    For fans of New York-style pizza, Home Slice is as close as you can get in Austin, possibly thanks to yearly staff trips to the Big Apple. You know, for research. [Eater 38 Member] Read more

    Authentic, New York-inspired pizza in Austin's super-cute South Congress neighborhood. P.S. They’re hosting a Merge Records party this year during SXSW.

    Austin's best pizza spot. Can get a little packed, but More Home Slice (next door on S. Congress) is a good option for a slice or take-out when the original location is too packed.

    Every time they've told me it's gonna be a 45 min wait, I've been sat in 5 minutes. Might just be my good luck though ;) Check do512.com to hear what SXSW plans they have going down

    Hands down the best pizza in Austin. Be prepared for a larger pizza than you might expect. A large anywhere else is a medium here.

    From the moment Home Slice opened its doors, it's been packed – and for good reason. Genuine New York-style pizza made in an independent neighborhood pizzeria, by folks who know how it's done. Read more

    There was a drunk female shouting at the home slice building. It was closed and I think she was pissed. Or she had the place confused with this "Daniel" she kept screaming. It was a little funny.
