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.

Obviously an old favorite in Waco. The people I was with ate there while attending Baylor decades ago. Pizza was just OK. Service was good. Kind of dark and crowded. Fun room to one end with some older pre-video and video games. One of those places you either love or eat there just to say you did.

The food is good at both locations, but the service is better at the Hewitt location. I have been there during lunch, dinner on weekends and weeknights, avoid on the weekends, just never enough help.

ordered a large sausage pizza to go, felt a little heavy, got it home and couldn't finish but 2-3 slices in one sitting. covered in vast amount of crumbled sausage, thick cheese layer, tasty crust. certainly deserves 'best pizza in waco' title.

Thank michael p
