Pleasant late lunch

This place is the true definition of a mom and pop place. Our pizzas were cooked to order, not some preheated concoctions. There are loads of magazines and sleeves of old Trivial Pursuit questions to help you pass the time while you wait, along with a used book (and video?) store attached.

Grabbed Pizza and salads on a rainy day in October and sat right near the fire place - just perfect. The pizza was fresh, flavorful and cooked just right. The Fall salad was bright and fresh and just perfect. All in all, a great Saturday afternoon pick!

I particularly enjoy the whole wheat crust that is available at Brick Oven Pizza. I've never had a bad meal here, whether dine-in or takeout. If you're in Highlands, NC and you want a pizza or calzone, this is the place to go. I say that as a former resident, not just a vacationer.

You just never know sometimes the little gems you may discover when traveling. Brick Oven Pizza is one of those gems. The pizza was very tasty. It had generous amounts of toppings with a tasty crust. I had an opportunity to speak with the owner who was very gracious and welcoming. The young lady who crafted my pie was warm... More

After being completely ignored at the other pizza place in town, I decided to try brick oven. The owners are on site and they are very friendly and make a very good Pizza. Good for a crowd of kids or inexpensive eats in an otherwise upscale restaurant town.

Anyone that has anything negative about this place has clearly never stepped foot inside. Everyone is so nice, and the calzones were one of the best i've had. I recommend this place to anyone that is looking for a great atmosphere, affordable and delicious food.

I am very picky about my pizza, being from Italy. I won't eat at chain restaurants, preferring to go to small family joints. I wasn't going to have any pizza stateside while back home visiting, but I was needing my fix. Hand-tossed crust, good sauce. Almost like home. Owner even offered to make a garlic-free white pizza (imagine that!) for... More

And by finger lickin good, I mean the associates lick their fingers as they prepare your food. Luckily, the seat we chose had a view right into the kitchen where I saw just that happening. We would never go back. Even the dining room felt dirty and it was part of this creepy little video rental store.

Ordered pizza in advance for 7:15 pm and we arrived 20 minutes early so they prepared our order. Played checkers while we waited. What was startling was that 2 of the three employees were outside smoking when we arrived. The young blonde girl prepping pizzas in the kitchen greeted us, was very nice. The other two came in shortly but... More
