Baby Tommy’s in Atlanta–The “Cheese Dump” Slice

Over the past six years, The Pizza Snob has visited and given his two cents about 365 pizza joints across this great land plus a few overseas. I’ve given each a rating from one to five and the average rating of all I’ve so far tasted is 3.85. This score falls in somewhere between my […]

Atlanta’s Antico – Scrumptious Neapolitan Pizza in an Surprising Italian Village

The first time I heard mention of Atlanta’s Antico Pizza Napoletana was a few years ago in a Tweet of praise from Nashville musician Jason Isbell. Sadly, it took this long for me to get back to Georgia and visit this place that Jason so highly touted. Recently, in need of a long weekend escape […]

Vinny’s N.Y. Pizza—A Quick Slice with Free Parking in Midtown Atlanta

When I planned to test-drive some new pizza joints on my annual summer visit to ATL, I expected to encounter the usual local hurdles of traffic and parking. This year was no different, and the mad Friday afternoon congestion limited me to only a single stop. But imagine my surprise when I found free fifteen-minute […]

UPDATE: Atlanta Buckhead’s Ray’s New York Pizza Is No More

Original Review: 10/03/13 PIZZA SNOB RATING *** ½ Working on a Good Thing Whenever the opportunity arises, the Pizza Snob will check up on the places he has reviewed to look for casualties. Recently during my annual trip to Atlanta, the drive along Piedmont Road revealed that Ray’s New York Pizza had transformed into something […]

Transmetropolitan—A Late Night Slice in Athens, GA

Music City Mike’s late night adventure in Athens had ended, but there was still time for the Pizza Snob to find some more action.  Earlier that evening, the Clayman and I had walked by Transmetropolitan, a swanky-looking place that serves up fancy-looking pizzas—perhaps too fancy for the Snob’s simple taste. However, with the midnight hour […]

Little Italy Pizzeria—Some Fine-Tasting Pie in Athens, GA

Music City Mike was on an excursion to the Musical Mecca of Athens, Georgia, to see the band Television play one of only three U.S. shows. My maiden visit to this college town, home of the University of Georgia Bulldogs, would allow MCM’s alter identity, the Pizza Snob, a chance to explore a new city […]

Ray’s New York Pizza—A Swanky Slice in Atlanta’s Buckhead

Thanks to the wonders of Priceline, Ms. Pie and I can afford to spend our ATL getaway weekends in its upscale Buckhead area. Centered around the main thoroughfare of northern Peachtree Road, Buckhead boasts high-rise office buildings, classy hotels, fancy shopping and exquisite dining. On a previous visit, my better half stumbled on to Ray’s […]

Marietta Pizza Company—Great Hipster Slice in Georgia

Ms. Pie and I were heading south for our annual summer weekend in Atlanta. That means shopping for her and record stores and pizza for me.  Our first planned stop was lunch, and we chose to visit a sushi place located in Marietta’s cool downtown square. After finishing, I playfully pulled out my iPhone Pizza […]

UPDATE: Fellini’s Pizza in Atlanta

Original Review: 08/01/12 Previous Rating: **** Near Perfection My annual trip to ATL this summer made me realize one thing—the people in that town just don’t appreciate how good Fellini’s Pizza really is. It makes me cringe whenever it fails to be cited on local “best-of” lists. And, I sincerely apologize for not giving it […]

On the Road – Atlanta, GA – Fellini’s Pizza and More

Music City Mike has always loved Atlanta. And living just 3 ½ hours away has made ATL a frequent destination for me to see bands whose tour is skipping Nashville (Radiohead, Springsteen and Nick Lowe so far this year), an occasional Braves game and also to take my lovely wife, Mrs. Sweetie Pie, for a getaway […]
