The pizza is consistently fantastic. I'm from NY, so I'm quite picky and was consistently disappointed in Austin until I tried Salvation. They have great crusts, great toppings, and great cheese, so I've been quite contented with every pie I've gotten there. The service, on the other hand, is spotty. At times, it's been very quick despite being slammed, and a few Friday/Saturday nights, I've deeply regretted setting foot in the place. It seems to be getting better over time and I haven't had a bad experience in at least six months, so it's still among my favorite places to eat in Austin.
Pros: Delicious pizza even by a New Yorker's standards
Cons: Spotty service--usually good, occasionally awful
