DAILY Food  September 19, 2013, by Phillip Pantuso
"...By now, many Austinites know that Home Slice Pizza partially shuts down every September so members of its staff can make a pilgrimage to New York City. They eat and drink at some of the most authentic purveyors of N.Y.-style pizza in its home environs..."

Restaurant Review: Home Slice Pizza – North Loop
The classic local hot spot serves up its New York-style slices on North Loop
Food Story  August 9, 2018, by Jessi Cape
"...At Home Slice Pizza, where they've been throwing dough since 2006, the New York-style slices are served so big you have to fold them down the middle to eat, and that original South Congress location is as intrinsic to Austin as the bat bridge, which might explain why, somehow, we've never reviewed them. These former New Yorkers are bolstered by the local pizza scene, inspiring born-and-raised Texans to sit on the curb with a slice served on a paper plate, happily letting the grease drip down their arms..."

DAILY Books  November 18, 2011, by Kimberley Jones
"...If you’re looking for a slightly less pricy way to show some love for ABC, a local writing and tutoring center molded on 826 National model, proceeds from Home Slice’s annual Carnival o' Pizza tomorrow will benefit the Bat Cave. There’ll be games, bands, graffiti artists, readings from ABC kids, and a raffle with some nifty prizes, including a trip for two to San Francisco to have lunch with Dave Eggers, a story critique by George Saunders, and “the right to be the only person on Earth who can make a reservation at Home Slice.”..."

At Home in the Outpost
R.O.'s Outpost, 17 miles west of Austin in the Hill Country, serves the kind of food, reviewer Mick Vann reports, that "the old folks grew up on, and the kind rarely found these days in our modern, fast-food, a-go-go world."
Food Story  January 14, 2000, by Mick Vann

"...The director makes the most of Iceland's spectacular sunsets, matching them against his stars' feeble obfuscations and besotted lives, and though much of the film is made up entirely of drunken shouting matches, Fridriksson clearly has a genuine fondness for these emotionally inept people. Not your run-of-the-mill Icelandic coming-of-age movie, Devil's Island is instead a loud, unruly slice of comic conflict that charms even as it chills...."
