Central Austin’s long wait for some of the best New York-style pizza in Texas is almost over.
Home Slice Pizza announced this morning that it would officially open its 501 E. 53rd St. location to the public on May 30. As previously reported, in addition to the menu items at the original location, the new Home Slice will serve square Sicilian-style pizza every night, along with Buffalo wings (co-founder Jen Strickland is a Western New York native) and a full bar. There is also ample parking, as anyone who has passed by the location has seen. Home Slice will offer dine-in and take-out service (512-707-7437) and be open Sunday and Monday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., Wednesday and Thursday from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to midnight.
While the restaurant won’t officially open until the end of May, the restaurant today started soft-open service, meaning the restaurant is open with limited seating and limited take-out as they perfect service in their new kitchen.
