We ordered a pizza for takeout on our way into town. I was a little unsure when I heard my husband order the beef brisket pizza as this was not our usual pizza order. We arrived mid afternoon to find the place very crowded. They have a separate line and parking for takeout so we didn't have to wait long.... More

My family and came from Houston to to see the huge pizza. We ate a just a 10 inch pizza and chicken parmesan. All was great and we did see the 42 inch pizza. No way just 3 people could eat that. Great experience.

Big Lou's started out in a shack down the street and quickly grew to become a phenomenon in San Antonio. While the location is far from convenient, it's worth the drive. I don't know what makes there pizza so exceptional, but it just is. You can get pizzas in ridiculous sizes (greater than 40"). We've gotten a big one a... More

My family and I ordered the 42" pizza and had a blast trying to devour it. The price was acceptable, the pizza was great and we had an amazing server. We're planning another trip to San Antonio in a few months, and Big Lou's is a stop we'll definitely be making!

The best pizza I've eaten! Went with family and got the biggest pizza there was. It was huge! Good place to take the kids and any pizza lover. The salad was amazing as well. We walked out with satisfied tummies and lots of leftovers. Will definitely go back!

Wow!!! That's a big pizza! We ordered the 42 inch pizza after seeing the Man VS Food episode featuring Big Lou's and it is seriously a BIG pizza!! It tasted great too. Awesome flavor! We went early on a Tuesday night and they got busy by the time we left. Apparently the locals love them some Big Lou's pizza. Some... More

We got a Pepperoni/Mushroom Pizza and it was the size of a truck tire!! You will marvel at the 42' inch MONSTER! One slice is... More

Huge pizza! We took the kids for the experience and the wow factor of the large pizza and they loved it! They talked about it for days! We had a large group and we didn't even finish half the pizza...pizza was enormous..took most of the table. I didn't expect it to be good but I was surprised it was pretty... More
