DO NOT EAT HERE! Rocky's was by far the most disgusting pizza I've ever eaten in my life. My boyfriend and I usually order from Reginelli's or Slice, but decided to try something new last night. Big mistake. We got a large cheese pizza to go, which cost almost $13. When we opened the box, we couldn't believe our eyes. It looked like pizza from our school lunch cafeteria! And tasted even worse. If you like bland, flavorless mozarella on top of thin cardboard crust, then Rocky's is the place for you. Oh, and be prepared to be sick to your stomach the rest of the night afterward. I can't believe they're still in business. Reginelli's is right next to them on Magazine and a 100 times better. Even frozen pizza or Domino's is better than Rocky's.
Place just hasn't been the same since the storm. That isn't giving them an excuse, they've had plenty of time to recover, they just don't seem to care (and their employees' attitudes reflect that). They still have the best BBQ Chicken Pizza in the city, but it isn't worth the now outrageous price and horrible service.
My husband and I used to eat rocky's all the time, until we found a live roach in our food. The owner did not compensate us (which wouldn't have helped) but gave us a to go box?! She said they haven't been able to get rid of them since the storm and are finding them everywhere. Apparently, they've been spraying everyweek but can't get rid of them. Basically, she told us that the problem couldn't be corrected, so if you want extra toppings - that crawl - then Rocky's is the place for you.
