Brick Oven Pizza July 21, 2016 When I called to order the food last night, the man who answered the phone was VERY impatient. I ordered a large pizza with mushrooms, sausage and extra cheese and two greek salads. The bill came to forty-something dollars. My wife said that when she picked up the food, (Stewart) the man who she... More

This place is super weird but amazing! It's connected to a video store where they rent VHS and DVDs. The guy was nice, he was there alone. The pizza was awesome! No one dines in but we did. They also sell fresh eggs. Owner has a chicken farm, so people were coming in with their egg cartons to exchange for... More

My husband and I stopped here on our way through town. The outside of the building has curb appeal, but the inside is a let down. First of all, it is connected to a video store and as a result has a display of videos for sale. There were less then five tables that were all filled with "stuff". The... More

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
