patrons beware – On a recent visit to this so called pizza place I was witness to some of the worst racial comments I've ever been part of. A young man was unhappy on the amount of time he had waited for his order and insisted he needed to go and couldnt wait for the pizza any longer and asked to get his money back..... at this point the customer service went way south. Arguing back and forth till finally he was asked to leave with quite the attitude and then was told that if he didnt leave he'd end up in jail with the rest of his people. Most unheard of comment I've ever heard. I would recommend all African Americans to avoid this place at all cost. Wait who am I kidding.... All OF East Atlanta Should Stay Clear Of This Pizza Place.... People like this dont deserve anyones business!!!!!
Great pizza and calzones – Grant Central East has great pizza -- I pick up there at least a couple times per month. Their calzones are great as well, and the salads are fresh and plentiful! Great place to sit and eat (and drink beer)!
Best Service & Food Quantity – Visited last week and ordered dinner salad and small pizza to spilt. The salad was so fresh, like it was just picked from the garden. And the amount of toppings on the pizza was incredible. The service was very personable. We will go back indeed!
No-frills pizza joint fits the EAV vibe perfectly--cheap, easy and heavily-stocked on beer. – In Short
Grant Central Pizza's second location in East Atlanta is exactly what you would expect from a low-lit pizza den in one of Atlanta's coolest, dingy-hip hoods. It's the kind of place you can take your kid brother, yet your hip older cousin will be equally impressed. Concert posters for upcoming shows at the EARL and Variety are pinned up by the bathrooms, and in time-warp-fashion, a few 1980's arcade games let you test your mad skills. Sticking to their appropriately-classic guns, the pizza is no-frills, NY-style--dished by the slice or the pie. Greek salads come in hefty portions for bottom dollar, and unlike the hit-and-miss quality of the pizza, calzones are crispy and consistent. For the crowd, look for a mixed bag ranging from neighborhood types to scruffy cool-kids.
Worst Pizza You'll Ever Have – You've got to be kidding me. Best pizza you've ever had? Really? This is some of the worst damn pizza in the freaking universe. It takes forever to get a slice and when you do it tastes like sloppy cardboard drano. Not to mention it's overpriced. 1'd. It's not even pizza.
Best Pizza in Atlanta. – The pizza is the best I've ever had. When I drive from Philadelphia to visit family in Atlanta, I always stop in Grant Central and get a pie and a Guinness.
Great Pizza – If you're from the Northeast, ask them to make the pizza thin for you. Amazing pizza and sauce. Not big bready slabs like most places in Atlanta. The place is austere, but the staff are great and it's a great place to eat before going out in EAV.
below average pizza – I went to get take out. First thing is they got my order wrong but of course I didnt notice this until I got home. The pizza was ok, but I've had better. They really dont put that much of each topping on the pizza. If I'm in the neighborhood and want some pizza while bar hopping I'd go here again but I definitely would not go out of my way or make the 1 mile drive from my house specifically to come here again.
Great Pizza – The pizza is great but I would probably get take out...the restaurant is a little bare, not bad just not exciting. But the food is great. The crusts are hand tossed and very good. The portions are great and they don't skimp on the toppings.
super-duper – the pizza is awesome and always fresh. the prices are really good so over indulging is fine. i love the setting in east atlanta. There's a nice rocker-vibe going on.
