I come to Des Moines for Military trips every few months. In the hotel I stay in, they have a list of local restaurants that deliver to the hotel. A few months ago, I called Rock Power. It isn't hyperbole, to say this is some of the best pizza I've ever had. And on top of that, the service and... More

The pizza served is good and worth a visit, but patronizing this restaurant serves another purpose. The owner of this restaurant opens his place to homeless people on Monday evenings and serves them free of charge. That, to me, is well-worth helping this owner stay in business.

We were actually trying to go another pizza place in West Des Moines and it was not open yet. Then we drove to the south side to go to another pizza place and wow, it was closed. Drove back up the street and saw this place and though, eh, why not? Dare I say, divine intervention? What a nice little... More

Stopped in with the family after a long drive to Des Moines. Looking at it we weren't sure there was dine in seating, there was. Short and sweet- good service, good free garlic bread, great pizza crust, toppings, and sauce. The water with fruit in it was a refreshing drink. The price also was right. Check this place out.

As in other reviews, the pizza is great with a nice kick to the sauce. The thin crust is nice, and Doug does great things for the community and deserves the public's support.

I love this pizza. The sauce has a little kick to it and the toppings are plenty. You can't help but love the guy who runs this little gem. He is fantastic. He is sweet and very reasonable. You would be missing out if you didn't try this. I refer people here all the time..

Doug makes his own sauce, which took first place at the Italian American festival a couple years ago. He uses top ingredients, and is a great cook.

W love the pizza here. The bacon cheeseburger is the very best. Thin crust and super duper tomato sauce. Called everything sauce and you can buy it by the jar for use at home. They also have salsa. We have had this carry out and delivered several times and we love it.
