The Brick Oven Pizzeria

Best Of IgoUgo

Restaurant | "One heck of a pizza buffet"

The Brick Oven Pizzeria Photo, Winston-Salem, North Carolina
Quote:
When deciding on lunch, my friend Rebecca asked me what we wanted to eat. I am not that picky and said Nick liked burgers or pizza (had I known how much pizza I was going to eat on my cruise I would have kept my mouth shut). Rebecca told me that her and her hubby’s favorite place was Brick Oven pizza and they had a great buffet. We pulled into the very busy parking lot and went on in and had a seat. This place is huge inside and seems to do a very good business especially since this was about 2:30 and past your lunch crowd hours. Often when you do buffet this late, the pizza has been sitting around for a while and often not replenished very often and maybe even be reduced. Not this place. ...Read More

After Nick and I paid a quick visit to several stores to see if he could get his photo enlarged, we were getting hungry and knew we had a drive ahead of us to the next part of our journey to Winston Salem. Nick loves pizza and as we turned down Merrimon road we saw signs for several pizza places. Marco’s was the first, so we pulled in and went on in for Nick’s favorite meal..pizza. Since 1933, this family owned business has been serving up top notch pizza to hungry Ashevillians and visitors alike. They have been voted the best pizzeria in Western North Carolina by readers of Mountain Express from 2003-2011 and the Asheville Citizens Times from 2003-2007. You can start out with ...Read More

The Mellow Mushroom restaurants have made appearances in several of my other journals, but it was my first time visiting the Asheville location. I had been waiting to stop by on several other trips to one of my favorite cities, so I wasn’t missing out this time. Nick and I locate a parking space across the street and hope it will not be crowded as were running late for the show. Thankfully when we arrive there is a nice crowd, but we were able to go right in and grab a seat. You can start your night off with appetizers such as soup, garlic bread, or hummus. They have several salads including Greek, chef, Caesar, and a nice field salad. They have hoagies and calzones. But they a...Read More

After picking up our concert tickets for the evening’s concert, Nick and I went out in search of lunch. Nick is part Italian and originally from Philly, so he likes subs and pizza. We went down around the Biltmore area and on the way back we decided to stop in at Lenny’s. They have both cold and hot subs. Hot subs include meatball, Philly cheese steak, and grilled chicken Philly. Cold subs include Italian, Roast Beef, Turkey, Club, and Deluxe. For those watching their weight they have both chicken and tuna fish as well as several salads. They do have a hot dog. You can add bacon to any order. For vegans/vegeterians there is a salad or veggie sub. They do have a kids menu. Subs here come in...Read More

Buffalo Wild Wings

Restaurant | "Wings..no wrestling! "

When I made our original plans, I planned a night at nearby Harrah’s casino and dinner at Paula Deen’s restaurant. By the time we awoke from our nap, it was dark, cold, and we were tired from the drive. The ride would have taken us on the back roads in the NC Mountains. Instead we decide to skip the casino and eat in Asheville. Nick is a huge wrestling fan. I can take it or leave it, but I don’t exactly mind watching handsome guys in little outfits. At home Nick and I always head to Buffalo Wild Wings when they have wrestling on Pay per View. Even with a meal, it is generally cheaper for both of us to eat than to order the match at our house and still have to cook. So he had me call the r...Read More
