Austin's beloved New York style-pizza joint, reining proudly from its small stands on SoCo. Their chewy crust is topped with some of the most insane ingredients, like eggplant, chopped clams, and possibly narcotics. Walk right up to the window and order a big ol' slice from their daily selection.
Fave pizza spot in town. Always a wait. Always worth it. The eggplant sub is my muse.
King of Pizza – Crispy, hand-tossed dough and savory toppings please Chicago/NY/Austinites across the board. The ricotta cheese pizza is my favorite Texas memory.
GREAT pizza, wonderful server, cool atmosphere! – Went for the first time even thought I've lived in Austin almost all my life. I can't believe I never actually ate here - I've been missing out big time!
The pizzas are so fresh - perfect amount of melt in your mouth/crisp yet chewy crust in between thin and thick!
Plus, our server was helpful, knowledgable and all around a cool chick!
New York Pizza! – 2 words:
Seriously. This is the closest to legit New York Pizza you can get down here in Texas!!
If you like thin crispy cust, authentic tomato sauce, and oozing mozzerella cheese then you can't miss out on this fabulous pizza joint!
Ambiance and service are always great. Sometimes theres a wait, but if you're in a hurry head next door to their to-go building and grab a slice or a whole pizza!
Excellent Pizza but limited space and parking – My wife and I just had lunch at Home Slice on Congress and it was excellent. We had heard good things about this pizzeria and we were pleasantly surprised to find out they were justified. We ordered the #6 pizza which is on the Tried and True menu; it consisted of sausage, ricotta cheese and roasted red pepper. It was some of the best pizza in town. We also ordered salads, she getting the Pear Gorgonzola (mixed greens w/walnuts and Dijon vinaigrette) and me the Italian Chef (house salad w/antipasto topping). They even came in half sized servings so we were not too filled up. The only down side being that you have to arrive early because it gets packed and park can be atrocious on Congress, but it is well worth it.
darn goooood pizza – being from nj orginally, this pizza holds up to what Ive come to expect from great pizza. I love this place!!!
I love this place! – Such a good spot at the epicenter of South Congress...Awesome vibe....Great food...Best pizza in Austin!
Homeslice Pizza – A lovely African American lady was totally ignored while the white patrons were taken care of & waited on appropriately. Austin doesn't have room for this sort of attitude & behavior. For shame.
Citysearch Editorial Review – Home Slice serves up New York-style thin crust pizza in a fun, urban atmosphere, with local hipsters and office workers crowding the colorful booths. Those who want to view the pizza-making first-hand sit at the crimson-hued counter, amidst the attractive, young, hip servers that bustle as if they're hosting a dinner party at their home. The tasty hand-thrown pies come in several varieties, from the traditional margherita to the outrageous white clam pie. Order by-the-slice, especially if you're on-the-go, or for the full experience, order a full pie and enjoy it on-site. Customize your own pizza from a long list of traditional (artichoke hearts, mushrooms, pepperoni) and more edgy (fried clams, fried eggplant, Kalamata olives) toppings. Family style salads come in a large bowl and are plenty for four. Made-to-order subs, salads and calzones also grace the menu. The atmosphere is dark enough for a date, yet casual enough for families. Something to consider: for some reason, the takeout pizza slices from the front service window don't stack up to the quality of the dine-in pies, so take note.
