Home Slice has been the heart of quirky South Congress dining for years. This pizza place is so popular that there is even a slice-to-go window. Families can call ahead to reserve a table and pizza, but make an evening out of it by enjoying garlic knots during the wait. There is a ping-pong table in the back (and excellent people watching) for entertainment. Since we lived in NYC, we can say this one of the best in Austin and we like to stick to the “New York” way with simply ordering 1 topping. Although, if you’re into White Sauce, try their White Clam Pizza….best in the city.
Just down South Congress is Big Top. The candy selection includes popular favorites from the 1950’s to today. There is even an old fashioned soda foundation making homemade malts and floats. It is fun to spend an afternoon looking at the colorful selection of goodies while sipping on a Coke float.
Both located within 1100 ft of 1415 South Congress Avenue.
