Watch, for a free slice

slice.gifThe mysterious storefront where Aqua used to be, at 1415 South Congress, now boasts a Home Slice Pizza sign. The owners say they’ve perfected New York pizza for Austin. The website says that there’ll be submarines as well. Will they bake their own sub rolls? It’s just fine, no matter what, to have sold-by-the-slice pizza, either to walk away with or to enjoy as a sitdown with some beer. The owners, though one’s from New York State originally, are long-time Austinites. View the Queen of Pies animation and get a coupon to exchange for a free slice of pizza. Word was that Home Slice was to open last night. I hope to confirm this, coupon in hand, this evening.

    I noticed their sign the other day. Perhaps we’ll check it out this weekend. I’m also curious about Doc’s, another new South Congress eatery. It seems like that place is packed every time I pass it.

    Doc’s is good. Pub grub, etc. with a good atmosphere and a full bar. Much needed component to that stretch of Congress.

    Looking forward to Home Slice. Up to now, you had to go to Saccone’s for good New York pizza.

    I live 2 mins from Home Slice so I was really looking forward to its opening. So, a bunch of us went last week and sadly, we all agreed that it was neither good nor bad, but definitely a letdown. I’ll chalk this up to only being open a bit and will give them a chance in a month or two. In the meantime me and friends shall stick with Rounders.

    And I never did get my promised free slice coupon either, which was perplexing.

    Hello all,

    ***Please note that the free slice offer has ended.****

    Ultradave – We would love to know what you found disappointing about your experience. We are working very hard to ensure that all of our customers have a great time at Home Slice, but it’s impossible to be 100% on our game, 100% of the time.

    Re: the coupon, you should have received that coupon via email. We can’t guarantee that your spam filter didn’t block it. If you let me know your email address, I’ll be happy to check the database and see if I can locate your coupon.

    Thanks for stopping by, Joseph.

    I’m really looking forward to trying you guys out. So, the coupons aren’t available on the site anymore, but does that mean that if we printed one out a week or so ago and haven’t used it, we’ve missed our chance and you won’t accept it?

    Just curious.

    My pleasure. No it *definitely* does not mean that. We will honor every one we issued. It just means we aren’t issuing more.

    Thanks for clarifying.

    I ate there Friday night with my sister and a friend. I couldn’t find the coupon that night, but I’ll track that sucker down.

    Good stuff. We had a couple of pitchers of Fireman’s #4, a greek salad (family-style) and a medium pepperoni and mushroom. I liked the warm bread knots that came with the salad. All good stuff. The crust was excellent. I’ll have to try the Margherita or the White Pie next.

    So I finally got around to redeeming my coupon and getting my free slice yesterday. I was impressed – I didn’t think anyone could beat Austin Pizza’s crust, but Home Slice succeeded. The service seemed slow, considering it took them more than ten minutes to take my order, warm the pizza and serve it when I was the only person in line… Aside from that, the pizza was good and I look forward to trying the greek salad next time.
