Definatly the best pizza in Athens Ohio.

Vast ingredient choices as well as crust, sauce, cheese choices. Very fresh and local ingredient usage very good pizzas. I ventured out to try diff. flavors and the spinach and mushrooms where fresh not canned like other pizza chain shops. Avalanche is a one of a kind pizza joint. #3 on my top 5... read more

Avalanche Pizza is good, yes. They use local, high quality ingredients. Their problem, however, lies in their lackadaisical attitude about service. I'm not talking about slow service, but rather rudeness to the point of managers calling us back on the delivery driver's phone to reprimand us over a computer error that they deemed our fault.They messed up our whole evening...

The majority of the ingredients used by Avalanche are from local sources (within a 30-50 mile radius). They have some of the best combinations I have ever seen such as their Mt. Olympus and K-2 along with very good deals. They are willing to use pesto or their secret ninja sauce instead of marinara. Avalanche is carry out or pick... More

OK, there is simply no better pizza in the US, as established not only by their awards but by the multiple pizzas I have had from here. Their specialty pies are all the best and the prices are reasonable for the product. Look, if you want pizza and you are in Athens, you would be an idiot to go anywhere... More

This is my husbands favorite pizza place in Athens. I would consider him an expert because I think he could eat it everyday. Avalanche uses local organic products for their menu items. I am very fond of their basil pesto dipping sauce. Awards plastered in restaurant speak for itself.

My family likes this pizza, but I do not because they have a tendency to burn their pepperoni pizza. When I called to complain about the pizza being burned, the person said that they can't help it because that is the way their oven works. When I said that was ridiculous, the manager hung up on me. We live in... More

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!
