13 Austin Pizza Places With Playgrounds

I can never say no to pizza! Luckily we have lots of spots around Austin where we can get yummy pizza and let the kids run around on a playground or play area.

If you’re looking for a meal that your kids will rave about or wanting to get friends together, try one of these crowd-pleasing restaurants or food trucks.

Find a map of them all here!

1. Home Slice

A turf hill paradise! Head to Home Slice on E. 53rd to get the best New York-style pizza you can find in Austin (and the best subs!). Kids will love the large play area on the patio covered in turf and with a huge chalkboard wall.

2. Meanwhile

Meanwhile Brewing has some of the best food trucks around. The pizza truck parked here, Side Eye Pie, serves wood-fired pizza with interesting fresh ingredients. (And if your kids don’t like interesting pizza, they’ve got kids pies too!)

3. Family Business Beer Co.

We always have the best time out at Family Business Beer Co. It’s laid-back and shaded, has a nice big fenced-in playground, and a yummy pizza truck!

4. Austin’s

Not exactly a playground, but Austin’s has just about every type of activity you can imagine! Go-karts, arcade, laser tag, mini golf, a carousel and more. The bar and grill serves all kinds of food, including pizza, which really feels like the perfect complement to your day of fun.

If you have a Pogo Pass, you get one game of bowling per month and one play package per quarter! Use code AUSTINWITHKIDS for a discount.

5. Aviator Pizza

Aviator Pizza and Drafthouse (Parmer location) has a great biergarten vibe with a playground and lots of spots for kids to climb and run around. We always get a focaccia in addition to the pizza because it’s just so good.

6. Frontyard Brewing & 5Soul Wine Co.

At Frontyard Brewing and 5Soul Wine Co. you can choose between wine or beer to pair with your pizza! There’s no full playground, but there is a gaga ball pit, a four-way seesaw, toys, cornhole and tons of open space.

7. CraigO’s Pizza and Pastaria

CraigO’s in Lakeway has a big fenced-in playground where the kids can run off and play while they wait for pizza (or while the grown-ups chat in peace!). The tables are on a patio overlooking the playground, so you may have to follow your smallest kids.

You can get pizza, pasta, stromboli, meatball subs, you name it.

8. Jester King

Jester King is known for it’s beer first and foremost, but I also think lots of people rave over the pizza! I haven’t had one I didn’t love. Fair warning: If it’s busy there, prepare for a long wait for pizza!

9. Mandola’s Italian Kitchen

The Cedar Park, Bee Cave and William Cannon locations of Mandola’s all have playgrounds (and every kids meal comes with a scoop of gelato)! Get your pizza fix whether you love meat, lots of veggies or both on your pie.

10. Mangieri’s Pizza Cafe

The Lakeway location of Mangieri’s has a nice shaded playground out back and some seriously high-quality pizzas. There are so many specialty pies to try, you could come a dozen times and still not try them all.

11. Oddwood Brewing

Beer (or wine), pizza, an arcade room and an outdoor play area! Oddwood Brewing is a fun place to hang, and you can create all kinds of pizzas from their menu options.

12. Suds Monkey

This brewery just off 290 out west has a fun outdoor area, with balance beams, a fort with slide, tire swing and a cute little wooden Jeep to play in. Lots of pizza options here or you can create your own!

13. Winston’s

Head to this all-day spot in Lakeway for lunch or dinner if you’re in the mood for wood-fired pizza! The playground out back is super cute; your kids will love it.
