Great NY style pizza with a perfect crust. Thin, crispy on the bottom, but still very tender. Simple, but wonderful. Worth it, even in the capital of BBQ!

We went to Home Slice after hitting a few bars to check out live music. We ordered two salads and a #6 medium pizza. Everything was delicious. The place is a little dark at night but we didn't really find this to be an issue.

A group of us ate here on Easter Sunday and the place was packed. We had to wait about 30 minutes for a table, but it was worth the wait. It was noisy, with great music playing, and our waitress was very efficient and pleasant. I lived in New York for awhile, so I am familiar with some great pizza,... More

Best for late night munchies! Must be included when going downtown and working up an appetite from walking around 6th street! Fun crowd, good pizza and totally Austin!

This is as New York as pizza gets in Austin. The staff actually makes a yearly pilgrimage to Brooklyn to learn from the zen masters of pizza. Fun atmosphere, everything on the menu is amazing, and Phil Korshak's cheesecake is a gamechanger. Get there early to avoid the crowds, and check out the subway tile portraits of famous New Yorkers... More

I hardly ever think restaurants with hour+ waits are worth it, but Home Slice is one of my few exceptions- always great service and amazing pizza!

Look, people like to disagree on this subject, but I've never steered anyone wrong as far as food goes and this is no different. Homeslice is in a great area of town where you can walk up and down Congress shopping and eating, but if I'm down in that area it's almost always to eat here. I can't speak to... More

Homeslice can be smelled from a couple blocks away on Congress. We headed to Home Slice after watching the bats and the restaurant was PACKED with an 1.5 hour wait so we decided to head next door to the "to-go" location. Wait wasn't too long, and once we ordered the pizZa came out quick because we ordered pizza by the... More

Being a native New Yorker it is difficult to find excellent New York pizza. I am told it is about the water. Walked from Congress and 5th area and enjoyed the mile and half walk across the bridge and into the Austin vibrant city scene. The pizza was crisp and an excellent balance of cheese and enough red sauce for... More
