Roly Poly's expert rollers build sandwiches and craft fresh salads and soups, which precede fat-free cups of frozen yogurt. Cream cheese collects dried cranberries, walnuts, cashews, spicy honey mustard, and a collection of veggies to form the nut-and-honey cold rolled sandwich ($3.95 for a half; $6.50 for a whole), and inside the lower-fat, hot-pressed buffalo slim ($3.95 for a half; $6.50 for a whole), sliced chicken lifts mushrooms and plum tomatoes, and steams in a whole-wheat-tortilla sauna of spicy wing sauce, fat-free ranch, and melted reduced-fat cheese. Mixed greens mingle with turkey breast, black-forest ham, and crunchy vegetables in the Alpine chef salad ($7.25), and a bowl of creamy roasted-garlic tomato soup ($4.25) warms palates with each slurp. Towers of fat-free frozen yogurt ($4.95 for a large) slowly melt atop tongues, unleashing floods of rainbow sprinkles and chocolate syrup upon slumbering taste bud villages.
Since founding Riverside Pizza in Lawrenceville in 1999, Al and Sandy Thompson have expanded their pizzeria business to a total of nine locations across the Atlanta area. The Thompsons oversee each shop, ensuring that pizza chefs top the day's dough with homemade sauce and real cheese grated by real cows. Besides loading pizzas with everything from sausage and mushrooms to barbecue chicken, the Riverside crew assembles roast beef, club, and Italian–style sandwiches alongside caesar and greek salads.
Growing up in New Jersey, Tom Tillotson loved New York–style pizza from birth. But when he move to Atlanta in the 1980s, he found himself bereft of that perfect combination of flaky crust, savory sauce, and fresh cheese plucked right off the tree. Facing a life without New York's most foldable delicacy, Tom decided to take matters into his own hands. Swapping recipes with master chefs from across the East Coast, he cobbled together an authentic New York pizzeria for the Empire State of the South. Today, Enzo's Pizza serves pies that would even please Fiorello Laguardia; whether it's the meat-laden Goombah or the pesto-kissed Paisan, every pizza comes in NYC-style Neapolitan and the thicker, heartier Sicilian preparation.
Mountain Pizza & Wings keeps its menu simple so that it can enchant taste buds with a diverse selection of sauces and toppings to customize their pizzeria cuisine. The eatery’s eponymous Mountain White pizza trades traditional tomato sauce for a garlicky base, then covers that with layers of chicken, tomatoes, and feta. Chicken wings steep in one of six sauces, including traditional drizzles of hot or honey BBQ and more complex blankets of lemon pepper or Enigma codes. Five oven-baked subs sandwich a map-full of fillings from Italian staples, such as meatballs and sausage, to Philly-inspired steak 'n' cheese.
