Roca Bar Pizza

Roca Bar Pizza is known for being "Evansville's First Pizza" which they served up starting in 1953.  Ever since then, you could grab an una-style pizza at Roca Bar's location on S. Kentucky Avenue. However, according to their sign, Roca Bar has called this particular location home since 1943. Back in April, Roca Bar took to Facebook to announce that they would be closing their original location, but are opening a brand new location off Washington Avenue near Green River Road.

New Location Same Pizza

While this is the end of an era for the original Roca Bar building, they will still be serving up the delicious Roca Bar signature una-style pizza that we've enjoyed for many decades.  Many comments on Facebook asked if they would be bringing their pizza ovens to the new location, and Roca Bar commented saying that the pizza ovens they've always used will be coming to the new location, so you don't have to worry it will still be the exact same Roca Bar pizza.
