Benito's Brick Oven Pizza and Pasta is a homey, Italian trattoria in North Myrtle Beach, SC. Our pizzas are handmade and baked in a wood-fired brick oven. Our pastas are made from old family recipes. Bring your date, your family, or your golf buddies and enjoy the best pizza and pasta dishes this side of the Mediterranean!
Benito's Brick Oven was established in 1989 by Paul Himmelsbach. Our long-time customers will remember the original Benito's, which was located in the center of our current parking lot. A lot of great food was served there. Over the years as our popularity grew, it became a struggle just to get a seat at the table. The decision was made in 2010 to demolish the old building and move next door into the downstairs area of the Himmelsbach Communications building where On The Green and On The Beach Magazines are published. After a lot of planning, dust, building, and cleaning, the new Benito's opened its doors in March 2011. Now we have more seating, more parking, more bar area, and even more people who want to eat with us.
Benito's Restaurant has become one of the most successful restaurant operations on the Grand Strand. You can tell this by the size of the crowds waiting in line during the summer. It has become a local's favorite and is known for its Old World recipes and succulent New York style pizza. Benito's has been recognized by many publications including Golf Digest which named it "Myrtle Beach's locals' favorite."
The driving forces behind the operation are Joey, Ernesto, Gayb, Travis, and Tyler, all known by their customers on a first name basis. For the entire team at Benito's the customer and the quality of food always comes first. Only 100% natural ingredients are used and cooked from scratch in the old world Italian style.
It is said that on cold winter nights you can hear the ghosts of the magazine workers rustling about upstairs. Or, if it's after 5 PM, they're probably sitting at the bar.
Benitos has another location! The next time you are on the resort island of Cozumel, Mexico, be sure to visit our sister restaurant - Benitos in Cozumel. Benitos Cozumel opened in September of 2016 and was an instant hit with locals and visitors alike. Be sure to check out the Benitos Cozumel web site if you're interested in the best pizza in Cozumel.
