Open 9am-1am XL 1TOPPING PIZZA $ 13 Or XL 1TOPPING PIZZA & Garlic Bread Bites $16.99

Why it works: Here, you can get a pizza for $13 — but why not get those garlic bread bites for just a little bit more? Adding in the hours — including late nights — and the fact that Rocco’s has an extra-large pizza encourages big groups looking for an after-hours snack. Great job!
