The Rock Comes To South Hill!

By
Real Estate Agent with John L. Scott - Puyallup
OK, anyone that knows me, knows I'm a fan of food . . . and especially a fan of good pizza! Way back in 1996 a little restaurant opened in downtown Tacoma called "The Rock Wood Fired Pizza and Pasta". I was attending Tacoma Community College at the time and our class ended up there after our final. I was hooked! By far the BEST pizza in Tacoma was and still is in my opinion at The Rock.

I rarely went simply because The Rock was so far away from my house, it was simply easier to just order pizza. Then a couple years ago, The Rock opened in Lakeland. So now a few times a year, I get to enjoy The Rock for lunch as it's only about 10 minutes from my office.

Well, the pizza gods have shined on John this year . . . The Rock just opened on South Hill Puyallup! Now it's conveniently located right between my office and home! (OK, so this is NOT going to help John lose weight, but he's thrilled none the less!) If you've never eaten at The Rock, you're in for a real treat! The Rock is a "theme" restaurant in that they have a Rock and Roll theme. I put the word theme in quotes because I don't want you thinking you're going to get served pizza by Elvis or Tom Petty. No, rather The Rock plays good ol' classic Rock & Roll in the restaurant. Their menu covers are old album covers like Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon, The Beatles White Album, etc. Some of their pizza's are named after classic rock songs like "Sweet Emotions" (Aerosmith) and "Bad to the Bone" (George Thorogood) which are two of my favorite pies.

Also, being wood fired pizza, they have a flame theme as well. So don't be surprised to see a Hummer H2 with the coolest fire looking flames on it parked out front. The atmosphere is great, but don't expect to have a quiet dinner for two here. The music is loud and the staff is upbeat. Plan to wait on Friday and Saturday night . . . for a LONG time for a table. They don't do reservations, first come first served. The food is fantastic! Their Calzones are to die for and their pasta is great too. If you want to try a sampling of their pizzas, head over for lunch where they have an all you can eat buffet of pizza, pasta and salad. You won't be disappointed and you'll make this one of your favorite spots for lunch or dinner!

Welcome to South Hill Jay and Don!
