Terrible Pizza made here. I'm still trying to get rid of the nasty aftertaste.

I gave this place a try from a Groupon Now deal. Sorry I did. Upon arriving they wouldn't accept the Groupon to buy the $10 pepperoni pizza, because it's a special. So, I was forced to pay the $10. But it was the lousiest pizza i've ever had. Small, skimpy and more like a cracker with a little nasty tomato paste and cheese and the cheapest pepperoni they could cobble up and then overcooked and burnt to boot. They were very forceful in making the sale as well. Felt more like a used car lot than anything. Is there anywhere these slimy people wont show up in life? There's a lot of obviously fake reviews for this joint saying the pizza is great, the owner has no shame.

By the way, I offered it to my roommate to try and he said a frozen pizza would have been better.

Anyhow, go anywhere else. You will regret eating here for sure.

The sauce tastes canned and has a weird aftertaste. The cheese is flavorless, of poor quality and the appearance of the pie is poor. The dough is flattened by a machine and it tastes like it. The crust has no flavor, no chewy goodness

Always a great deal. $10 for a large pepperoni "pick up only". They're practically giving them away. If you want a cheap $10 pizza with bad quality ingredients go to pizza hut. If you want one made locally owned with quality ingredients by very cool people go to Rocket bobs. All the employees are super nice and the pizza is outstanding.

I love supporting local businesses and am always up for pizza so i was excited to try Rocket Pizza after a flyer was placed on our front porch this morning.
The crust was good. The pepperoni was yummy, but I didn't care for the ground beef and there was something weird about the cheese, I don't know if it had been left out for a long time or what, but it wasn't good. It was disappointing and with the delivery charge it added up to be 31 (plus tip, delivery guy was super nice so I let him keep the $4) for a large pizza and caesar salad (which was actually SORT of good). Now I know that's not the MOST expensive, but it's a decent amount and I expected to enjoy myself.
The bottom line here is that cheese, for me, on a pizza is the third important ingredient (after sauce and crust) and it ruined it for me. Sad and yuck. :(

Pros: Very friendly guy on the phone

Cons: Delivery charge, funky cheese, surcharge for credit card

This rivals my favorite pizza. The old Old Town Pizza has always been my fav. This pizza has a cracker crust so if you're into deep dish, this may not be for you. The sauce is perfect, not sweet and not bitter either. The toppings are really good. Huge slices of crispy pepperoni. Not too spicy. This place is tiny. Just one 4 seat table so it's not exactly eat-in. The people are fantastic and Bob still makes his own dough, secret recipe style. Phone in and pick up is the way to go. So tasty. Definitely a new fav.

My favorite pizza to call for delivery. Not great on atmosphere, but the pizza is great, thin crust and loaded with toppings, no skimping in the quality of this product!

A great place to get a pizza, not a chain! I'm not sure where the "rocket" part comes in, I mean, they're fast but not that fast. Pan crust is excellent.

I consider myself to be quite the pizza aficionado, as not only do I eat it often, but also from many different places, because I always like to try new things. Bob's, or as it's now known as Rocket, pizza is the hands down best I've ever had. I grew up not more than ten blocks away from Bob's, went to school at Meek Elementary, only a couple of blocks away, and I don't think I had Bob's more than a handful of times until I was in my early twenties (my family was always the Pizza Hut type). I've had all kinds of pizza from the foo-foo gourmet crapola of Pizzacato to the ever-generic Pizza Hut and Dominos. My top three pizza places are all Ma-&-Pa type of shops, like Bob's. Not only does this place offer you almost any kind of pizza or topping you can imagine under the sun, but they do it with the most friendly and inviting attitudes you could ask for. I was never even close to a fan of thin crust until I had Bob's, now that's a testimonial. Their sizes are tailored to fit any desire or level of hunger, their ingredients are always of the utmost freshness, and the only way you're going to have a bad pizza, is if you screw up and order a horrible combination of toppings - period!

I was having the worst day today. It was drizzly, I had worked hard, for nothing, and was just super depressed about the whole day. I was looking through information that my aunt left at her place, and there was a flyer for Rocket Pizza. Well, the prices were more than fair, and I had a hard time choosing between all the choices!

Wait, 2 liter of Pepsi for a dollar, WOW.... No delivery fee.. WOW (both were for orders over $15 dollars)... I had to give this place a try. I called the number, got a friendly voice, and ordered the pizza the way I wanted, no hassle there, and they gave me an estimate of 25-30 minutes, and even repeated my order to me to make sure it was correct, kudos for that, since there is nothing worse than a misordered pizza.

So I sat down to watch the beginning of a movie, and before I knew it (or even really expected it) comes the knock. The delivery guy was friendly AND early, BONUS! Oh and they gave me a magnet so I wouldn't lose their number... Honestly, I'd drive to get this pizza (I live in Vancouver).

