Rollapalooza is my favorite neighborhood sushi restaurant. The food is consistently delicious and high-quality and the service is always friendly. This experience was no different!

We were expecting a more upscale environment but it didn’t matter once we tasted the food!

Sashimi platter and miso started us off. Simply delicious. Then, we had a couple rolls— deluxe of some sort and the turtle. Both were great.

We’ll definitely head back next time we are in Chicago!

Such a hidden gem in the north side BYOB sushi game. We went here on Christmas because our normal spot was closed, but this may become our new normal.

Went with my boyfriend for dinner. It was his first time and he LOVED it! We ordered edamame and a seaweed salad as an appetizer and then 4 different rolls for dinner. The Pink Flower and Black Monster were our favorites!

It was our first time to Rollapalooza. We ordered the Rollapalooza roll, Black Garden, Black Monster, and topped it off with the exotic bomba for dessert.

Everything was absolutely delicious! Loved the BYOB, too. The service was excellent. We will be coming back for sure!

Rollapalooza was everything we expected and more! For starters, the playlist they had going on was truly spectacular & added to the mood of the evening, which was a birthday dinner. The food was great & we even went outside of our comfort zone with a hot sushi roll (the fire presentation was awesome!). Overall we had an excellent experience and it will definitely be a regular place I return to.

Really good sushi with inventive flavors and fresh ingredients. We ordered three signature rolls and they were all very good. I really liked the rollapalooza and the tropical.

Food and service was phenomenal. I asked for them to create a custom sign for my girlfriend to celebrate a work assignment and they went above and beyond with the request. Love the variety of sushi and it tasted fresh, high quality. Will definitely be back!

A true gem. We have eaten here approx. 25+ times and always had a wonderful experience. Our fav server is Ann (ask for her). She knows the menu and has designed some of the rolls. By far, best bang for your buck and most unique and high quality rolls in the city. Pro Tip: if you like pieces vs. rolls, get the fatty white tuna. The quality is high and melts in your mouth.

Rollapalooza is my boyfriend and my go-to restaurant in Boystown. The rolls are always high quality and reasonably priced. My favorite role at the moment is the crazy philly roll and my boyfriend’s is the tropical role. The spicy tataki is a fun one too because they light it on fire! I definitely recommend trying this restaurant to all sushi lovers! They also serve rolls with black rice if you are interested in trying something different. We LOVE Rollapalooza!

We’ve been going to Rollapalooza now for about 8 years and have gotten to know the staff over the years. It is so nice to return and to see familiar faces. The food is always fresh and consistently delicious and the service is always fast and friendly. This is our go to Sushi place and we always look forward to our next visit. Plus it’s BYOB. Highly recommend!

We waited over an hour to get our food here. This was one of the worst, most unpleasant dining experiences I have ever had and I would not wish it on ANYBODY. RUN, RUN, RUN, don't walk away from this restaurant. Sub-par sushi to boot - not fresh tasting or delicious. Gimmicky rolls seem designed to cover up low quality fish. We were told at the hour mark (not from arrival mind you, from ordering) that everyone was waiting this long, and it was because they were working on delivery orders first. WTF. I do not go to a restaurant to be told that they can't actually serve us food because they're more interested in take-out orders (also think this might have been a lie and the waitress just forgot to put our order in). In either case, they avoided eye contact from then on and had food not finally arrived we would've walked out. No real apology or ownership of the fact that they completely failed to provide a decent dining experience. It was also very loud and unpleasant inside. HARD PASS. No idea how this restaurant gets such good reviews.

Disappointing that my go-to spot for sushi couldn't accommodate the Friday rush. In the past I have gone on a week day - every time my girlfriend and I walk away impressed by the quality and presentation of the food. Sadly, Friday seemed to be a little too much for the restaurant to handle. My party of 5 did not have food for almost 2 hours. The rolls were far from the masterpieces we have grown accustomed to and the employees did nothing to accommodate or even acknowledge the fact we and almost every other table sat there without food for almost 2 hours.

Sad to write that a place I convenient so often and brought friends to, ended up being such a poor experience.

This was a great sushi place. We were at Wrigley Field for a ball game and wanted sushi for dinner. Found this close by. Dinner was excellent.
