New York Style Pizza not very New Yorky

Tried the new New York style pizza. The pizza is huge. The outer crust is very thick and bread like. What is missing is the oil on top that cause the cheese on top to get that fried cheese taste. The chorizo sausage was also too bland. Overall, not so bad for an Ohio attempt at a New York... read more

I'm new to the area. First time ordering, I went to pick it up, checked in and waited in the lobby for 30 minutes. I went to the counter and asked how much longer and he turned around and got it off the warning rack and said "oh, here it is". No idea how long it'd been sitting there. I... More

After a long day of driving I was hungry. I just wanted something delivered. I wanted to support local business. BIG MISTAKE! I ordered the Italian Sandwich. Mostly bread with sub standard deli meat. I also ordered a Honey Greek Yogurt. They also require a credit card for a delivery. They gave me no option of cash when ordering online!... More

Did have a pizza few week ago that was a bit underdone, but I love their pizzas especially when I am too busy to cook.

Called from nearby Holiday Inn. Great Service: Great Pizza. Non of the usual synthetic stuff. Apparently they pride themselves in using locally sourced produce. You can tell.

The pizza itself is fairly decent but not with the price or the abuse from the staff. When my wife asked if they had a discount for veterans on veterans day they laughed at her and hung up. When I mentioned it on Facebook the general manager of all people called me a "Contriving Dick". If you order more than... More

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.
