Can you smell, what the Rocky’s is cooking?
That delicious aroma is coming from Rocky’s Pizza Ring, at 3273 Seajay Rd. in Beavercreek. Known to Beavercreek foodies for years, this Gem City original is nestled into the Beaver Valley Shopping Center, is behind Lofino’s Grocery. It is a little tough to find, but once you know about this little known secret, you will be back for more. In fact on their menu, the motto is “Once Found, Never Forgotten.”
Mama said knock you out with the scoop on Rocky’s Pizza Ring, so we’re gonna knock you out….
In this corner, we have The Big Ragu, the undisputed, undefeated Dayton Foodies in his Forties. It’s time for a Food Adventure, so ring the bell, and let’s get it on.
HERE’S THE SKINNY:
— Fun atmosphere, where the dining tables are inside a boxing ring. There are also old articles on the wall about various fighters from the 1940’s-1970’s
— Owner/Manager Amy, comes in at 6am each day and makes all of the dough, fresh from scratch. It makes a big difference, you will see, in the taste.
— Amy also makes her own sausage & meatballs. She even makes her bread from scratch for Rocky’s menu selection of East Coast Style Subs.
— Family owned and operated since 1975, current ownership is 2nd generation. They still use the original pizza ovens for that great flavor!
— The hours are a bit tricky: Monday through Thursday, they are open 11am-2pm, then they close and reopen 5-10pm. Friday they stay open til 11pm, while Saturdays and Sundays hours are 11am-11pm, and 11am-10pm respectively.
Now lace up your gloves, you are about to go toe to toe with Rocky’s “Must Eats !” Wait, unlace the gloves, it makes it easier to eat…..
— THE EB PIZZA (Everything but anchovies): Want “deluxe” toppings? Then you want the EB PIZZA . Yo Mick, the main event is their pizza. Rocky’s pies are a thinner crust and cut into small squares. As we said, the fresh dough is key here. **TIP: Some of you who like a crispier crust may request them to cook it “well done.”
— THE PEPPERONI PIZZA: A good, ol’ classic. With Rocky’s dough, cheese and sauce combination, you cant go wrong. Take your mouthpiece out before eating.
— EAST COAST ITALIAN SUB: Their most popular sub, served with onions and Italian oil, provolone, with an option for lettuce and tomato too !
— THREE INGREDIENT CALZONE: Pick your own 3 fillings, and enjoy the fresh dough that holds it all together. This calzone is definitely fork and knife worthy.
— EAST COAST TURKEY SUB: Nothing fancy, just one of the best quick turkey sandwiches out there. The fresh bread makes you wanna hold the sandwich like a teddy bear.
— TACO PIZZA: Grilled hamburger meat, crumbled, mixed with Mexican spices, and topped with 2 kinds of cheese. It is then baked and finished with a topping of lettuce and tomatoes. Spicy, tasty and filling. This is a unique tasting pie, and one of the top taco pizzas we have encountered. A Food Adventure favorite.
The menu also includes spaghetti dinners, burgers, salads and hoagies. Rocky’s Pizza Ring is the place to go, to put your taste buds in training.
Here is also something that you need to know. Rocky’s has a FREE Stand up Comedy Night on the second MONDAY of each month. Also every Monday is 1/2 price beer pitchers.
What are the future plans for Rocky’s? They are looking to get craft beer on tap, and partner with brushes and barstools for future events.
We have known about this place since the days of bellbottoms, and continue to get our fix every few weeks. It astounds us that so many people are still not aware this place exists. Don’t be one of the those people!
Whether you are sitting in the dining room ring, or grabbing some pizza to go, we hope you try this champ a try. The ownership works heard to deliver freshness every day. Rocky’s Pizza Ring in Beavercreek, will put your hunger down for the count!
