Great place with very good pizza, salad & beer

Located in the South Congress area of Austin, Home Slice Pizza certainly deserves your attention if you are in town. The pizza is very good, the family-style salad is well-appointed and has a great, tangy dressing, and the beer is plentiful, local and cold. All of this is presented by attentive... read more

Pizza prepared exactly the way we wanted it: fresh, crisp crust with lots of toppings - this is a great pizza.

Really nice spot up in South Congress but you need to be patient to get a table c. 1 1/2 hour wait the night we went (Saturday) but to be fair all that meant was sitting out the back drinking good beer and you can always enjoy some starters to keep the wolf from the door. When the main event... More

Great Pizza! The crusts are delicious, one qualm I had was the excessive amount of topping the put on the pizza. My pizza was swimming in tomato and cheese and when I picked up a slice it all slid off. If they put a little less topping on the pizza I would have given it 5 stars, although in saying... More

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
