What I find interesting about Atl is the style but medocre food. In some towns, its reverse, you'll see a Hole-in-the wall but great meal. Here it's LA style with average fare.

Here we go. The Chicago deep dish vs. New York thin crust war in Atlanta!

I like Nancy's too, but I haven't had there deep dish yet. I'll have to give it a shot.

Yes, but it's in midtown. Both locations are roughly 13 miles from my doorstep, but with a dozen decent places within 5-6 miles it seems like a lot of effort. Then again, we drive 10 miles to get to the Bone Garden, so...

In Michigan there are Jet's Pizzas all over the place, and that was one of our favorites. We have been thinking about making a trip to Smyrna to get some, and have been hoping that they open one in Gwinnett County. Jet's is a good example of Detroit/Cleveland pizza, which is thinner than Chicago style but thicker than New York. In Cleveland, there are local pizza places with that style pizza on every corner, but it is much harder to find here in Atlanta.

Whoa... I see that. I didn't realize it was such a large chain.

There seem to be only two in the Atlanta metro thusfar: Smyrna and PTC.

Yeah, it's certainly a thicker crust. It isn't stuffed or Chicago style, but it's quite filling. Their "Jet's bread" is rather good, too.

We took one of our New York friends to Pepperoni's in Duluth, which also serves a Michigan/Ohio style pizza of moderate thickness (the owner is from Detroit). However, our friend thought that it was too "doughy" compared to New York style. For me, however, that's the type of pizza that I grew up eating, and I love it! I think I might have to make a trip over to Jet's this weekend. I also enjoy Everybody's Pizza near Emory.

Yes I am out of line here as all the suggestions seem to be OTP.

Theres a place called Traditions on Peachtree Industrial that is good NY style pizza. I've had it twice when it was better when the older gentleman made it but it gets generally good reviews.

Athens Pizza, 950 and Blue Moon are all great choices as some have already mentioned.
