After a day out we stopped here for a quick bite to eat. We arrived just before 6 and there were inky a few tables. Orders are placed at the counter. We ordered a medium pizza with 4 toppings and a couple beers. Pizza was some of the best I have had, berry fresh ingredients and very good value. If... More

We are out of town regulars to this eatery, but the owner and staff remember us, year after year.The Pizza and Italian are true to the title.Egg Plant, spaghetti and Pizza's---usually we take out and portions last into the next day.Very good value.

Rocky's Pizza is another favorite of ours when we are in "The Desert". Don't expect fancy decor and candle lit tables. Rocky's is a plain booth style pizza place, with some bigger round tables, for diners who may have larger groups. You have to ask for the pizza(s) of your choice at the counter. If you sit down and wait... More

The reviews were mixed but thought to give it a try. The sauce on the pizza was delicious but the crust was soggy. It needed about 3 more minutes in the oven. Kind of chaotic service. Carry out was doing a brisk business. It would not be my choice for pizza again

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
