Something about being surrounded by extremely high electromagnetic fields just makes pizza taste better. Fellini’s Pizza at the corner of Roswell Rd. and Wieuca is located just around the corner from an electric substation and has a 100′, densely populated cell tower in the rear parking lot – so as pizza dives go, this place is a veritable microwave oven.
Understand, this is not a deterrent to me. I cut my teeth in radio at an early age and have spent more than a few hours sitting next to broadcast transmitters and even climbing live antenna towers. I’ve had my fair share of RF burns and shocks – hell, I’ve even been buzzed by lightning.
So what? Exactly. The operative words here are “dive”, “pizza”, “good”. I’m not a food snob (except about barbecue – don’t get me started. Oh, and about authentic Asian food. And any about any authentic ethnic food. Fine – I’m a frickin’ food snob). Like many, I bemoan the demise of Rocky’s Brick Oven Pizza (and many will disagree), and I’m sure there is probably good wood-fired pizza elsewhere in Atlanta (and many will disagree), but pizza is usually a last minute decision for me and I’m too lazy to go looking for it. Fellini’s crust isn’t paper-thin, but I like it. Just chewy enough, without pulling your teeth out. For a home-grown chain, I think they do a good job (and many will disagree).
As I’m sure most of you disagree, feel free to chime in with your opinions, suggestion and vitriol.
Yes, they were open and I was not the only person there – it was 4:45 in the afternoon…
