Rock N’ Roll Sushi Opening at Butler North


Gainesville, FL – March 1st, 2022 – Butler Enterprises is excited to announce that Rock N’ Roll Sushi is opening a second location in Gainesville at Butler North this summer. 


This is not your typical sushi restaurant. 80s and 90s rock ‘n’ roll memorabilia adorns the walls, TVs play classic rock music videos, as rock music is heard over the surround sound system. You don’t just eat at Rock N’ Roll Sushi; you experience it. 


“We break all the traditions of your typical sushi restaurant,” says Jim Dykes, the Gainesville franchise owner. Breaking traditions isn’t always a bad thing, especially in the case of this restaurant. Dykes explains that Rock N' Roll Sushi’s soaring popularity is “the mix of offerings for the consummate sushi lover and for the one who doesn’t like sushi.”


The American-style sushi restaurant offers an array of classic sushi rolls, specialty rolls, nigiri, sashimi, and hibachi. Popular appetizers include edamame, Rockin’ Lobster, and homemade wontons. In addition to the hibachi section of the menu, there are also vegetarian options. 


The “Headliners” or Signature rolls include the VIP Roll (shrimp tempura, krab stick, cream cheese, Cajun-seasoned crawfish, baked krab meat, jalapeno, spicy mayo, sweet chili, eel sauce, and crunchy flakes), the Jam Sesh Roll (Yellowtail tuna, spicy mayo, red tuna, krab stick, sweet chili, eel sauce, and sesame seeds), and the baked Tour Bus Roll (spicy tuna, krab stick, cream cheese topped with seared filet mignon, jalapeño, spicy mayo, sweet chili, eel sauce, sriracha, and crunchy flakes).


“We knew we needed to be in Butler Plaza on our first visit to Gainesville, but unfortunately, there wasn’t any space available,” says Jim Dykes. “We opened in Newberry and continued to keep in touch. Finally, we were able to secure a location. We are very excited to be opening Rock N' Roll Sushi at the premier retail development in Florida!” 


Rock N' Roll Sushi will be located at 3205 Clark Butler Boulevard, Suite 50, Gainesville, FL 32608, next to Tijuana Flats in Butler North. Rock N’ Roll Sushi is targeting an open date in late summer of 2022.


Located in southwest Gainesville, Florida, Butler Enterprises offers over 150 stores and restaurants spanning 2 million square feet. Butler Enterprises is the largest retail center in North Central Florida.
