Good almost always

I love Avalanche. Variety of toppings is great, signature pizzas are good. My only complaint is that sometimes the pizza is a little undercooked. I wish they would add eggplant to their toppings list. Try the Cheese bread!

If you win awards in Italy you must be doing something right, and you betcha they do! John and his team are cheerful, creative, and offer a unique style of pizza. Try the cactus jack fajita or the Solent green, maybe even the Godzilla. If you don't go back for more, say a prayer for your soul

Asked a local where they would go for a tasty non-chain pizza and we wound up here. Did the 3-pizza deal... great pies... and there was some to spare which brings me to to warn... this pizza is best eaten fresh and warm. I am a leftover pizza for breakfast fan, but these pies didn't hack it cold the next... More

Not only is the pizza great, but their 3 pizza deal is great also. We bought the 3 14" pizza deal and 4 of us couldn't finish them. The best pizza I've had in Athens.

Non chain pizza, well priced, especially specials. Organic option, popular in this college town. Not over doughed, or over sauced - just plain good.

Ordered the online special: Large 1-topping, order of wings, 2-liter soda and a piece of tiramisu for $16.99. 30 minute delivery time!! :-) Wings were very saucey, but not crispy :-( Pizza crust was nice and chewy :-) Homemade sausage was yummy :-) Needed more cheese :-( No plates and silverware brought, but the hotel has them available :-(

I love Avalanche. We buy the pizza once per month for an event that we host. The topics are always fresh and local. The pesto and chicken pizza is my favorite!

Had better pizzas, and there are LOTS of others in the city to choose from. We got in late and they were still open so it was an easy choice.

We saw that Avalanche is the best local pizza place and pizza is my favorite food so I try to have a local pizza when we travel. We didn't know that Avalanche was pick up or delivery only until we got there. So we walked in and put in an order. They said 20 minutes so we paid and went... 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...
