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.

Reviewed February 20, 2012

Great, fresh food served in unpretentious setting. You can feel comfortable going in jeans. Very fresh, light food.

“A Different Pizza”
Reviewed January 9, 2012

While visiting Austin, Tx we ran across an interesting pizza restaurant that turned out to be very very good. We dined on the patio with the state capitol in view. Delicious pizza, good portions, great waiters and very attentive.

“Spicy Pizza”
Reviewed November 28, 2011

Reasonably priced Pizza in a clean informal setting. It has been at this location for decades and the last time either of us had stopped in was twenty years ago. The meal for two with tea, and appetizer and medium pizza was about thirty dollars. Perhaps not as good as I remembered, but then few things are, but I enjoyed it and will consider it again the next time I am in Austin and hungry for Pizza.
