The build your own pizza places have changed my life....I love veggie pizzas but no one else in my family does, they are total carnivores. Now we can all have what we want

Went to the new Joe's Pizzaria in Athens.

1) I don't like having to order at the counter. I like a real wait staff.

Also, having to order past the dining room means if a line forms at the counter, the people in line can and are standing over your table. Kids coughing on food does not a good meal make.

2) Place was busy.

3) Pizza - good topping, we had Pepperoni and bacon - good job.

4) Sauce - I remember the sauce on County Line to be much better, but this was not bad, just not as good as I remember it.

5) Cheese - pretty good, a lot of it.

6) Crust - the middle of the pizza was a bit too soft for my liking. The end of the crust was pretty good.

Large pizza, two toppings, 3 drinks -$23.00.

Would I go back: Yes.

Famous Joe's - anyone been there yet?
We have just moved from Connecticut and I actually worked for Frank Pepe's pizza (the BEST pizza in my opinion) and was trying to find something comparable. Any suggestions?

Oh my!

Frank Pepe's - I got hooked on the West Hartford location - great pizza, great service.

Famous Joe's in Athens - should be like New Haven pizza as he is from Bethel, but I didn't find it that great. I'll give him another chance.

Tortora's - Owens Cross Roads - Joe consulted here, and if I lived closer this would be my go to place.

Venice - More like an Olee's. Good pizza, but not great. They are from Chicopee, so it is not like New Haven style, bit thicker. If you are familiar with Olee's - this is a step up.

Sam & Greg's - some people love them, I'm not one of them. I can go back, and probably will - but I find it inconsistent. New Madison location was pretty good.

Pane' y Vino - Neapolitan style - but bit more expensive, and bit gourmet if I remember correctly.

Big Ed's - been here 7 years and still haven't tried it.

Cork & Crust - County Line - went once, was good, but not great. Actually I think it may have been less than good, but it was an experience than none of us wanted to repeat.

I'm probably missing one or two on the list, but I'm starving for breakfast.
==

Nashville - Bella Napoli - best pizza I've had so far in my life, and I've had a lot of pizza. Neapolitan style, made my Neapolitans.

I've heard good things about Five Points Pizza in Nashville too.

--
Birmingham - Tortuga's - Chicago Style, Very good. Takes forever to cook.

Post Office Pies - This may be the most like New Haven style in the area. I'll go back.

Can you make a call and get them to open up something down here?

Nashville - Desano's

Used to be BYOB, but it got out of hand, so now they only allow BYOW. They have 3 wood burning ovens and can really move the pies out.

Desano Pizza - Pizza Tradizionale di Napoli - The Crossroads

It is worth the drive...

Well it looks like another new pizza place is coming in November. Food truck Earth and stone wood is opening up a restaurant.

Yeah, yeah, yeah, old news! Glad you still keep up with current Za happenings down here.

I haven't tried them before, but will one day.

I had Venice just today, been a few weeks, it was excellent.
