While visiting my Son in Raleigh, he insisted we visit one of his favorite hangouts. I must say I wasn’t all that impressed when we entered to place. It looked like an old bar that had probably seen better days. We ordered a couple beers, ordered a pizza, and took one of the tables against the pack wall. The pizza... More

Had two awesome foldable pepperoni slices. I was startled by their size when they came out. Closest to NY authenticity as it gets.

Ruckus is a cute little bar/pizza shop with a good vibe, good brews and amazing pizzas! There pizzas are to notch for a hungry family to some college kids with the drink munchies. Very reasonably priced with giant slices.

The atmosphere is that of a crowded noisy bar with TVs running. The pizza is hand made in a small booth near the front - and it is excellent. There is a lot more on the menu, but so far I've only tried the pizza.

We go here pretty often and always enjoy it. The staff is friendly and everything we have had has been above average.

We recently visited Rukus and ordered the chicken pizza and white pizza. The pizza was just awesome. Think crust and very tasty. Please visit them if you are nearby. Great place

Finding good pizza has been a challenge since moving to NC. But my husband found Ruckus and we love it. Located near NC State it's a great college spot with multiple TV's and there's a small stage so they may have live music sometimes. What I do know is that the pizza is great! My job recently moved to a... More

Friendly, sportsy bar/pizza joint with an air of fun and relaxation We were greeted warmly, offered VERY reasonably priced beer, and served up quick, delicious, made-to-order pizza slices. There were multiple TVs tuned to various sporting events, so we couldn't ask for a better stopover while in the area for a swim meet. The music was a little loud for... More

Our office ordered pizza from Ruckus and it was HUGE and scrumptious. When we went to pick it up the staff was friendly and very helpful. Even went as far as to help me bring the HUGE boxes out to the car. The toppings are fresh and plentiful!!
