It had been years since we had been to Benito's Brick Oven in North Myrtle Beach. Previous visits were wonderful, so we were happy to dine there again last week.

First off, the parking lot is very small. Our only choice was valet parking. It was free, but of course we did tip when we left.

We went for the pizza, but they have a large Italian menu as well. Sarah had lasagna, and Misti had a meatball in a bowl (it's their specialty, and I certainly would recommend that you order one!).

Misti and I split a Jamaican Pizza for dinner. The description is: Pizza Sauce, Ham, Pineapple, Bacon, Banana Peppers, and Jerk Seasoning. We had a large for $17.75, but couldn't eat half of it. We should have gotten the small for $9.25.

When the pizza arrived, it looked like it hadn't been cooked, so I sent it back and told them to make the crust brown. I guess I was thinking "wood-fired brick oven" rather than "brick oven" pizza. Back home a pizza from a brick oven comes out with crispy burned spots. Benitos? Not so much. Anyway, the pizza came back a little browner. It was pretty good, but certainly not in the top 10 I've had in Myrtle Beach.

I'd go back for the atmosphere (and the meatballs), but not for the pizza.
