Stopped in for a Pizza – Lenoir City TN

Laurie, Dawn and I had gone to a movie matinee and on the way home we decided to stop and have a pizza.  We remembered a place where Laurie and I had eaten a couple of years ago.  Since we didn’t have any bad memories, we decided to try it again…

Angelo’s Brick Oven in Lenoir City Tennessee bills itself as 'Italian with a Side of Southern'.  The menu is quite broad with a number of appetizers; 6 dinner salads; 5 burgers; 14 different Subs & Pita sandwiches; Calzone & Stromboli (6 specialties plus create your own); a broad spectrum of pasta entrees ranging from Baked Spaghetti to Veal Parmesan to Fettuccine Carbonara; 4 shrimp dishes including Shrimp & Grits; 3 steaks and of course; the Brick Oven Pizzas.

Pricing is quite reasonable.  Burgers run from $5.95 to $7.45 for a double and they come with French fries or homemade potato chips.  Most pasta entrees fall between $9.95 and $14.95, with Angelo’s Grand Tour of Italy, (lasagna, chicken parmesan, spaghetti and fettuccine Alfredo), at $15.45.  Steaks are under $14.00 and the subs/sandwiches range from $6.25 to $7.45.

Back to the reason we stopped for dinner…Pizza!  We ordered the large Meat, Meat & More Meat Pizza. ($14.95) Dawn also ordered the Greek Salad, with Kalamata Olives, Pepperoncini and Feta Cheese. ($6.95)

I failed to take a photo of Dawn’s salad, probably because it was delivered after we got the pizza… When we asked where it was, the waitress told us that it had to be prepared in the kitchen.  Apparently, it’s a project to put it together?  In any case, when it arrived, Dawn said that it was satisfactory…but she had hoped to have it before the pizza arrived.  The waitress should have known to ask Dawn if she wanted the salad before the pizza.
The pizza itself was flavorful with plenty of meat to satisfy the carnivore in us all.  It would have been a little better if there was a bit less crust… All in all, we’d come back for another pizza or to sample other items on the extensive menu.  As for other pizza options, the menu lists 16 specialty pies including a Chicken Bacon Ranch, a Bacon Cheeseburger (with pickles) and a Shrimp Spinach Pesto with Tomatoes, Mushrooms and Peppers.  You can also design your own…
Angelo’s Brick Oven is visible from US 321 in Lenoir City.  It’s located at 175 Kelsey Lane.  Hours are from 11 AM to 10 PM daily.  Phone: 865-988-9288.  Website: http://media.wix.com/ugd/bd02ea_028b1a5f154e13b7a69452fd36f36396.pdf?dn=Angelos%2BBrick%2BOven%2BMenu.pdf.

  1. Now I am craving pizza! You would think with such an extensive menu, they would give the choice of thin crust, regular or thick. I prefer a thin crust too. After all, the crust is just a necessity; we're all there for the toppings and cheese anyway!
