied to about "being the next delivery". He stated he had to "call Rocco in California" to ok this. Rocco obviously sided with Tony and I will never ever be ordering from them again. This was my first time to give them a try...and it was also the last.
Cold and not very flavorful. – I should have known by the menu style online that this place was going to be disappointing. I ordered from here twice and both times the pizza was COLD. Not only was it cold but the four cheese pizza I ordered with tomatoes was so flavorless, it reminded me of soggy cardboard.
I could make a better pizza than this – I tried to do something different and eat locally, rather than order out from a big pizza chain. Bad idea. It's hard for me to find a bad pizza, but I found it -- at Rocco's. It was...gritty. The fried calimari was soggy and the buffalo wings were like frozen chicken nuggets doused in wing sauce -- seriously. Their greek salad isn't bad, and the staff is nice enough, but I won't be going back here. It's not worth it. Just order from Papa John's.
I just don't understand -- how can you make bad pizza??
