We reserved for a large crowd and surprisingly enough they kept the food coming without issue. The beer on tap is good and the pizza is as well.

It had been 25 years since I had a Brick Oven Pizza and I must say that was way to long. I was in town for a meeting and I am so glad we met there. Absolutely the best Pizza anywhere!

We ordered the spaghetti with meatballs and it was tastier than what I had in Rome, Italy. Salads are tasty, service was good, good location and parking available. I will eat here again when in the area.

Had a very enjoyable meal. Even though I was unable to enjoy their pizza, that looked awesome. I did have a great salad. If was fresh and ample. They had a nice selection of wine and my entire party enjoyed the experience.

Description
The Brick Oven was established in 1982 in downtown Austin. We built the largest wood fired Brick Oven in Texas from original designs, using cast pieces over 100 years old. In 1989 a second location in Northwest Austin was added and a similar sized oven constructed. Each Brick Oven weighs over 20,000 pounds and burns three cords of oak wood every month to maintain temperatures of nearly 700 degrees. The massive size and high temperatures assure fast, consistent cooking and give our food a unique character and flavor. We feature house made breads from original recipes, high quality fresh ingredients and are locally owned and operated.
