BEST PIZZA IN ATHENS, GA


"When it opened Downtown in the early 2000s, some scoffed at the idea that a pizza place with "fancy" ingredients could compete with the grungy but popular late-night dive Little Italy around the corner. An upstairs bar and tasty slices proved naysayers wrong, and though it's struggled with ways to comfortably move people through its slow-moving ordering line, Transmet's going strong and opened other local locations since."
