Mama Roxy, Rochelle Park, anyone bveen?

  • 1

Went to Mama Roxies Friday Night in Rochelle Park. We were very excited since we are fans of Varka in Ramsey and Roxannes in Mahwah, their other restaurants. first off we sat upstairs which was so hot, there were no fans or air circulating. Then came the food, the appetizers were not very good, the pizza, which Roxannes does excellently, was horrible. Flat tasting, like casrdboard. Desserts were not memorable, even the waiter said the choices were limited. Will not return. Get the Pizza maker from Roxannes down to teach the pizza makers a thing or two. i actually went yo see if there were brick ovens or wood burning ovens upon leaving. There were. Now I was at a totoal loss for the Dominos like pizza.

  1. I dined here for lunch with 2 others on Saturday. The place looks very nice. They did a beautiful job. We ate outside on the front patio since it was so nice out.
    The started with the Fried Eggplant and Zucchini and it was very very good, then we got 2 small pies (plain and white). The plain was good, the white was just ok.

    The food wasn't as big of a let down to us as it was to doxy216 but what really disappointed us were the prices. It is pretty expensive for a pizzaria. The small pies are $13 (plain). Sandwiches off their lunch menu start around $11 each and if you sub salad for the fries it jumps to $13 and up.
    That is pricey for a sandwich from a Pizza joint. It isn't crazy expensive but just more than we expected.
