Motley Crue’s “Dr. Feel Good” blared, the collage of KISS album covers that formed an AU symbol on the wall charmed and, most importantly, the flavor from the sushi zinged.

The eatery is everything you’d expect from the name of it – just probably better.

SUSHI!!!! Who doesn’t love sushi? Seriously if you don’t love sushi, I don’t love you. Kidding– kind of, not really. As one of the newest and trendiest restaurants to enter the Tuscaloosa scene, Rock-N-Sushi is the new “it” spot for your sushi cravings. Very seldom can one drive by and not see huge groups of students and locals waiting to be seated to try the new sushi joint in town. Rock-N-Roll offers a mix between classic rock music and sushi, something Tuscaloosa has never seen. On the real though, who doesn’t want to eat and sing along??
