Excellent College-Town Pizza! Everybody Is Somebody Here! – Today I had to see an eye specialist at Emory Hospital, and was extremely hungry after my appointment. The Emory University campus offers very little, so I just walked over to the neighborhood Emory Village. Alot of the old places are now closed-Horton's Drugstore, The Cedar Tree and others. But alas, Everybody's Pizza is still alive. It has been at least twenty-five years, since I've walked through those doors. And it was like walking back to my college days. Started with an excellent mixed greens salad, with home-made Pameasan dressing and anchovies. Yum! Got the house special "Everybody's Pizza", individual size. The toppings were all fresh and excellent-peperoni, mushrooms, bell pepper, and topped with an extra order of Mozz. Cheese-straight out of my hippie days, when all fresh veggies were used. No fancy gourmet toppings here, just good healthy toppings, like we all remember. Loved our server. Much too young to be a hippie, she dosen't even know what the word means. Loved the classical music in the background.
Expensive and bad pizza – I read some good reviews of this place. So I called and order a large pie for delivery. It came quickly and hot. But, that was all that was good. The pizza cost $16 and change... I gave the driver a $20, he went to leave, I asked for change. He said "how much do you want?" I said all of it. He handed it back, then I gave him $2. The crust was 2-3 times thicker than it should have been and it tasted like white bread. The crust, sauce and cheese- ALL BLAND. I swear, Papa John's is much better, and I dont even like papa johns...
Bland, average and highly overrated – 30 years ago I thought Everybody's was the most overrated pizza place in town. After recently spending some time on the Emory campus I tried them again, and my opinion is still the same.
The pizza has a very thick bready and doughy crust. The sauce isn't spicy enough. The toppings are skimpy, which is fine because they're also not very flavorful. This is a very bland pizza. If you prefer chewy bread to real pizza, Everybody's is your place.
The restaurant itself is a cut above the average hole in the wall. It's going for something between little bistro and dump. The walls are brick with lots of big windows. Parking can be a problem as the lot next to the restaurant is small and serves several other shops in the area. The staff is friendly but the service is only average.
My opinion is that Everybody's has managed to survive and thrive in this location for decades only because it's located at the edge of the Emory University campus. College students are notorious pizza consumers and not especially demanding. Everybody's probably figures into a lot of pleasant memories of college days, but it's not because of the food.
If you're in the neighborhood and famished, it's an ok place to go. Definitely not worth going more than three miles out of your way for though (and that's ROUND TRIP!).
Completely Delicious! – I LOVE Everybody's Pizza! It is one of the very best pizza joints in town. Organic salads are available with a huge variety of healthy choices for toppings. And the red wine vinaigrette is AMAZING! The pizza comes with a hefty amount of toppings, and there is a huge variety of toppings to choose from as well. My favorite is the goat cheese and tomato pizza. Delicious! But, the standard pepperoni is also a fave. Highly recommended!
SUprisingly good sandwiches – The sandwishes are served on pita brea and were suprisingly good! The pizza is very average.
Health-food consciousness blends with gourmet aspirations at this forever-cool intown pizza parlor. – In Short
A step above the kind of place where you hop off your skateboard for a plain slice and a Coke, Everybody's doubles as a neighborhood standby and a well-behaved college hangout (no chugging contests). Both the Emory and Highlands locations showcase the classic pizza parlor decorative motif: weird art next to giant beer signs. Everybody's serves thinking-man's pizza that emphasizes "gourmet" ingredients and a modest health-food sensibility. The traditional thick-crust pies can be built out with anything from broccoli to pineapple to sesame seeds (though a standard issue sausage pie is ultimately more reliable). More promising still are individually-sized pizza crisps and quaintly innovative pizza sandwiches, both of which sport a consistently crunchy cracker-thin crust. Big winners include the tangy Florentine crisp and the hefty country chicken pizza sandwich with its rustic triple punch of pesto, roasted garlic and goat cheese.
OK Pizza – Hi
i went to everybody's pizza today for the first and last time. I asked the server if the Roasted Peppers were done i house and she looked at me as if I was from another planet. She told me they were peppers. I asked again if they were made in the kitchen or already roasted. she mumbled some answer, that I couldn't understand. The pizza was just fair with a bland sauce and few artichokes. The crust was fair but too thick. It was a nice looking place with enough parking, especially for the area.
Emory EP--not worth the price – I got a veggie combo from Everybody's Pizza: mushrooms, tomatoes, onions, and extra cheese. This was one of the worst pizzas I've ever had. The crust was OK--crisp and chewy--but the rest of the pizza was a disaster. The sauce was bland, the veggies were sparse and flavorless, and the cheese was layered on so thickly as to absolutely drown out everything else. Throw in the hefty price ($25.80 for an extra-large) and I'd say you're better off at Domino's down the street, as long as you're not looking for frou-frou toppings.
Everybody's is the best!! – Everybody's Pizza is far better than any of the "chain" pizza parlors in the Atlanta area..the location and originality are second to none and did I also mention that the pizza is fabulous !! There are also other menu items that complement the various pizzas that are offered (everybodys salad) and the cozy college atmosphere and diversity in the clientele is a testament to their popularity in the area. They undoubtedly have the best pizza in Atlanta!!!
the best pizza anywhere – If I'm going to eat pizza, this is the only place I go. I've been eating here since I was 5 and it's good to know that it's still the same great food!!!
