Brick Oven Restaurant
- General Info:
- 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.

Whether you want a quick lunch or a romantice dinner Brick Oven is an exquisit place to dine with. I have never been let down by the personable staff, delicious food, or sensable price. I would definalty reccomend the pizza and any type of pasta. It is great.

I'm not sure why the other reviewers are so negative on this restaurant--maybe they just went on bad days. They use very fresh ingredients on the pizza--the one I had last night had mounds of fresh Roma tomatoes, chipolte sauce, spicy chicken, fresh purple onions, and cilantro. It was delicious, and still tastes just as great this morning! My 4-year-old daughter loved the spaghetti with meatballs, and she is quite picky about her food. For diners who are looking for fresh and healthy ingredients on their pizza, instead of mounds of grease and too much cheese with canned vegetables and frozen meat, this is the spot. My friend had the calizone, and it was huge. The waitress was very nice, prompt, and attentive. The capital was right out our window and was quite beautiful. I highly recommend this restaurant!!

A few coworkers and myself went for lunch one day and the service was bad, to put it plainly. The food was fair. We opted not to complain and let the tip reflect our dissatisfaction with the service. Our server followed us out to our vehicle and returned the tip. I wouldn't eat there again for free.

A recent outing to a Longhorn basketball game gave us the opportunity to dine at this restaurant for the first time in a while. Although the establishment keeps getting bigger every time we go, the quality of the food hasn't suffered one bit. The garlic bread appetizer was tasty and large enough for the four of us. The Ceaser salad was good, although it could have used a little more dressing. But the pizza, ah, the pizza was just right. Good toppings,good crust, good service and it turned out to be a good game.
That's all folks

The food is very average and the kitchen is often careless - for example, I am vegetarian and in one case I verified and ordered a vegetarian pasta in a cream sauce. When it was brought to the table, it had chunks of chicken in the sauce. Another time, a supposed plain tomato sauce had some meat in in - probably from using the same ladle for several sauces. In having business luncheons there several times, the service was NEVER excellent - average at best and often very slow and poor.
