Excellent food, service was top notch. The restaurant was a bit loud, but it was a smaller space, that was pretty busy so that is to be expected.

This place is good for the price. Our server was friendly, knowledgable, and attentive. The salad was good if not great. The dressing was a peanut butter flavored dressing and if you ask me, a little too much peanut butter. The sushi and rolls we ordered were all very fresh tasting, and really delicious. The black rice is kind of nutty, and works well with sushi or sashimi. We brought beer and the server immediately put it in the fridge, and brought frozen glasses out for us to use. She also kept an eye on our glasses and offered to bring another when we were low. I asked her to bring one out to a patron who didn't know it was a byob and she did so without complaint. Over all this place is very good, and the prices are reasonable for this neighborhood.

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.

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!
