Foodie Finds, Central TX

FAVORITE PIZZA HOTSPOT

By far, the experience is a memory waiting to happen. You don’t want to miss our fabulous find that has grown to be a huge success and a community favorite; Pinthouse Pizza!!! Near Allendale, off Koenig on Burnet.

We’ve known you were the best from the very start! Make sure to go here every month in all the seasons if you want to try their latest pizza of the month uniquely handmade recipe. Also  and excellent brewhouse with plenty of options. The hospitality will have you coming back for more. We usually take anyone who visits us in Austin from out of state, to Pinthouse Pizza because it’s guaranteed to be a great time, anytime!

Other Great Pizza Finds

House Pizzaria

A small menu but a delectable treat! Where else can you get potatoes on your pizza and hand picked organic squash from Green Gate Farms! The head chef is very hospitable and you must try this diamond in the rough asap! On airport road, just down from some other great restaurants on the street! Great service and friendly too! Their olive oil is wonderful!

Home Slice

For your ultimate New York Style Italian Pizza Fix, great food and service. To go window or dine inside. This place is always packed so some come early or later than eight. They also pair with Urban Roots during SXSW and give back to a greater cause for Music by the Slice! I volunteered Spring 2014 for this epic SXSW event and it was a blast! I also got free beer, a giant rice krispie treat and yummy pizza afterwards! If you’ve been meaning to come to SoCo, head here now if you don’t mind a wait.

East Side Pizza

Not always the best customer service but their creative menu is unparallel to most others and there are so many great pies to choose from! This is a must try for you pizza lovers and you will probably come back for more if there is one in your neighborhood.

Craig O’s

Oh Craigo if only you were closer to Manor! We love this place and fell in love with it’s pies when we lived near Brodie. You have gotta try it too, especially if you enjoy the taste of caramelized onions and lettuce in your pasta salad! Great service, and great food. What more can you ask for?! Yes crust is delicious.

——-

For the record, I grew up near Chicago and was accustomed to Deep Dish Pies. The pizza we recommended above is New York or Italian Style Pizza. The new Deep Dish take home pizzas by Papa Murphys are inexpensive and you take them home to bake in your oven. I heard they are considering Manor….stay tuned! If you are ever in Chicago, you have to eat at Giordano’s Pizza!

BURGERS

AUSTIN

Sputnik Hands Down if you add the smoked bacon! However I recall the time my friend Dan brought me to The Jackalope, their burger was killer and so were the waffle fries! Great drive through burger joints? Hat Creek Burger Company, P.Terry’s, and Hill-Berts. In and Out is finally here for those of you who have the California crave, it’s on Airport Blvd.

PFLUGERVILLE

We found Moonie’s Burger House in Pflugerville delicious and liked all of the menu options. The burgers are huge!
