One of the major fixtures of Clayton Street, Transmet as it??s commonly known, is a two-story contemporary and urban pizza joint and more. Beyond having one of the best grilled chicken Caesar salads in the state, the roasted potatoes, focaccia, bruchetta and fresh made special lasagnas dare to take the cake. Upstairs, the dark brown bar houses more tables and a private event space ?? thought he build-your-own-bloody-mary bar is the main attraction on Sunday mornings. Make sure to check out the local art on the walls while you stand in line for counter service and snag a spot on the covered patio outside if you can.

Pros: Great Caesar salad / canβ??t beat the location

Cons: During peak hours, the line to order creeps super-slow

The staff was rude and stuck up. The setting is very hippie and where hippie snobs would hang out. It seems that people that don't really know who they are would go to a place like this. Trying to be cool but are really stuck up snotty hippie women in their 30's. The food was over priced and wasn't good. Sorry I had an awful time and would not waste my time or money on this place. Well, unless you are a snob/ hippie too. I had heard some good things about this place and was excited to finally be going to be let down and had an awful time. There are tons of other places to go in Athens...don't start your evening etc. off to a bad start with this awful place!

Excellent food, great service with a waiter who actually talks to you and is helpful, not dragging his feet and/or sneering at you. Totally different experience than when you go see those tired tired whinesters downtown. Good prices, too.

If you?re looking for the best blackened tofu in town and cold pitchers of PBR, search no further. Transmetropolitan boasts a unique blend of Italian and American cuisine from large calzones stuffed with your favorite pizza toppings to portabella paninis and potato soup. Draft beer is cheap and cold but if you?re craving a cocktail, the upstairs has a full bar in addition to extra seating, some of which overlooks downtown. Perching outside in cafe style comfort is an option, and you?re more than welcome to enjoy a smoke and bring your pooch. My favorite is the build your own salad! It?s reasonably priced, around $7, and you can load it high with fresh veggies and feta cheese. A jukebox in the corner assures a variety of tunes and although the staff is comprised of typical college-town hipsters, they keep your table clean and stay out of your way while you enjoy your meal. Order and pay at the counter when you arrive, and they?ll have your pizza to your table in ten to fifteen minutes. Serving food until 11pm on the weekends and staying open until 2am for the night owls, they offer a chic, casual, adult atmosphere for those who want to avoid the underage bars and college kid feel.

Pros: Chill atmosphere and tasty eats

Cons: average service

My friends like the place, so I'll go to meet with them. But each time I'm greeted (sarcasm) by a non-enthusiastic order taker to order my not-so-great food. The bruchetta is white toast with diced tomatos poured on top. If you go up to the bar, you will wait and wait, only to be told that the girl is the bar back and can't serve you. When you finally get to order, make sure to get two rounds!

Best bar in town. Not too Greek, not too hipster-snob. And the staff is incredibly cool.

PROS: drinks, prices, staff, regulars
CONS: occasional drunk fratties

Transmet has design your own pasta and I love their alfredo. Their pizza is a favorite of many friends, and is really easily suited to anyones tastes. Their full bar is quite poular with the red and black staff. They are a restaurant to add to the list of athens must tries.

A little bit pricey but a great location. The pizza is something you might not get at your normal pizza joint. For example, they make a great pesto pizza. They also have a full bar making it a great night spot. FYI, it is eat in and take out only, no delivery.
