Of course, pizza is something that usually everyone can agree on, but wouldn’t it be nice to know where some of the best pizza places are in the area? Well, I have you covered. Here are my top five picks for the best pizza joints in Blacksburg, Va.
- Avellino’s – 1440 S. Main St. STE 110 Blacksburg, VA 24060
Avellino’s restaurant overall is rather good. They have a nice variety of food ranging from pastas, to pizza, to burgers to seafood. The food can tend to be pricey, but you are paying for quality food. The pizza is particularly good and they have a good amount of choices. My personal favorite pizza there the ‘White Pizza’ which has ricotta and mozzarella cheese only.
- Mellow Mushroom – 207 S Main St, Blacksburg, VA 24060
Although Mellow Mushroom is a ‘chain’ restaurant, it definitely makes the cut for best pizza joints. They have a wide variety of pizza choices along with other aspects like calzones or sandwiches. Price wise, they are rather decent. They have many pizzas recipes to choose, and all are pretty great.
- PK’s Bar and Grill – 432 N Main St B, Blacksburg, VA 24060
PK’s is definitely is one of my most recommended, which is why it falls in the top three. They have so many great elements when you go in-person and delivery is usually quick. Their pizza is amazing there, especially the buffalo chicken pizza. It’s something I get every time I go. Along with their great pizza, they have awesome deals. There is a day where you can flip a coin for a free pizza, if you call it right.
- The Beast of Blacksburg – 860 University City Blvd # 107, Blacksburg, VA 24060
The Beast is the type of place that does not disappoint. Hands down, one of the quickest deliveries that will get you your pizza there and tasting like it just came out of the oven. It is one of the more expensive places, but as mentioned, you won’t be disappointed with their pizza. Their white sauce pizzas are to die for. Every pizza I have had is simply delicious.
- Benny Marzano’s – 110 Draper Rd NW, Blacksburg, VA 24060
Benny’s pizza is my most favorite college town pizza. Not only is the pizza great and the slices huge, it’s also very affordable. It is around $5 for a slice alone. I do know that buying a whole pizza is rather expensive, however, is a great way to split with a group of friends. Benny’s pizza is very popular among Virginia Tech students, especially on late nights. They are open most nights until 3 a.m. for students to swing by for pizza or for delivery.
