For generations of Emory University students, faculty and staff, Everybody’s Pizza has been that restaurant. The campus restaurant. Lots of food for a decent price, cheap drinks for those who can show the right I.D. and the kinds of oddball dishes that people cramming for finals learn to crave — such as Thai chicken pizza salad.
But just as the number of food offerings in Emory Village are on the upswing with the recent additions of Chipotle Mexican Grill and Zoës Kitchen, Everybody’s has decided to call it quits. The last day will be March 19. Owner Andy Kurlansky sent this press release:
After 41 great years in Emory Village, we are retiring from the restaurant business.
We are proud to have served some 3 million pizzas to multiple generations of Atlantans since 1971.
Here’s to all who had their first dates at Everybody’s, met their spouse at Everybody’s, or celebrated other of life’s joyous events with us.
Thanks to all in Atlanta who have been loyal fans of our pizza, and who have been guests in our “home.”
But most of all, we thank all of the wonderful folks who have worked with us throughout these 41 years,
for they have been the true heart and soul of the place.
Without their dedication and love, none of it could have happened.
