New wood-fired pizza restaurant opens in Kennewick

KENNEWICK. Wash. -- The Rock Wood-Fired Kitchen opened its doors, the pizza place is in the Southridge part of Kennewick, across from Fujiyama.

The restaurant offers burgers, pastas, sandwiches, micro-beer, and, of course, pizza. This is the 12th of its kind in the state, but the first here locally. It comes complete with two separate dining floors and two full bars.

"Something to see for everybody, but when you're in here, the music is a little louder, people are really sociable, it's just kind of a good feeling walking away from it. It's a place you want to hang out, a place you want to be," said owner Brad Loucks.

Loucks tells KEPR that they are also looking into Yakima as another possible location in the future.

The Rock is open until midnight every day.
