Most Austinites will readily admit that the otherwise foodie-loving city is not the best spot in Texas for pizza. Luckily, there's Home Slice Pizza. The South Congress Avenue pizza joint serves piping hot New York-style thin crust pies for line-out-the-door crowds nearly every night of the week. If you've never indulged in East Coast pizza, their menu makes it easy with step-by-step instructions on how to eat foldable slices. In addition to oven-fresh pies, Home Slice tosses a great dinner salad and pours a wide variety of red and white wine. Plan a stop at this eatery to witness Austin at its best.
Foodheads began in 1992 as a boxed lunch catering company. Later it transformed an old house, near the UT Drag, to house its dine-in restaurant that has attracted quite a crowd. Students and Central Austinites flock to this popular lunch spot on the weekend to enjoy made-from-scratch sandwiches on FoodHeads' sunny patio. The casual eatery has a favorable reputation for fresh food, homemade soups and giant sandwiches like mom used to prepare. Try one of their delectable specialties like pastrami, tuna Nicoise or smoked salmon bagel with a refreshing cold iced tea.

The kind owners make you feel at home even on crowded days and service is usually swift. The atmosphere is always abuzz with more locals than outsiders. As most patrons will testify, the drive to this Little Deli & Pizzeria is worthwhile.
