“Hard to go wrong- at 11pm”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2012 via mobile

Just right and just fine. Ask for the pizza to be blackened a bit. You'll thank me. Comfy, and satisfying for a quick stop and bite. Good beers.

“Great crust. .Wish they had hamburger topping”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2012

The pizza is fabulous - we had a spinach pizza and a greek salad.
The crust is what makes this pizza, I think. Homemade, light, crusty. I was horrified to see how many people around me eat only the center and leave the outer edges (the best part!)
The onions on the pizza are super thin sliced .. I don't care for onions and picked them all off, but hubby likes them.
The greek salad was surprisingly excellent.
We ate outside, and although we'd been told there was at least a 20 min wait, we waited only about 5 minutes.
DO eat outside, unless you LIKE noisy crowds.
We noticed an odd thing .. .certain portions of the outside are designated "no food area" . .you can only wait there, but not eat pizza ... due to an Austin ordinance that disallows serving food within so many feet of a residence.
But they built right up to the edges? and put out tables there? Pushing the envelope, I'd say. However, whoever 'resides' so close to such a noisy eatery is asking for it anyhow.
We've been here several times, and dine inside and outside - outside is definitely my preference if the weather permits.
They do NOT have ground beef topping . .. my fav pizza topping. . .but the food is so good, I forgive them.
Try to go during offpeak . .it's always crowded, but during rush hours, you'll have to park a LONG ways off, and you'll wait an hour or more.

“Pizza done well”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2012

Great Austin institution that lives up to the hype... Kept it simple Italian chef salad and pepperoni pizza, very good indeed. Attentive service and great view of constant pizza dough flying through the air.

“Pizza is awesome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2012

Don't expect them to deliver - it's all dine in or carry out, and for a reason. They will very directly tell you they don't want the quality of their pizza to go down riding around in a delivery car.

You can get it by the slice or the whole pie, the crust is muy bueno, and the employees are a pleasure to talk to. Definitely our favorite pizza joint.
