Rockhouse Pizza: Strombolis, Breadsticks, and Taco Pizza
I’ve written raving reviews of Rockhouse Pizza in Robards, Ky on Genuine Kentucky before and… as God as my witness (*Scarlett O’Hara Moment), I will write many more. I love the ambiance of Rockhouse Pizza, the ridiculously friendly people, the UK decorations, the adorable antique toy decorations and whimsical table tops, and the food. Boy, do I love the food!
It’s crazy, because the name of the restaurant is Rockhouse Pizza, but everyone in my family agrees – the strombolis are as good as, and sometimes even better than, the pizza. Now here’s the thing, I’m a pizza fiend – I am obsessed with pizza and have been since I cut my first teeth. By the same token, before Rockhouse, I never cared for strombolis. I don’t think I ever actually disliked them, it’s just that where there are strombolis, there is pizza and… well… like I said, I’m obsessed. So, I always just felt indifferent to strombolis.
However, Rockhouse Pizza has caused me to see the error of my ways. Strombolis are great! Make that Rockhouse Pizza’s Strombolis are great.
I put their Taco Pizza right on par with their strombolis. It’s the best taco pizza you’ll find anywhere. The sour cream adds a lot to it. When we bring leftovers home with us, I also add picante sauce or mild sauce to the pizza… Heavenly.
Even Rockhouse’s breadsticks and salads are exceptional! I always tell people that Rockhouse Pizza has…
- The best strombolis in Kentucky (or anywhere, for that matter – I’ve never had better)
- The best taco pizza in Kentucky (ditto)
- The breadsticks are a strong contender for the best breadsticks in Kentucky!
A lot of times, if we’re in the area of Robards (whether we’ve been in Madisonville or Henderson), we’ll stop by and grab a few stroms to bring home with us. If I have my way, we’ll also grab a taco pizza while we’re at it. Then our lunch and supper ate deliciously taken care of – no dishes for me to clean up… just deliciousness to enjoy.
On a recent trip, we picked up three stombolis and added the “special” (a small pizza, drink, and salad) to our order. Great call. They were delicious.
The French Salad dressing was the bomb – in fact, the entire salad was great. There are few things I hate more than a disappointing salad, so I was over the moon happy with this tasty beauty.
When you order strombolis, you can ask for a side of marinara sauce. The stoms don’t need it, mind you, but some people enjoy a little sauce to dip a few bites into. The sauce is a little extra (very, very little) but it’s so good, you’ll want to order at least one. Maybe two. Possibly 241.
Seriously, their sauce is amazing.
Rockhouse Pizza is a VERY family-friendly, fun, and delicious restaurant. They’re located at 14274 on historic Highway 41 South (between Sebree and Henderson). Go soon and go often. You will never leave hungry or disappointed. You will only leave with plans to come back.
