Roma Restaurant

This month’s featured burger at Stuft Burger is the Backyard Burger, a USDA beef burger, topped with double battered onion rings, smoked cheddar cheese, Brew #2, mustard, lettuce, tomato and pickle chips. A burger like that has to take home the gold. Choose from sides such as regular or sweet potato fries, onion strings or homemade mac and cheese. Wash it all down with a nice cold beer, a glass of wine or a Captain Crunch milkshake. Now try to find room for their salted caramel brownie dessert.

Roma Restaurant opened in Greeley in 1988 and has been a local hang out for and favorite pizza joint ever since. The fun atmosphere and affordable pricing has drawn families and UNC students for three generations. The Greeley staple strives to make each customer experience wonderful, even giving dough balls for youngsters to play with. Roma has won Greeley’s BEST pizza since the inception of the award and aims to continue by using premium meats, fresh vegetables, making dough daily, being clean, having a strong staff, and providing variety in the menu. If you do not know what Carolis or Bazookas are, then you need to visit your nearest Roma to see what makes Greeley love Roma, and Roma love Greeley!
