  • Get the motz stix. Pretty much the size of a twinkie.
  • The Mozzarella Sticks are awesome!!!!
  • Charlie McKenna, chef of Lillie's Q, eats here on his nights off. He loves the Mozzarella sticks.
  • Skip the pizza. It's average at best. Go with the bottle caps, corn dog, and curly fries. Unhealthy, but undoubtedly satisfying if you're having a moment of weakness - and need a fried food fix.
  • Try the mozzarella sticks from our 100 Best list: Youve got to give props to a mozzarella stick whose mozz is made in-house.
  • Pizza is good. Mozzarella sticks are insane. Sofa king good.
  • After the meal, you get a hot towel to cleanse your hands (at least in the winter). Kinda like going to a Japanese restaurant...nice touch.
  • Wackier varieties of the Quad-cities style pie include taco pizza, teeming with mozzarella, shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes and tortilla chips. Ol?
  • The shtick at Roots is that it hawks pizza in the style of the Quad Citiesthat is, pizza with maltthats cut with scissors. Turns out the Quad Cities style can cross county lines and be successful.
  • I'd skip the pizza rage and BUILD YOUR OWN SALAD. It comes tossed for you w/ several different ingredient choices. It's a hearty & filling size too!
  • Hey Roots Pizza, join Freebie!
  • Mozzarella sticks!!
  • Open storefront, great craft beer selection and really good calamari!
  • Specialty creations include a taco pizza: taco seasoned crumbled sausage with mozzarella band cheddar, topped with lettuce, diced tomatoes and taco-seasoned chips; and a gluten-free pizza.
  • Best Tomato, avocado, mozzarella salad!!! Good pizzas too
  • MOZZARELLA STICKS!!! Whatever you do, do not leave without trying the mozzarella sticks! The mozzarella is made in house, and worth the trip alone.
  • Sit at the bar and order yourself a beer, mozzarella sticks and a pizza. You'll be happy you did.
  • Definitely order a bloody mary with an afternoon QC Style pizza.

  • If big johns working the bar ask him to help you build a pizza or salad. Dude knows his shit.
