2. Rod’s Pizza Cellar
Rod’s Pizza Cellar comes highly recommended from us Arkansas Natives who love it.
Here is a brief snippet of their history (which is hilarious): Once upon a time, in the land of Hot Springs, there was not a very good pizza to be found, so Papa Rod and Mama Rod opened Rod’s Pizza Cellar on the 4th of July, 1975.
Soon the villagers came to love Rod’s Pizza cellar and they asked why it tasted so good. Papa Rod told them about using only real cheese and slicing it at the Cellar so he could be assured of its quality and freshness. The sauces are cooked in small batches, he explained, because Mama Rod said to and because Papa Rod knew it would make it taste better. -source
Rod’s Pizza Cellar has a FULL menu of all your favorites. From starters like breaded ravioli and fried pickle spears to sandwiches, salads, pasta, AMAZING pizza, and delicious desserts.
At Rod’s, you can get your pizza anyway that’s convenient for you. Whether you want to dine in, drive thru, take out, get it delivered, have it catered, or “take and bake”, they do it all!
