My boyfriend and I decided to check this place out last night, since Homeslice was going to be yet another half hour wait. When we got there, we were the only customers, and when we left, there was only one other guy eating. There's not too much in the way of ambiance, but you can tell that they've tried to spruce things up Austin style with some funky painted tables. The service was nice, but far from "full service." Anytime we had to speak to an employee or they spoke to us, it was over a counter. Even though we were the only customers in there, they yelled my name out (even though it's a tiny restaurant) each time our food was ready so that we could pick it up from the counter. For a $25 pizza and salad on a slow night, I'd think they could go the extra mile and bring it to our table. When I asked for a to-go box, the guy gave me a used box, so I just grabbed a new one myself. We ordered the small caesar salad and a medium Margherita pizza with pepperoni and ground beef. The salad was huge for $4 and tasted pretty good. It was drowning in dressing, but it was still pretty good. The croutons tasted very crispy and fresh too. The pizza was OK, but it was nothing to write home about. If you like a VERY CRUNCHY crust, then this is the place for you. I love crunchy, but I think they do use cornmeal in their crust which makes it kind of stone-like. There was plenty of pepperoni on the pizza, but the ground beef was very sparse and in small, black crumbs. It looked strange. Again, nice service, but...
Can pizza really be THIS good? I cannot tell you how good their pizza is - it is pizza I would fight someone over, OK? If I got a pie to go and got back to my hut and some masked assailant approached me for my pizza, I would literally fight him (or her! Rhonda Rousey UFC Champ!) for it. I am a p…

The 35th Street locations is closed, but one in Westlake is great. 3638 Bee Caves Rd. Best pizza in town by far. Live music on weekends. Friendly staff. A great place to bring the family. There is a play scape for the kids.
19. Miltos Pizza Pub
Milto's serves up the best gyro's in town. Besides Greek, they also offer a nice selection of Italian selections, including mighty fine pizza (the al fredo pizza is phenomenal).\r \r Do not miss the $5 & $7 lunch special (yes, you read that right - a measly seven bucks gets you a salad and en…
Great Pizza. Great Staff. Great Atmosphere. It doesn't matter if you want thin or deep dish pizza Mangia is the only place in Austin to go. Not in the mood for pizza? Don't worry Mangia has one of the best meatball subs in town. Try it and you will thank me later. Check out their menu and y…
Nice burn on the crust: the margherita pizza was delicious, as was the cheese board starter. Get a reservation before showing up evenings: Peroni on tap if you're not a wine drinker. Oh, bring a flashlight too, way too dark at night.
Everyone has an opinion about food, but you got to go to the authorities to separate quality from mere preference. Here's my pedigree --- I grew up in North Jersey, the land of Tony Soprano and generations of working class Italians. I moved to NYC when I was a young man. Everyone knows that NYC is the homeland of pizza. They don't make pizza in Italy, or if they do, they're copying pizza from NY. NYC is the true origin of pizza. As any New Yoker can tell you, 90% of the flavor comes from the century old brick ovens that are covered in soot and char and have the special aroma that can't be reproduced. That said, Yaghi's reproduces it as best as could possibly be expected. I moved here 5 years ago from Manhattan and they're the ONLY place I'll order from. Everyone else has SOMETHING wrong. Too much or too little cheese, too doughy or too dry a crust, etc. Yaghi's nails it on the crust and they are VERY generous with toppings. If you really want a good time, try the gyro pizza -- it's one of those weird hybrids that you'd usually only find in NYC, but Yaghi's has the guts to put it out there in the heart of Texas!
Who would have guessed, the combination of pizza and (high quality) beer makes for a good time. Ever since attending their pre-release party, Pinthouse Pizza has delivered on a quality experience. Apparently, I'm not the only one that thinks so, crowds are oftentimes deep, regardless of the day of the week, and additional brewing capacity was recently added to ensure that the house craft beer will remain well stocked. Kudos to the Pinthouse team for listening to feedback, even constructive feedback - from the ordering system to canceling some of the noise (from all those people), progressing always seems to be forward here. An expansive, and always changing, set of taps pouring some of the best craft beer along with a comfort food genre that's hard to argue with will keep me coming back.
We have had to opportunity to have enjoyed our food at this establishment many times. The food has been really good. We have tried dishes from Pizza to Fish or Steak. The one issue we have with this place is the lack of supervision from parents that allow their kids to run the establishment like wild cattle. We have dined inside and outside and it does not matter what area you dine at. The kids run the establishment. A word of caution to the owners; if you don't designate an area for these families, you will not see diners and drinkers like us at your establishment any more. We will just walk next door to the wine bar. Recommend this eatery only if it is a school night and it is around 8:00 p.m.
Like many pizza places, the atmosphere, serivce and character will bring me back to Home Slice everytime. I'm sure there are some who will say this is the best NY style pizza outside of NY but I'm too picky to go that far. The pizza is good but not out of this world and same for the salads. Overall, it's a decent NY-style stand-in so far west. What really draws the crowds is the cool vibe and cozy atmosphere. I'm not local so I only eat here when I'm passing through on business or pleasure but it's always packed so I usually find a spot for two at the bar which is the best place to sit to see all the action anyway.
I walked into Gatti's about an hour or more ago with my husband to order our favorite (Large pan pizza w/pepperoni,italian sausage and bell peppers. We hadn't called the order in so we sat and waited on it. Just a while ago back at the apartment I couldn't find my cell phone and realized that was the only place I could have left it. Instead of calling my husband suggested we'd just drive back. I asked if they'd seen a cell phone on the bench and the nice young lady handed me my cell phone and said she knew what it was like! I told her I was very thankful. Mr. Gatti's has a for sure happy customer! Thank you all!
Can pizza really be THIS good? I cannot tell you how good their pizza is - it is pizza I would fight someone over, OK? If I got a pie to go and got back to my hut and some masked assailant approached me for my pizza, I would literally fight him (or her! Rhonda Rousey UFC Champ!) for it. I am a pretty good sized fella, and am not afraid to defend good pizza. Now if I had say an Austin Pizza or Dominos Pizza, I would surrender it without even a whimper. But that will never happen because I do not eat sucky pizza - when I feed I feed on the BEST: Salvation. Get the clam pie - & don't be a wuss!
We LOVE promise pizza. It's my hands down favorite pizza place in the Austin area. They use natural and organic ingredients, and they have gluten free options! My favorite pizza there is the lone star - pepperoni and veggies, and their cinnamon knots are super yummy (they don't really eat well as leftovers, so eat them fresh!). Salad is great too. AND, they have Blue Sky and other cane sugar sodas - huge bonus to me!! They deliver but do charge a few bucks for it. My house is out of their delivery zone, but the manager said if they're not at peak time, they would still deliver to me. Thanks!
I have eaten at Hoboken Pie a few times so far. I live in CA, and was staying at the Sheraton downtown. The guy at the front desk highly recommended Hoboken Pie for great pizza. I'm in NJ periodically, so I have eaten plenty of NJ style pizza. The pizza at Hoboken Pie is sooooo much better than anything I have eaten in NJ. Very thin, crispy crust, not too much cheese, and the flavor of the sauce is perfect!! I recommend the Hawaiian and Margherita pizzas too!!! If you like thick crust, greasy pizza, go somewhere else. I'll eat your share the next time I'm in Austin!
