Houston, TX 77007
Houston Press's Description
City Oven is a welcome addition to the burgeoning White Oak nightlife scene in the Heights. With a decent beer selection both on draft and in bottles and a legitimate wood-burning pizza oven, the new spot has quickly become a neighborhood favorite. The food is standard bar fare with a few twists, most notably in portion size; the eatery serves up meatballs the size of baseballs, stuffed burgers and large oval pizzas. Though there are better meatballs and burgers in town, the pizzas are interesting for their cracker-thin crust and unique toppings, and a few of the appetizers and side dishes pair perfectly with a pint of something hoppy. On Mondays, happy hour lasts all day, and the weekends feature live music, but you'll also find families enjoying dinner there every night of the week.
