The food here is just awesome. Very big portions but the pizza is so nice I don't think I'll mind eating it for the next two days! The atmosphere here is fantastic and the service is great. I definitely want to visit again before I leave Austin.

Two restaurants next to each other: one for eat in and one for slices. The slices were excellent: thin crust with lots of cheese.

This is damned good pizza. New York inspired. If you want the real thing - get on a plane. If you want a reminder of how good pizza can be - go to Home Slice. Don't drown it in toppings. Enjoy it in its simplicity. Great folks and good pie.

I've never had worse pizzas in my life! It's like eating a loaf of bread topped with tomato and cheese - disgusting!

Best pizza on South Congress - the pizza is very good and the location is fantastic right in the heart of South Congress. A great place to stop in for a bite between shopping and otherwise enjoying the area

This place serves hot pizza and chilled beer in a very warmth atmosphere. I really loved the backyard with its very creative fence and sitting areas! I went three times during my two visits to Austin and can say that anything on the menu tastes awesome! The red sauce is to die for, and so are the meats! Pair it... More

After coming to Austin for the F1 and being continually soaked we were tired and hungry. This was just the answer. Great NY slices. My buddy and I worked at pizza restaurants for many years in our youth and consider ourselves experts and we were both raving.

We were told to eat here by a resident of Austin and are glad we did. The pizza crust is perfect and the pizza in general awesome. This is a must when in Austin. Nothing fancy. Just good pizza.
