Regarding Red River

This isn't easy.   While our North Brick Oven is open daily for to-go business, our Downtown Brick Oven will now be permanently closed. For the first time in 38 years, the fire is out.

An Austin tradition - Burning brightly since 1982

A Wood Fired Austin Staple

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.


Our family is committed to bringing Austin the very best.
