Best Pizza in Austin

I've been more than once and try to find non-peak hours because they are very busy. They do have a takeout building next to the restaurant, so that's nice. Their pizza is my favorite in Austin without a doubt. Don't eat on the patio when the bees are out though, they made my last dining experience... read more

Tried four different pizzas here last night with friends and they were pretty decent. Highlight was pepperoni. I'd give the white cheese pizza with spinach a miss. It had no flavour and we were all adding Parmesan and salt and pepper to improve the taste. Margherita was pretty good. All in all a convenient pizza venue but not one id... More

You walk in and its dark and I wondered if it would be any good. The place was crowded, the wait was an hour, but they said we could go to the patio and there we could get drinks, etc. while we waited. So we did, the wait did not feel so long, we drank a beer/lemonade and it was... More

I got here every time I find myself in Austin! the wait was a bit longer than I'm used to but it is always worth it! Their pizza is always fresh and you can never go wrong with a regular pepperoni. House salad is fresh and delicious and their garlic knots are soooo good!!

It was worth the trip to Austin. It was busy, but we were seated in less than 10 minutes. The pizza was delicious (I was pleasantly surprised being raised on New Haven pizza).

If they did not advertise as being NY style then I might give it 3.5 dots (still just 3 dots in effect). It is average pizza, good but average. The cornmeal on the crust is something no classic NY pizza joint would ever do, that was the first problem. The second is the overall flavor/texture that does not taste like... More

I know people rave about this place, but I just didn't get it. I have to admit, I wasn't that hungry, but I don't think that should matter. The service was awesome, location is great, the seating is cute. I just wish the pizza lived up to what everyone talks about. I have had NYC pizza, more than I can... More

That pizza was better than what I've had in the east coast, darn tasty! Crisp delicious crust, yet chewy, amazing! Highly recommend grabing a pie and a brew if you're in the area. Very friendly and helpful guys working the counter too.

It's your average new York style pizza, that's is made fast and fresh with a to go window. I didn't think it was anything too special.
