Great neighborhood spot
We've picked up carryout from here and decided to dine in. The food is very good and the portions are a good value for the money. Free corkage on BYOB makes a great value even better. Service was good and the restaurant is probably best described as energetic both in the decor and noise levels. We'll definitely be back!

We went at 6p on a Friday & there were only 2 tables filled. Once 6:30-7p came around the place started to fill up. The restaurant is BYOB. We started with the house salad with ginger dressing. The dressing has a peanut flavor to it and it wasn't my favorite but the salad was fresh. We ended up getting 3 rolls, one veggie (asparagus and avacado with cream cheese), the Black Monster, and Spicy Tataki. The veggie was very fresh, the Spicy Tataki is served on a dish that has actual flames. It was a tad spicy but not too bad. The Black Monster was amazing! This was our favorite roll out of the 3. It comes with black rice so it is a different consistecy. Overall our experience was really good and the service was fast and friendly.

I like to try new restaurants
I like to try new restaurants and this is a little gem. The food was very good and the great. It was nice and quiet so that me and me friends were able to have conversion without talking. I would definitely visit this restaurant again.

Rollapalooza never disappoints.
Rollapalooza never disappoints. I visit to eat-in and take-out all the time and the food and service super consistent. The place is BYOB with no corkage fee, the sushi is fresh and the maki innovative. There is nothing bad I can say about this place other than the decor/ambiance, which is a little pedestrian.

Great BYOB Sushi
We've been to Rollapalooza a few times over the past month and just love it. The service is great, and they accommodated our last minute addition of people to our 8 pm Friday reservation without making us wait. The sushi was fresh and delicious (love the Mafia and Turtle rolls), and a terrific time was had by all.

I don't usually write reviews, but I wanted to write something quick and short for the quality of service and the food we got at Rollapalooza. It's a neighborhood gem, easily some of the best priced quality Sushi locations in all of Chicagoland. It's a little small inside, but it's a good fit. We sat there for three hours, eating and drinking (BYOB but no corkage fee) and enjoying the conversation. Great find.

I think the rolls here are wonderful and there is an awesome selection. The staff are ALWAYS friendly and the service is excellent (especially for BYOB). It's a little crammed in there when the place is full. It's still one of my favorite sushi places in Chicago.

The Gem of Boystown
I eat here at least once a week... Sometimes more! Yes it's that good. Fresh sushi, warm and friendly staff. This is a frills, no whistles type of restaurant and its BYOB! It's great to come have dinner some wine then hit the bars or not.

I go to Rollapalooza about once a month and the sushi has always been fresh and the rolls are excellent! We ordered the Boston, Black Monster, Rollapalooza, and the AA cream cheese roll (veggie). The Boston was excellent, Black Monster is my favorite roll and it's always amazing, the AA cream cheese roll is light roll to cleanse the palate and the Rollapalooza roll was good. I am not a huge crab fan so I didn't enjoy the rollapalooza roll as much as others but it was still good. The servers are very attentive and friendly which always makes the experience more enjoyable.
The restaurant is small so making reservations is definitely a good idea.
Overall the sushi and service is great and it's BYOB so why wouldn't you try this place out?!

This place was a nice surprise - we found the menu to be quite extensive, but found many unique items that we would like to come back and try. The quality of food was outstanding. Love the black rice!

We always have a great time and no matter what we order we really enjoy. If you have friends that don't eat seafood they are always open to making something special for you or try their AA Salad & AA rolls.
Can't wait to return!!

Great Sushi and Service
Rollapalooza always has great sushi and service. I try and go here at least once a month and they never disappoint. We had the Spicy Tataki, which comes out flaming, and the roll is a tad spicy (it's one of my favorites), the black monster (which is my favorite), and the AA Cream Cheese Roll. I'm not sure how they make the AA Cream Cheese Roll taste so good but it's an excellent veggie roll to cleanse the palate in between eating different rolls.
The service is always quick and everyone is very friendly. I do recommend making a reservation as it does tend to get busy around 6p.

Awesome Roll Selection
Rollapalooza is perfect before a night out in Boystown. My friends and I split several rolls, and none of them disappointed. Our table favorite was the R & J which is a spin-off of a classic Philadelphia. Our other favorite was the Black Monster, and several other tables seemed to enjoy that one also. I would definitely come back here or have it delivered!
