    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.

    Watch the guys sling endless amounts of pizza at the counter @homeslice!

    Sit at the bar (first come, first served) and watch the pizza pros ply their trade. It's like a free show while you eat!

    Cole H · July 11, 2009

    Try the margherita pizza and the garlic knots. Get a Shiner Bock on draft.

    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.

    The white pie is the best pizza in Austin, which is why it’s on our list of The Tastes That Make the City: Austin. Read more

    You gotta go here. This is the best pizza I have ever eaten. Do it, go with plenty of time because it is always packed.

    Jean Nicolas · March 27, 2010

    Go to Home Slice and order the Garlic Knots!

    Don't miss the ping pong table outside for a good way to kill wait time.

    Skip the crowd. Call your order in and pick it up at the window. Eat anywhere you want.

    The pepperoni and mushroom is heavenly! This is some top notch pizza! The vibe is really sick too! I found them during SXSW on my new supper app: http://supper.mx/places/home-slice-pizza-austin/

    Awesome pizza. Don't pass this place up if you're in south Austin. Always crowded.

    “Home Slice easily has the best pies in town,” says Blythe Jewell of the Kidding Around Austin blog. “It’s just off of S. Congress, and all the hipsters flock there".

    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

    Come hungry. Order a cheap beer. Bring good friends. Enjoy.

    Don't go on Fri. unless you are prepared to wait at least 30-45 min. to sit down. FAIL

    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.

    Additional parking for Home Slice around the corner at Congress Ave. Baptist Church. You're welcome.

    Don't let the wait time discourage you; the pizza is well worth it. If you're really pressed for time, hit up More Homeslice next door for takeaway slices and salads, oh and rice crispy treats!

    The Best Pizza I have ever tasted... I drive all the way from Brownsville Texas just for to eat this pizza!

    Andrew Moncada · March 23, 2011
  • Tammy G.

    Cute back patio & bar (to cool your heels when there's a wait). Try the Sausage, Ricotta & Red Pepper pizza. Or if you're feelin veg: White Pie w Spinach, Garlic, Ollive Oil, Ricotta & Mozzarella.

    Tammy Gordon · March 10, 2011

    Try the Meat Calzone with pepperoni & sausage that is stuffed with ricotta cheese and mozzarella and served with a side of marinara sauce.

    One of the best pizza places in Austin. It may sound weird but the eggplant pizza is excellent.

    Park at the Baptist Church next door.

    Slices are now available almost all the time next door @ More Homeslice...but if you have time spring for the whole pie! Best pizza leftovers ever!

    For take out often you can play "paper, rock, scissors" for 10% off. Always shoot scissors, as they almost always shoot paper!

    Order the margherita pizza and don't forget to pick up one of the HUGE rice krispie treats for dessert. The pear gorgonzola salad is awesome too!

    Be prepared to wait, though this could be fun. If you're in a rush, order pizza from next door. Try the white clam pizza with tomatoes. Awesome. Read more
