The pizza was fantastic. Got a large Pepperoni pizza and they pile on the pepperoni. Very tasty and the beer comes in frosted mugs. Wait staff was not very personable, and it took 45 minutes to get our pizza even though it was 4:00 in the afternoon and not very busy. Loved the 3 stooges on the big screens. Would... More

Poppa Rollo's has been around since I was a child. Now I take my babies there when we visit. The pizza is SO Good. Get the "everything" or the hamburger with extra cheese (we're cheese and pepperoni people, but here we always get the hamburger or the "everything"). Make sure to walk around the facility- hidden doors, vintage decor. Sit... More

The pizza is different than a lot of places. Our favorite is "the works" which is a little bit of everything. The toppings are piled on thick and it's very tasty. The only negative is it's a bit salty. I never notice as I am eating it, but then find myself extremely thirsty later in the evening. It's family operated... More

Took my mom and dad and kiddos out to eat here and was amazed. The pizza was awesome and so was the calzone and spaghetti my parents eights. The atmosphere is so fun and cool to look at. And the fact that the Three Stooges were on the TV was great entertainment. We will definitely be back.

Everyone knows Pizza, right? Pizza hut, papa johns, little Caesars, there is sort of a corporate industry standard, right? This is not that kind of pizza. First, my wife claims this is the only pizza in the world that the sauce doesn't bother her stomach with its acidity. Agree, it is a mellow sauce, but also this pizza is less... More

Growing up in Waco allowed me to try different venues to eat pizza. Even after trying other places, I always returned to my favorite. Whill the parlor is a few miles off the interstate, it is well worth the effort. This is one place you truly get a d inner and a show. Especially if you like watching shows of... More

Looking for a great pizza place. A place where you can enjoy great old time movies and cartoons making it family a friendly eatery. A place where your kids can enjoy old fashion and new automated arcade games. How about a place where you can enjoy a cold beer, favorite mixed drink or beverage. If your not going to Poppa... More

There isn't much in Waco, Texas and it's a boring little town between Austin and the DFW metroplex. But this pizza place is amazing. It's a little family owned restaurant that's a blast to the past playing old cartoon shows from the 60's on a big screen in the main dining area. The place is family friendly and the food... More

I grew up in Waco. Poppa Rollo's has been one of my most favorite places to go eat for as long as I can remember. For the young at heart, you can sit in the area that shows the old Little Rascal films. Or you can choose between the bar area with big screen TV's playing sports events and the... More

Sit in the back in the bar! The kids liked that it was loud, so did I. Great clientele and even better pizza. Service was great. Very laid back place that takes me back to my youth. This is a Waco landmark so if you want fine dining go elsewhere. If you want good food and true atmosphere eat here.
