“Just Great Pizza”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2012

This place is popular for a reason. The pizza is quality and delicious. The main restaurant is closed on Tuesdays, but there is a smaller take-out restaurant (same Home Slice) next door, and it has small areas inside and out to sit.

The pizza was pretty good and it was a good place/time to bring our 1 year old.

“Just okay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2012

After hearing so much about Home Slice, we were left disappointed. It does have a fun atmosphere which fits right into the Austin scene. If you have kids, it is a great place because they will give them dough to play with while waiting. The pizza and calzones, however, were just okay. It is good but forgettable. If you are from the east coast, it is hard to find great pizza in texas.

“NY style pizza in Austin”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2012 via mobile

Great pizza, we had a couple slices NY style on paper plates. The wait was long so we just ate at the bar. If you plan on going expect a wait or call in before you get there.

“Delicious and speedy!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2012

My sister and I ate here on a Friday afternoon around 3pm. There was absolutely no wait and we were seated immediately in the area in the back. We both got fountain sodas, split an order of garlic knots with marinara and ranch, and we each got a single slice. I got pepperoni and my sister got margherita. Everything was sooo delicious! And it came out way faster than we expected it to. The garlic knots were yummy, crispy on the outside and soft on the inside with a perfect marinara. My pepperoni slice was perfect, crispy pepperoni, a great balance of cheese to sauce, and a crust that was slightly cripsy but also still chewy. My sister gobbled her margherita slice down before I'd even gotten halfway through my slice, so I know hers was good! Our server was excellent as well. Our total was $15. Pretty darn good! All in all, I would definitely recommend stopping in for a slice. Yum!!
