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

This lace has a wide variety of pizzas, uses local ingredients, and has good service for carry-outs. Great to support a local business and get great food.

I've had pizza from Avalanche three times as of this review and each time I've been extremely pleased, even surprised, as to just how good it is. Order a pizza as you normally might elsewhere and be prepared for an overdose of clean, hearty flavors. This is how pizza was meant to be made.

Great pizza deals - just ask at the counter. The pesto is pretty darn good, the bechemel even better. An insider tip is that if you are vegetarian or vegan, they keep soy beef and chicken mockups that can be substituted for any of the normal version toppings. The roasted garlic is fabulous and the Mount Phillymore is an excellent,... More
