The place was full at lunch time but I found a space at the counter for a slice of pizza. I had the garlic sausage and it was very good. They make the pizzas out in the open, not behind a kitchen wall which was fun to see. The staff seemed to enjoy what they were doing which is always... More

I love to sit at the counter where you can watch the pizzas being prepared and hand tossed up into the air. Great food and very entertaining.

By far the best pizza I have ever ate! They get it all right for me. Not to much sauce plenty of topping and a crispy crust. I had the garlic and sausage as well as the eggplant ans cheese and my husband had the calzone which was amazing as well. Very chill vibe fast and friendly service.

And the best crust, which is key. Set in funky SOCO, like all good things, Homelike never disappoints. Great beer and wine selection too. Not your average pizza place. Open late!

Not sure of the excitement about this place. I have eaten better pizza in shorter lines. It is not bad but not deserving of the popularity. I have eaten there a few times but would not recommend it because of the crowds. It might be just me.

I love pizza and always try local pizza joints whenever I travel. This is the best pizza I have ever eaten. The crust is thin, perfectly seasoned with the perfect amount of crunch. The brick oven definitely sends this pizza over the top. I also enjoyed the low-key atmosphere. Many customers were stopping in for a slice on their lunch... More

Delicious pizza, worth the try, the crust is the best, located in the heart of SoCo district. Staff very friendly like all places in Downtown Austin.

Stopped by here during the summer one evening while following my family as they played Pokemon Go around the city. We ordered a few slices out of the to-go window, and it was quickly available and delicious! It comes in huge, occasionally messy portions, so a few fistfuls of napkins come in handy. A great casual bite to eat. Sitting... More

Yep, all I had was 2 slices - not very impressive for the "buzz". The interior has a cool vibe, the staff friendly. The sausage was different, bordering on strange, but ok. The white sauce slice was kinda dull, not savory or interesting. Overpriced for the scanty toppings. Again, note that I only had 2 slices, so my experience was... More
