Poppa Rollo's Pizza is a long time Waco hole in the wall. The original Valley Mills place needs a major overhaul, but the pizza is good. I wish they could get the crust a bit thinner, but it's Cracker type is what I like. The new Hewitt location is very nice.

I read about this place on line and decided to go with my daughter. We drove around the front parking lot several times waiting for someone to leave so we could park. I finally called the restaurant, and they told us about the parking in the back. As we were walking down the alley to the back door, my daughter... More

Having been eating their pizza and drinking their beer since 1977. And it is still great. One of a kind pizzeria from the old movies and the "back of the phone booth" door into the bar, it is a venue with atmosphere and great food. While it has expanded into the "video game world" like so many others it retains... More

Shared a large specialty pizza for 5 adults and had plenty to go around. The crust was nice and crispy with loads of toppings. Fighting over the last piece! Will definitely come back again! A must stop when in Waco.

Poppa Rollo's has been a Waco pizza institution for 3+ decades. Nice old school pizza place with great pizza. We ordered "The Works" and salads. The salads were fresh, pizza was well cooked and had a large amount of toppings compared to most pizza places. The staff was polite and kept our glasses filled. There is a "secret door" that...

Let's start with the food. Is this pizza going to change your life? No. Will you fondly remember it months afterward? No. Is it tasty and reasonably priced? Absolutely. Will it bring back nostalgic memories is you are a child of the 70s or 80s? Oh yeah! If you grew up eating at Godfather's Pizza or Minsky's, you will recognize... More

The Hewitt location has better service than the Waco location on valley mills but pizza is great at either. Beer is very cold. Wings only available at the Hewitt Texas location

When possible, I like to explore local fare when traveling. We drove by Poppa Rollo's while visit Waco last week and were intrigued by the signs out front promising "Old Movies, Arcade, and Sports in HD." Just seeing the front with the old fire engine and VW love bug seat reminded me of places we grew up with in Dallas... More

We had garlic bread, nachos, sausage pizza and a gluten free Hawaiian for my youngest. Gluten free was best I've tried of that kind- my little one gobbled it up. Staff was very friendly and the arcade was cool. Family friendly place and I felt like the pricing was very fair
