If you like to get creative when it comes to pizza you will be happy with the pizza. Just the same as you will be happy with a traditional cheese or pepperoni pizza for the kids or those who are fans of traditional pizza. While the old Late Night Pizza has closed years ago. I am very satisfied with Avalanche... More

We were in town for one night during our trip home and we were tired of restaurants so we decided to order some pizzas. It was the best choice we made during our entire vacation. The pizzas here are unusual, unique and full of flavor. We had a Greek pizza and the Werewolf pizza (can't remember precise names) but the... More

We had a Pesto Chicken Pizza, which includes cashews on top! It was a great combination. There were many suggestions, but you can also pick your own favorite toppings. One large served our family of five without leftovers, but if you are really hungry, we suggest you get an additional one. We also had a Landslide salad, very generous portion.... More

This is very good pizza and you have lots of toppings to choose from. I like the 3 large pizza/2 toppings deal. It is not NY pizza, but it is pretty good. It is strictly take-out or delivery.

Got two pies to go. One these and one Godzilla. Both had good taste. I know they are New York style, but I'd like a crisper crust. I will return again.

Yes, you read that correctly. Avalanche has 30 signature pizzas, plus the usual assortment of pizza toppings and sizes, plus calzones, salads, and desserts like tiramisu. No wonder they've been voted Best Pizza in Athens 15 years running! I went vegetarian with the San Andreas Fault Californian with a delicious marinara sauce, fresh mozzarella and provolone cheese, loaded with whole... More

After reviewing the menu I was really excited to try this out. Although the "Nuge" had plenty of toppings to it the pizza itself was pretty bland. Very little sauce and no kick what so ever. Just not memorable. Employees were friendly though and delivery was much quicker than they had estimated.

Thank Granny A
