Arcada’s Rock ‘N Za wood fired pizza experience to open soon!

Culminating a 10 month renovation project, and as a way to celebrate National Pizza Week, a new pizza experience is coming to St. Charles! Ron Onesti, President and CEO,of Onesti Entertainment, announced today the wood-fired pizza experience will be opening soon.

“After months of renovations on the Arcada Theatre and it’s surrounding store fronts, we are ready to begin the re-opening process.”  Onesti said.  “I am very excited to bring the community back for music and meals, in a safe way.”

The first of Onesti’s creations to open will be a new and extremely unique pizza and grab-and-go food experience.  Since the eatery is more of a store front, with a wide variety of grab-and-go food options, we can allow customers to safely order food in a carry-out fashion and wearing masks.

Living up to its name, Rock ‘N Za will feature over 20 wood-fired pizzas, cleverly named after famous musical artists such as the Ides of Mushroom, The Freddie Meatball, the Chubby Checker Chicken Parm, and so many more!  Also included in the line-up are creative soups and salads, grilled and Chicago-style hot dogs, gourmet popcorn and pretzels, and flavor-burst soft serve ice cream.

Rock ‘N Za will also be the location of Arcada merchandise available for purchase, and where the visiting bands will sell its t-shirts, photos and CDs.  There will be seating for the grab-n-go food and beverages and a vintage pinball machine corner with games by KISS, Aerosmith, Beatles, ELVIS, Metallica and Guns ‘N Roses.

“We are very excited to bring a creative pizza experience to our customers with a custom-made pizza oven.” Onesti said.  “We have even started planning a “Free Pizza” day to celebrate the 2022 National Pizza Week, and we can’t wait!”

While an exact opening date hasn’t been announced, Onesti said it will be sometime in February.   A grand opening event will be announced soon as well.  Hours and a complete menu  can be found at www.rocknza.com.
