Very Average Food

After a day of shopping at the mall we decided to stop by CPK. The food was average at best, especially for the price. I do not plan on another visit and I am glad that there is now a Cheesecake Factory as an alternate choice.

CPK has great fresh food! My favorite is their artichoke dip. I have to be careful with gluten and there are quite a few great options for gluten free. Of course, they are known for their fresh pizzas and they really are great!

I usually do not write reviews for popular chain restaurants, but I feel that I have to publicly commend the management of this restaurant for the excellent service they provided our family last Friday night. We were a family of four, and each one of us ordered an entree for dinner. When our orders arrived, the server apologized that my... More

If you like meat, they have one of the best pizzas ever, the Meat Cravers ! It comes with ham, hamburger, peperoni, cheese and it is really spicy. I will definitely go back next time I visit the USA.

I stopped her while traveling through Austin for business one day as I know that CPK makes really good gluten free pizza and doesn't make me sick from cross-contamination most of the time. The service here was a little slow, and the pizza didn't make me sick. However, it was very bland compared to other locations of the same menu... More

When you're stuck in a shopping mall, restaurant options are few. This place does nothing to draw in customers. Food is what you'd expect from a 3rd rate chain. Not only is there no happy hour but the prices for draft beer are way out of line. Next time I'll wait until leaving the mall before looking for a place... More

Love how you can hop over here during your shopping at Barton Creek mall and grab some lunch! They are always fresh and yummy. Love their pizzas-got the works and the Club for 3 of us and still leftovers! The bread fills you up and then the pizzas even though they look small, they are really filling! Yes it may... More

I really like this restaurant. The waiters are lovely, the food is perfect, and the price is fair. The restaurant is a little bit far from downtown but it is easy to get there by bus.

I don't like leftovers when I am traveling. Small plate choices are perfect. The avocado corn concoction we tried was almost the reason to lick a plate!

Wait staff and management were super friendly and helpful. Got a small plate quesadilla and it was delicious. Enjoyed the atmosphere and our waiter who looks like Ashton Kutcher. Had a lot of fun here with friends and they even gave us a special discount so our meal was half off. Good place to eat at the mall.