The Pizza is Amazing! A thin crust, with great cheese, and fresh tasty veggies! The Medium was larger than I would have expected from a local joint, and such a great price! To top off this great pizza, I got some cinnamon sticks, which aren't greasy, and light and tasty! To make things even better the icing they come with is really tasty, maybe even a touch cream cheesy.

I am thrilled with all of the aspects of this restaurant, and I think that I could have easily ordered the small (since I've got SOOO much left... I can't wait to have it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner tomorrow!) I did drop my 2 Liter but I can tell you it was cold when the guy handed it to me.

Rocket Pizza has my vote for best pizza in NE Portland! I want to go visit the restaurant and see about eating in some time, though with that free delivery, I hardly need to!

uhhh, this definately isn't the worst pizza ever. I have had better, but this stuff is pretty tasty. They are very quick to deliver, and they make a really good garlic chicken with white sauce pie. For sure better than pizza hut.

Well, I have to say that I decided to check this pizza out after reading the review that said its like the worst ever....i think that guy mighta been high on pcp or somethin...or maybe just a local competitor, like a delivery kid from the neighborhood Dominoe's The pizza is really good...a little more expensive than average , but really good toppings (i had pepperoni/ sausage & onion/artichokes/olives), crust, sauce, cheese...everthing seemed pretty good to me....i also don't know how the crust could have been undercooked...its really thin...if it was undrercooked it would probaly just flop over...who knows, maybe that guy got them at a bad time or he has strange tastebuds...everyone i shared some with absolutely loved it... i will take this place over the local pizzacato or hot lips pizza anyday

Pros: sauce & toppings, quick delivery

Cons: maybe crust could be slightly thicker (to make it more filling)

I had Bob's deliver after reading the amazing reviews, and I've got to say, disapointment is too light a word. Now, I don't claim to be an expert or nothing, but I swear this is by far the worst pizza I've ever had! Even though they gave me a free two liters of pop I still felt like I'd been ripped off. Granted, it's true, it was piled high with toppings, but I'm sorry, if I can't taste the difference between an artichoke heart and a mushroom, something must be wrong. The crust was grossly undercooked as was the mountain of toppings, the cheese was almost non-existent, the sauce tasted like government surplus, and yet they recieved reviews like "maybe the best pizza on the west coast"? I can name hundreds of pizza places that are better, they're all named Dominos! Not that I suggest you buy thier pizza either, but hey, thier cardboard is better than what "Bob's Rocket Pizza" tries to pass off. The worst part? The fact that even still I have to give them at least one star!

I never, NEVER, ordered pizza delivered because I don't like the regular pizza chains. They're horrible. But after reading reviews here, I decided to give Bob's a try. I couldn't wait to write this one. The nicest phone service, and the person I talked to said it'd be 30 to 40 minutes. It was here in 20. Delicious. Loaded with veggies. I had the vegetarian. My daughter who will not pizza in restaurants (she's strange) loved it, and had 3 slices. THANKS everyone for sharing such a gem. It's in my speed dial now.

Good ol Bob's has been around for years, but with new ownership things have changed. One thing is the toppings, much better now I must say. But with that the price has also increased. Close to $20 for a large pie. I can't complain about anything but the coupon. Coupon is $2 off, but most of the combo pizza's are 19.50. One of the best pizza's on the east side.

This is by far the best pizza in the Portland area. A freind of mind turned me on to this place because we were hungry before class. I haven't manged to find better pizza since. The outside doesn't look like much but from the ovens within comes a truely delectible taste. The sauce is awsome, the topings rock, the people are friendly and they have Jolt Cola in the cooler. What more could you ask for.

This may be the best pizza in Portland and amongst the best on the entire west coast! That may sound like a bold statement about a pizza place that has such a tremendously small location....but you have to try it!!! The sauce is perfect, the cheese and toppings are the finest quality. The crust is a thinner type crust, which normally I'm not much of a fan of, but this transcends my previous preferences! The owner is very friendly, and even told me about Bob the pizza cook. The great story about Bob is that he has been with this pizza joint since in opened in 1971!!!!!!!! How much more experience and neighborhood appeal can you find?!?!?!!? It truly is superb pizza worth the price.... If you are in the mood for Bellagios, Round Table, or any other higher-end pizza place, you should really check this place out, I doubt you will disappointed!! (I think they also have free delivery in NE Portland now also?They still do have only the one inside table, so f you want to save it u should probably call ahead.)

The owner, Tim Chester, is an awesome guy who makes an awesome product. He is always there with a smile and a few minutes to talk while he makes your pizza or salad. With a wide variety of toppings including feta, linguisa, shrimp, artichoke hearts and sun dried tomatoes(as well as all the old stand-bys) you have an endless variety of choices. Tim also stocks some pretty hot sauces to top your pizza with if you're feeling lucky. There's only one table but you can reserve it, so it's never crowded. Mostly take-out this hand made crust, old style oven baked pizza is always fresh, fast and addictive!!!!
