Roots is one of the only neighborhood options for dine-in pizza, and luckily it’s a solid option. The pizza is Quad-Cities style, which means it’s in cut into rectangles and the toppings are under the cheese. The menu is huge, with a decent selection of salads and rotating group of pizzas designed by local chefs. A huge bar area, large patio outside, and interesting specialty pies make it a great local spot for hanging out with pizza and beer.
