“Best Pizza in Austin”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

This place rocks! The pizza is absolutely fantastic and the service is always great. Although it can get pretty busy, especially on the weekend, it is well worth the wait! They have a great outdoor patio that you can sit out and enjoy a cocktail or beer while you wait.

A little tip if you don't want to wait and don't mind eating at the bar. The bar is always first come first serve, so just keep an eye out for someone looking to finish up there meal and either politely ask if you can have their seat when they are finished or just stand nearby to get their seat as soon as they are finished.

You simply will not be disappointed with this place!

“Great pizza”
Reviewed February 2, 2013

Have never been disappointed in this place. The pizza is good and is a great value. The wait isn't bad and the service is fast.

“Great Slice of NY in the middle of Texas”
Reviewed January 29, 2013 via mobile

Great crust on the pizza, which I am particularly picky about, cooked perfectly. The staff was very attentive and friendly, even though at the time of my visit was during peak business hours at night. Great place to go for Great food at a reasonable price. It's obvious once you eat there why it is a recommended place for pizza in the Austin area.

“SRSLY? Better than NY Style Pizza from NY!”
Reviewed January 29, 2013 via mobile

Home Slice pizza is the third ingredient in a perfect Austin summer day--take a dip in Barton Springs, chow down on a slice (or 3) of cheese, then head to Sugar Mama's Bakery to dive into the best cupcakes in town. Believe me when I tell you : I've had many samples of what was supposed to be the BEST pizza in NY, and all I could think was "it's still not as good as Home Slice!" The crust is thin and crispy, the sauce perfectly balanced, and the freakin cheese will blow your mind! I don't even get any toppings, I love the perfectly purist slice of cheese every time. Pair with their house salad, and a bottled root beer and you too will experience the nirvana of Home Slice Pizza! My only caveat: just know that the inside dining room can get a little loud, but go for a booth and the cozy factor rises; sometimes there's a long wait but it's worth it. Also, check out the back patio when outside temps dip below 80.

“Best Pizza on South Congress”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

There is a reason why there is always a line here. It is that good. It is fresh and the herbs they use really make the pizza.
