Gives NYC and Chicago a run for their money. The white pizza with spinach is my personal fave but the calzones and salads are also excellent choices. The Outdoor dining is cute and pet friendly. More Home Slice by the slice is next door if you need some pizza on the go. Park at the church and be ready to wait in line. Don't forget a rice crispie treat for dessert!

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!

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!

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.
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.
If Homeslice doesn't serve the best pizza in Austin, it certainly is in the top 5. With an awesome location on S. Congress Avenue, Homeslice is as well known for it's lines as for its delicious pizza. However, they will soon be opening up a location next door with lovely pizza by the slice at all hours and I also recommend their amazing calzones, sandwiches, and rice krispie treats for dessert. Yum!

Moved down from NYC in 05 and after months of complaining about horrible pizza, my buddy took me here to shut me up. I made it a point to visit once a week until I moved to SA, but always find time while I'm in town. Don't even acknowledge the bad reviews, those people were expecting CC's and got the real deal, they just weren't ready for it !

From the outside it just looks like a normal pizza joint with a cool name, but once you walk in side it's suprisingly hip, with dim lighting, cool wall fixtures and modern seating areas. We expected to pop in and get a greasy slice on a paper plate Wednesday night. We ended up waiting 20 minutes because this place was hoppin! The host was kind enough to get us a glass of wine while we waited. The pizza was delicious, no doubt about it. I'm so pleased to have Home Slice down the street.

I'm loving this establishment. I'd have to agree with lang77 that some (or just one) of the servers have attitude but overall I've had pleasant accounts with most of the staff. If you visit often enough as my fam and I do then they start to know you by name and nix the attitude if they know you have a good attitude yourself. The pizza is great and greek salad is on par! This place is local for me so returning is a definite 'yes'!

The pizza is fantastic. Make sure you get a freshly made pie to really do Home Slice justice. While the individual slices are good, the fresh baked pie is waaay better. If you like big slices of pizza baked with a nice thin NY-Style crust, Home Slice is your place. I go here often and the food is always tasty and the wait staff is good. Bartender dude with the crazy hair is super nice. If you don't like Home Slice you are probably a communist.

Overall, I think the Pizza is decent. My biggest complaint is the horrible and rude service. Whether you try to eat inside or outside expect poor service, extremely long waits, and a smug hipster attitude telling you to go elsewhere if you don't like it. If you are hoping to walk by and grab a slice from the window expect the same treatment. I have waited 25 plus minutes for a slice and witnessed a customer being yelled by the staff for inquiring about his order after 30 minutes. I no longer go to Home Slice and would recommend others do the same.
