Taking their pizza concept from its humble beginnings in a Sixth Street food truck a decade ago to a multi-million-dollar five-location institution in Austin, the brothers at the helm of Via 313 put heart and soul into their Detroit-style pizzas.

This week, they celebrated a new milestone: Pizzeria of the Year, as recognized by Pizza Today, the publication for all things pies.



From a glowing story in the August 2020 issue of Pizza Today:

"The Hunt brothers have amassed an incredible following in Austin and beyond for the Detroit pizza they perfected 10 years ago, at a time when the only likely place you could find Detroit-style pizza was in the Motor City. With three brick-and-mortar locations and two permanently placed pizza trailers, Via 313 crushes annual sales at more than $12 million and consistently ranks as one of the hottest pizzerias in the country. This year, Via 313 receives a new distinction as Pizza Today's 2020 Pizzeria of the Year."

A twist on traditional pies, Via 313 brings a taste of Detroit-style pizza to Austin with toppings on the dough under a layer of cheese and topped with marinara.

What started off as a food trailer in 2011 has since prospered into five different locations for the successful business—three restaurants and two trailers.

Via 313 is owned by brothers Brandon and Zane Hunt, who had the dream of turning the city of Austin on to a different kind of pizza, and they've done just that.
