Eating and exploring our way through the world

Brixx

Posted by Amanda @ The Hungry Wanderers on August 8, 2009

Back when the Husband was writing the blog, he posted about Brixx, one of our favorite local chains here in Charlotte.  For the first year or so living in Charlotte, we heard about Brixx but didn’t check it out and didn’t know what the big deal was – it’s just pizza, right?  Wrong!  Some time in the last year, a friend’s daughter was selling Brixx coupons as a fundraiser for her high school basketball team.  We thought – what the heck – bought some and tried it out.  And we fell in love!

First, there’s their starters and appetizers.  One that we’re big fans of is their wood-fired pita chips and three dips – 3 different hummuses that are soooo good!  (We didn’t get any on this trip though 🙂  )

Brixx has a huge selection of beers on tap and each Brixx location may have slightly different options to choose from.  Many are local to North and South Carolina and Georgia and we usually go with those.  Unfortunately, I can’t remember which ones we ordered on this visit about two weeks ago, but they were good 🙂

To start, we both ordered the Brixx Salad.  It is possibly my most favorite restaurant salad – simple yet delicious.  It contains mixed greens, creamy goat cheese, roasted pine nuts, croutons, and a homemade balsamic vinaigrette.  I believe I order this every time!

Brixx has a wide selection of freshly made pizzas.  You can choose which crust you want (white or wheat) and even vegans can enjoy the pizzas as they have vegan cheese available if you so desire.  On this trip, I ordered a wild mushroom pizza that was topped with arugala and parmesan.

The Husband ordered the Bronx Bomber which contains a variety of meats and possibly gorgonzola (he gets this when he knows I don’t plan on sharing).

Next time we go, I’ll be sure to get a picture of the pizza list so you can see all of the delicious options!  And for those of you not craving pizza, they do have a long list of pastas and other entrees.  We haven’t tried any yet, but we’ll be sure to review them when we do 🙂
