EZ’s Brick Oven & Grill
It all began in 1989 when Cappy Lawton opened a 1950s-style pizza and burger joint in the hills of San Antonio. The place served pizzas fired in a brick oven, Angus burgers, authentic caesar salads, and hand-dipped milk shakes made with Blue Bell ice cream.
More than 20 years later, EZ’s is still serving the same made-from-scratch menu items with a few exceptions—in 2011, the team added healthier options such as organic spinach salads, wild-caught salmon, gluten-free pizzas and buns, whole-wheat pastas, and water from the fountain of youth. But the staff still handcrafts the pizza dough every morning and grills each burger patty to order. To make their signature Beanburger, cooks top the freshly grilled patties with cheddar, black beans, Fritos, picante, and guacamole.
