    Amazing pizza here! Via 313 is a small shack next to a bar. Order your pizza, take a number and head in for a drink. This is a Detroit style pizza, the crispy thick crust is unbelievably delicious!

    Great Detroit-style pizza (deep dish, baked in actual auto-part pans). Friendly service and a willingness to deliver into anchor bar Violet Crown Social Club doesn't hurt either. [Eater 38 Member]

    Totally legit Detroit-style pizza. Great crisp strip of cheese along the edge. If you're drunk and/or a BIG eater, 1 pizza will fill you. If you're sober and/or little, you could probably split a pie.

    I used to eat here every week, but recently it's gotten really popular and waiting time has gone up to 1 - 1.5 hours!! If you do go, I really recommend the Cadillac and the Herbivore.

    Slices of cheese or pepperoni available and less wait; but go for the whole pie- takes 15 min and you'll thank yourself later. Patience is a virtue :) #TheRocketFTW

    Detroit natives Zane and Brandon Hunt have thankfully introduced Austin to the wonders of Motor City-style pizza. We are officially addicted. You can't lose with the double-pepperoni "Detroiter."

    Best gluten-free pizza in town. The crust is thick, chewy, and crisp. It's amazing. The pizza toppings are also quite inspired.

    Everything's good - but make sure you grab a drink from Craft Pride too. There's a bottle shop if you're on the go.

    Ask for vegan cheese for a tasty treat. They use Follow Your Heart (my favorite :-).

    A little expensive but worth it first time I had it I wasn't able to enjoy it. Second time much better its like having a personal pizza from pizza hut when u were a kid. But better!

    Great pizza. Large portions and long wait, so just be prepared and maybe split a pie with a friend.

    Love pizza. Via 313 makes pretty darn good pizza, and they do so while being eco-friendly. Love it.

    Elio's for grown ups. Appreciate the crust, but I guess just can't appreciate it all like I do a NY slice (maybe because I'm currently sober).

    What's good here? EVERYTHING. Quit being a dummy and just eat here. Oh you don't like Via 313? And you wonder why no one likes you?

    After you order, have a seat inside at Violet Crown Social Club and they'll bring out your pie to you

    This is good stuff. Normally, I don't like thick crust pizza all that much. But this is good. It's much better than Chicago style pizza.

    Good approximation of Detroit's style. Guy behind the counter changed my order for me, though. :/

    Eat here. Pizza is best in the world; and I'm from Buffalo where we have great pizza. Better than NYC style and Chicago deep dish (it's kind of like Chicago style).
