    I remember when both of these were opening I had seen post about them and was wondering what the current state at these two establishments are. Obviously I am not going to Vegas for just pizza but I have heard over time that both were good places for a quick slice and thats what I would use them for. Just curious if they are worth the effort to acquire.

    Both are in business and doing well.

    Pizza Rock has outstanding pizzas and a good vibe inside. The "rock" part entails the music tracks getting louder as the night progresses.

    Pin-Up Pizza is convenient and (relatively) priced well for a quick meal. I thought the pizza was O.K. - standard fare.

    I've only been to pizza rock once, but it was awful. I didn't even finish my slice! It was served barely warm and soggy. It gets good reviews on here but I was really disappointed. Pin Up Pizza I don't know about. If you have a car, go to Naked City Pizza , it's very good in my opinion.

    Thanks for the feedback from both.

    I have no intention of going out of my way for pizza, just figure a slice or so for a snack/lunch would be sufficient. I have no expensive dining plans ether except for Wicked Spoon.

    Ive been to both Pizza Rock locations out here too many times to count and ive never had a bad pie. I will say that when ordering by the slice, it may not be so good.

    That's an unfortunate experience at Pizza Rock. I've been a few times and it's always been excellent. I don't get quick slices though I usually order a whole pizza and share it. One thing that's neat about Pizza Rock is the selection of pizza styles, from Neapolitan and Sicilian to New York, Chicago, California, and Detroit. I'd recommend the Margherita, it's amazing.

    The Burrata burger could also compete for best burger in Vegas.

    Pin Up Pizza isn't anything to write home about, but it's a pretty good slice. It's convenient, easily accessible from the strip, and are open late.

    I am pretty simple with pizza, I don't do fancy toppings to types, just a pep or pep/sausage is all I need and really all I desire on a pizza. Being just me going, I am not sure if getting a whole pie is worth it, I guess I should check the menus and see about sizes and such, but if I get a whole one at Pizza Rock, it may ruin my appetite to try the Heart Attack Grill, which I am on the fence about anyways.

    The thing to keep in mind about Pizza Rock is the chefs fix the pizzas to what could be termed traditional spec. You have to be knowledgeable about what you're ordering. Some types of pizza are meant to be relatively soggy or limp - so that's how they'll make it. The menu is extensive and can be very intimidating. Having said that, I've seen the wait staff, who are very pizza-savvy, take quite a bit of time to explain the types of pizza to people who need guidance.

    Pin-up Pizza is meh. If you have Sbarro in a mall near you, it's pretty similar to that. Giant slices, though.

    MAYBEE part of my problem with PR was that was the ONE pizza slice I had back in December on trip I was expecting a lot more. Vegas has a lot of good pizza options, too say the least ! Actually the guy putting the pizza slice in the oven looked bored/ mad at his job/ maybe tired/ hating life/ hungover I don't a know but he took it out WAY to early and since I'd taken a bite out of it I thought I shouldn't ask to heat it some more lol. Sounds like it's better to order a whole pizza there than get a slice...

    Definitely, GVR has a separate place for Pizza Rock by the slice and its never been as good as the full pizza from the main restaurant across the casino floor. Its probably just as good if you get it right out of the oven, but as soon as it sits for a while it loses its appeal.

    Good tips. I see a normal pizza is 12in, I can surly eat more of that and if I can't I am sure i can find a homeless person in that area that may enjoy something to eat.

    I haven't tried Pizza Rock but we did have Pin Up pizza twice on our last trip to Vegas. We were staying at PH and after having our luggage lost by SW, us passing the entrance to PH and trying to get turned around and back to the entrance, huge line at check in, we were starving by the time we were all settled into our room. Pin Up had a very short line so we both got their combo of a slice, a garlic knot and a beer. It really hit the spot. We had it again later in the week as a quick snack and it was just as good IMO. The garlic knots are a little better than the pizza but we enjoyed the pizza also but the slices are huge.

    Pizza rock is the best pizza i've ever had (I still haven't tried secret pizza to be fair). I've only gotten it as a whole pie, so prepared fresh just for me. I'd go out of my way for Pizza Rock and whole heartily recommend it.

    Getting a slice from the walk up counter is probably hit and miss....but i've never tried it before.

    That maybe what I need. Wonder if I can get the personal one outside of happy hour times, I am going be there on Sunday. Either way, It is a go for me.
