NE Portland Pizza - Bob’s Rocket Pizza is located three doors North of Popina the Portland Swimwear boutique. Bob’s has a long history on NE 42nd Avenue. Initially the shop was owned by Bob who in turn sold the business to Tim and finally sold the business to the current owner Joe (the store manager) and his brother. Interestingly both Tim and Bob still work at Rocket Pizza although Bob less than Tim. Rocket Pizza offers NE Portland Pizza Delivery and you may even get a delivery in their new electric car - very cool.
Since Joe has taken over the shop has has made several great changes including improved seating, lighting, updated equipment and a new cooling system , all make for a more enjoyable stay as you are picking up your pizza.
At this time Joe does not have more than a few seats to accommodate pick up customers, but Joe and his brother have big plans to expand their humble pizza joint into a larger space that will accommodate seating. In fact a new structure has already been built, complete with a glass garage door which will allow for indoor/outdoor seating when the weather allows.
We have been very impressed with the heart and soul Joe has put into giving Rocket Pizza heart and soul and look forward to their continued expansion and success.
But how about the pizza…….well it is very tasty, my favorite is any of their meat pizzas, they do not skimp on toppings also their taco pizza is very good as well as their veggie. Really though the best value and deal is their lunch special where you can get an individual sized pizza for $3.50, very tasty and the price is right on the money.
