Good Pizza, Cool Place, Bad Service, NOT kid friendly – Rounders has great pizza and a layed back cool atmosphere, it's an old Austin house and the dining area is the living room. The pizza crust is crisp and I like the flavor. Their salads are pretty good too. Although the pizza is good and we keep going back the service is awful. Once you get a drink forget about a refill unless it's beer because they make more money and they wait staff is not friendly. One more thing, this is not a kid friendly place. We take our kids at least every other friday night and are usually the only people with kids. They love the table video games and arcade games but the restaurant has signs everywhere that say watch your kids and no chairs at video games. What kind of place would have games and not allow kids to play them. Come on! Either let kids play the games or get rid of them!
All around goodness – All the staff I have encountered at Rounder's have been friendly and helpful. They don't talk much but they defiantly are not rude or mean. I have always found a place to park behind rounders and to the right. The tow signs specify that the parking is for Rounder's guests. The dinner salad is really good. The pizza is really good (especially if you get sun-dried tomatoes on it). One time they burned something... not the pizza... they got us a new one in plenty of time and gave us two free desserts. I think it is one of the best places to get pizza.
Poor service;almost non-existent delivery – The pizza is average; if you want to be in a bad mood for the rest of the evening because of some of the worst service in Austin--eat here. Last time I tried to get a pizza delivered they said they "might" be able to get me the pizza within 2 hours. AVOID THIS PLACE UNTIL THE MANAGEMENT CHANGES. It is comical that so many reviews on this page suggest: Great NY PIZZA!!!!; could these be employees or friends of the owner?
What a great surprise – Mangia is still king, but if you'd like something a little different with some east coast influence, try out Rounders. I can't believe I've been in Austin so long without tasting it. The place definitely has a unique atmosphere for a pizza place - dark, quiet, cozy, putting the spotlight on the pizza (which is terrific). I'd put Rounders in a tie with Mangia for best in Austin. They complement each other very well.
Way over rated – Service was actually pretty good, not like other reviews. But the pizza was the problem.
It took a while to come to the table and when it did it was way over cooked. The crust
had the texture of cardboard. The toppings were slight and starting to burn. Would not
reccommend this pizza. Sorry, no return visit from me.
Excellent pizza with love – Every pizza I have had from Rounders has had the freshes ingreadients. You can tell they pay close attention to detial. The crust is always the perfetctly crisp. Garlic Knots are a must have. Excellent presentation on serving stile. Pizza trays are set on racks above the tables surface.
YUM!!! – The best pizza in town...as good as you might find in Brooklyn. Great crust, sauce, and toppings.
Just like NY! – I was a die hard fan of Austin's Pizza, but after trying Rounders, I've changed allegience. This is the best pizza in town. If you like New York Style pizza, you must try it. The crust is perfect, the sauce not too sweet and they don't hold back on the toppings. If only there were a location in North Austin.... I'd be in heaven.
great food awful service – The pizza was great but the servers were downright horrible....got our order mixed up and then didn't do much to try to remedy the situation....we ended up eating another table's pizza (luckily we were ok with the toppings) because ours had already been served to the wrong table.
great pizza,great service!!!! – I was in Austin for SXSW,and wanted to eat ,but didn't want to astray to far from sixth.So decided to drive down sixth,and came across this pizzaria called rounders.So i decided to go in and see what it was all about.The service was very nice,didn't have to wait long at all,and the pizza was delicious!I highly recommend this place to anyone wanting a true authenic New York Style pizza!
