We hoped we would be able to eat at Avalanche, but the store itself only has a waiting area. Just FYI. We ordered the Godzilla, Veggie Rainbow and Vegan Werewolf, and all were truly very good. Were they the best I've ever had? No, but if I lived in Athens it would definitely be my go-to pizza place. We loved... More

Although they were swamped on Saturday night, our wait was only 1/2 hour. It was worth it. We ordered the Ted Nugent pizza. Talk about toppings, pretty much any meat you'd want on a pizza. It's a shame they are only take-out, still worth the money and the wait. Best pizza I've ever eaten!

Yummy pizza. Huge list of toppings. Sadly, only take out. Wish there was a place to sit down. Lalalalala.

We ordered two salads and something else ( a minimum $$. Is required for delivery. It wasn't a particularly busy night; the OU students were still in break and it was in the middle of the week. After 45 minutes (we live 5 minutes away by car) the food hadn't come. We called. "Should be there in a couple minutes,"... More

My son takes me there, or more to the point has me take him there, whenever I'm visiting and it's always been fantastic. They also deliver to the hotels. Now my daughter's starting at OU also so I'll be enjoying their pizza for four more years. It's good cold too...

This is a great pizza joint. Crust is just right. not too thick but not too thin with great flavor. A overwhelming number of topping choices - read up and plan before you drop by as the choices are. many. 3 pizza deal gives you a. chance to try several. .

Apart from an excellent crust, I love the inventiveness for identifying new toppings. We love the shrimp Genovese and its thin crust. However, a plain old cheese pizza is wonderful. My only complaint is that the wait is at times waaay too long.

If you're visiting in Athens, skip the chain pizza places and head over to Avalanche. Even if you're not into organic, local produce, I can't believe that you won't find something to love. We pretty much get pizza every week or two and it's always Avalanche. Since we pick up - not living in Athens proper - we always get... More

What can I say--Avalanche is an Athens fixture and never disappoints. You can order a pizza or 2 or 3 to cook at home, get one delivered, pick up one that is ready to chow down--whatever suits you. Also, the wings are the best in Athens, too, in my opinion. Always really tender, sauce is a little spicy for some... More
