Rocky Reeves returns with Rock Back Pizza

Mural at Rock Back Pizza in Newnan

The mural illustrated above appears on the wall at a restaurant in Newnan, Georgia. If it looks familiar, it should. If you think it’s an odd place for such a mural to appear, think again…

Frater Earl “Rocky” Reeves, one of the founders of Mellow Mushroom, has returned to the pizza business with Rock Back Pizza in Newnan, Georgia.

Together with business partner, Biff Farmer, and his sister Claire Williams, Rocky has opened a “Rockabilly” music themed restaurant that celebrates the earliest days of Rock ‘n’ Roll. Think Carl Perkins, Elvis Pressly, Bill Haley & His Comets, and the like.

Their website describes the atmosphere as “practically covered in original underground-style comic art, sculpture and artifacts … a loud, rockin’ and colorful place where staff is encouraged to dance if they feel like it – and they usually do.”

Rock Back Pizza is at 311 Newnan Crossing Bypass.  Hours are Sun-Thu 1100am-1000pm, Fri+Sat 1100am-1100pm.
