New Pizza Place Coming to NW Calgary/Royal Oak

Stopped by Taste of Saigon in the Royal Oak Shopping Center on Thursday night for some takeout and noticed a sign a couple of doors down for a new place being built. I believe it was called Rock Wood Fired Pizza and Spirits. Windows were not covered up, so I took a peek, lots of brick in the dining room and I noticed 2 garage doors on the side leading to what looks like a patio.

Found a website, logo looks the same so I am assuming it is the same franchise. Looks like they are out of the US with locations in Colorado, Washington, and Oregon, plus one location in Red Deer. Anyone tried these guys before? Always nice to see more options coming in to the NW.

      Thanks beggsy, I missed that. From what I saw, it looks like there is still quite a bit of work to be done in there before opening day.

    2. Ooohhh! Sounds great! I am craving good pizza for years! Please let that be good! Great location for where we live too.

      1. Looks promising- lots of vegetarian options AND sugary cocktails served in buckets!

        1. Awesome, another franchise. (sarcasm)
          However, I have eaten my words.. Both Mucho Burrito and 5 Guys completely exceed the "Franchise" label, so let's hope this place does as well!

              Actually, I drove by yesterday. Still a construction site. They built a patio though. Doesn't look like they are going to open for a while unfortunately.

                i can't believe how long they are taking. Smashburger the Wild Wing went in quick...
