We don’t have to ponder for very long when the subject of worst meal we ever had in Austin is broached. Red House Pizza holds that dubious honor. We were once served a pizza there that bore little resemblance to any commonly held definition of that beloved food.

Red House has shuttered.

Hot off the Twitter wire we just read a report from Austin Business Journal that the restaurant is no more.


Rumors have been flying in East Austin for the past month that Larry Perdido, one of our town’s most talented chefs is coming in fast for the takeover.

Our spies have further reported that the new concept is going to involve roasted pig and copious amounts of ice cold beer. Personally we’d love to see John Mueller stage a triumphant return to the old building that was his stage for both a stunning rise to the top of the Texas barbecue world as well as an equally stunning fall.
