Each pizza is made to order - no conveyer belts, no freezer. With wide-open spaces on the Colorado River, family-style seating and a sharable menu, we've created a community space designed for getting lost in good conversation and forming lasting relationships. We’re proud to have a unique venue that remains vibrant and friendly. Whether you’re a Bastrop local or coming from out of town, we'd love to see ya'll come down to Neighbor's Kitchen and Yard with your friends or to meet some new ones. We'll see you soon!
