Heard about this on so many websites, that we made it a must stop on our trip to San Antonio. Arrived around 7pm, to what was a 20 people deep queue. This did move relatively quickly, but was slowed down by people who didn't know what they were ordering or had trouble paying etc. as you'd order before being seated.... More

East side pizzeria that is always busy for a reason. A favorite of locals that serves everything you would expect from a traditional pizzeria including pasta dishes, sandwiches, pizza wraps, calzones, chicken wings, salads and pizza. They are locally and nationally famous for their 42" pizzas. I've dined here and ordered take-out many times. Never disappointed by the food flavor... More

Great service and good pizza!! Son graduated the BMT for the Air Force. We would eat here again. Be prepared to spend at least $100 for a family of six, there was plenty of leftovers.

Like the name says.. Big Pizza! Some friends and I went there for dinner and we could not finish the pizza. We had a great time but we should've brought more people with us. The line is always long but the pizza is worth the wait.

My dad was visiting from Ohio and apparently saw this place on the show Man vs Food. They have a giant 3 1/2 foot pizza however the price makes it unreasonable. We ordered a couple regular large pizzas and chicken wings. The pizza, sorry I got to say for me it was a little to greasy, my family and I... More

The pizzas at big Lou's are as big as 60" they can also make any pizza you want the smaller pizzas are better for kids if you have 4 in your family, if you have a big group than you should get a big 60" pizza

Thank nicolefalt
