Franklin Barbecue and Home Slice Pizza closing (for a day or three)

Matthew Odam

Two of Austin’s very casual dining spots will soon close. But, don’t panic. They’re only closing for a day or three.

Franklin Barbecue will be closed on Sunday, September 14 to participate in Texas Monthly’s barbecue festival. Home Slice pizza will close its dine-in restaurant from September 8-10, as the staff takes its annual research/reward trip to New York City. (Take-out will still be offered at More Home Slice next door.)

While I’ve got you here, here are a bunch of other places to find pizza … and my Top 10 Austin barbecue list from earlier this year.
