You can’t go wrong with a burger from P. Terry’s or some Thai Chicken Kara-age from Asian fusion food trailer, East Side King to finish off the evening. No regrets.

Happy South by-ing, y’all! And remember, if you make the rookie mistake of forgetting things like sunscreen, or a phone charger, Favor’s got your back.

Is it just me or was it on the chilly side this morning? Okay, so we’re not dealing with the arctic temperatures of the northeast, but Austinites aren’t built for 30 or even 40 degree days.

Stay warm this winter with some of Austin’s best, soothe-your-soul meals. And with the help of Favor, you don’t even need to step outside of your central heating.

It’s not all queso and Amy’s ice cream in Austin, Texas (although, we do love them both). While we don’t like to miss a good feast at Torchy’s, with delivery services like Favor, it’s time to embrace some of the healthy options we’re lucky enough to have at the touch of our finger tips.

Only two short years ago, one could count pizza delivery options in Austin on two hands. The choices were those inedible national chains, or Gatti’s/Austin’s Pizza, and a few others (we still love you Conan’s).

Oh, how the times have changed. With Favor Delivery, pizza is a few clicks away from anywhere that offers take-out. In fact, a large pie from my favorite shop for thin-crust, East Side Pies, was the first Favor order I completed.

I included a few newcomers on the list, so hopefully there are a few places you haven’t tried. Take into consideration that your favorite spot might not be on the list purely because it’s not in the Favor delivery zone. Or it could be that we haven’t tried it! Feel free to hit us up on Facebook with your recommendations.

In no particular order:

9. Bufalina

When it first opened, one could expect to wait hours to get a table. They’ve recently (and quietly) begun to allow takeout orders. Take advantage. It’s the best neapolitan pie in the city.

Bufalina-Austin

8. Spartan Pizza

The trailer-turned-brick and-mortar on East 6th is open until 3am on weekends. Skip that Whataburger line and order from the safety of your own living room.

Spartan-Pizza-Austin

7. Lucky’s Puccias & Pizzeria

Known for his puccias (authentic wood fired Italian sandwiches), Lucky recently opened a brick and mortar on West 5th. The pizzas are as crave-able as his signature sandwiches.

6. The Backspace

Parkside’s sister restaurant serves up really great wood-fired pies. Pro-tip: Whatever you order, be sure to “put an egg on it.”

The-Backspace-Austin

5. 40 North

This South First Street newcomer has quickly climbed into our top ten. Try the Hot Honey if you’re into eating things that taste good.

4. East Side Pies

As mentioned above, if you’re a fan of thin-crust, look no further. ESP sources local ingredients whenever possible, and that extra level of care is reflected in the quality of their cracker-thin pies. (Why is this pizza on rocks? I don’t know either)

Eastside-Pies-Austin

3. Little Deli & Pizza

This Crestview neighborhood gem gets very little press considering it makes one of the best New York style pies in the city.

2. Homeslice Pizza

Loved by tourists and locals alike, no list would be complete without a nod to Homeslice. They also take the cake (pie?) for the most often Favor-ed pizza joint in Austin.

1. Via 313

Before you say, “but I don’t like deep-dish pizza,” let me comment that I didn’t either until I tried Via 313. Furthermore, I haven’t met a person who has tried it that hasn’t fallen in love.

Via-313
