It was the best pizza I had had for awhile! Thin crust! Fresh ingredients! The service was excellent! We sat in the back & had a great time!

This is such a popular place that you're likely to have to wait. But there's a nice patio out back, with a bar, ping-pong table etc. where you can quite happily wait your turn, and the tracking system works. Pizzas are good and huge - you can take away anything you can't eat and it re-heats fine. Closed Tuesdays.

Be prepared to wait for the best pizza Austin has to offer! Fresh and yummy and some of the freshest salad around! I haven't had a bad experience here ever! I've been 10-15 times in 3 years. South Congress is FUN and HSP is a "not to miss" on my list when friends/family visit.

My wife and I went back on Sunday, and we found the pizza just like we left it year ago...a mouthful of awesome flavor! Fresh cheese and other ingredients, crispy crust, and the true spirit of Austin. Add a Greek salad and beer to complete the experience. Certainly worth the wait.

Pizza lovers must visit. Stop by while in the SoCo district. Great local vibe with friendly service. Place your order, grab a favorite beverage, sit back, relax, and enjoy the local flavor of Austin. Pizza was tasty. Fresh ingredients, perfectly browned crust, and served piping hot. Don't miss Home Slice when in Austin.

Stopped here for slices at lunch time. Kids were hot and tired and crabby, but everyone perked up after sitting inside in the A/C and having some delicious Home Slice pizza. Slices were big (NY style), sauce was tangy, and atmosphere was cool. This is a well-conceived and well-executed operation. Thumbs up.

Great backyard with ping pong, misters and fans to wait for a table to become available in the cool inside. Wait staff is excellent. The Sicilian Pizza is the best I have ever had. Added pepperoni. Cozy, crazy place. We all enjoyed it.

I'm not sure if this is the best pizza in Austin, but it is very good. The staff is great, especially with kids. The whole experience has been consistently great. Kids can get a ball of dough to eat/play with. Affordable drinks. Very busy.

Ok folks..... You've tried the rest you might as well settle for the best ....right NOW! I've eaten a lot of pizza in my life, and I tell you what, this will be the best pizza you have ever had in your entire life. I would even order just a plain cheese slice..... Then you also get one with pepperoni.... More

This is what you wish your college pizza place was like. The pizza is terrific and the portions and prices are fair. Everyone was super-friendly, from the front door to the wait staff. As an added bonus, it was very family friendly. Highly recommended.

Thank Daniel R
