Why dose it say online that they are open when they are not. They should have message saying when they will be back open!

Their pizza is so-so. A little too doughy for my taste but I guess that's New York style. They don't have much in the way of signature pizzas wither although you can build your own. It's the only pizza restaurant in DHS other than Pizza Hut, Dominos or Little Caesars, but I like Pizza Hut better. Otherwise I'm going a... More

Rocky's Pizza in Desert Hot Springs is just like a NYC pizza joint. I know... I'm from Brooklyn. The food is top-notch especially the pizza. Its got that thin but not too crispy crust with a soft "handle". Meatballs, pasta, sauces are delicious. Really, everything I've had is very very good. The atmosphere is friendly, they seem like a family... More

The pizzas we tried were oddly too wet, and there was no choice of BBQ chicken or bacon as toppings. I think that next time, I'll drive into Palm Springs and pick up a pizza from Bill's.

This is definitely a good neighborhood casual pizza joint with prompt service. We prefer thin crust which is made to order and tend to order Rocky's Special Pizza with 3 toppings--a good buy. Recently we have noticed inconsistencies in the final products. Overall, we rate the pizza as very good.

Not bad, but we had a large & I have to say it was soggy, and very very little sauce. I'm not sure what we ordered that made it soggy (artichokes or tomatoes maybe). Flavors were good, but sauce & toppings were skimpy.

We were in the mood for pizza, but got sidetracked and ordered "Italian Specialties" The lasagna and chicken parmigiana were below average--the tomato sauce tasted institutional, the noodles were flat tasting, etc. Next time, we will stick with pizza whcih looked good on the other tables.

Excellent food,the inside could use a upgrade.One time we asked for delivery service when the guy got to our community the gate wasn't open for him to pull in and he mentioned he wasn't getting out to walk threw he said that we wouldn't be getting our order he never showed. I call Rocky's they blame it on being busy.... More
