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 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.
