LOVED IT! Their pizza is awesome! Thin crust, good sauce and lots of cheese! Plan on waiting a while, they can get really packed!

“Wow! What a fun, yummy place”
Reviewed November 18, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

A fantastic place for big parties. The atmosphere was lively but over bearing. There was 9 of us and we and we spent about $16 a head: drinks, sandwiches, and their 42" pizza... there was so much food left over. We could have just order the 42" and that would have been enough.
One member of our party ordered the White Pizza, it was one of the best White Pizza's I ever had. Big Lou's is fun and pretty good food... it's not NY pizza but it was good, was it's own style.
We for sure recommend this place, especially if you have a big party.

“Amazing pizza !!!!”
Reviewed November 17, 2013 via mobile

TEXAS size pizza !!!!!!!

Staff: good but not great

Facility: clean, 2 bars and 4 dining areas

Location: in a bad part of town but off duty San Antonio police officers are the prime security element on the location and maintain a great presence

There is a line when you first arrive inside but it only last about 15minutes before you place the order, and given a pager. Then you wait for another 10-15 minutes to be seated once your pager is active. At your table it's another wait for 15-20 minutes for the TEXAS size pizza. All in all it is a pizza joint everyone must experience !

“This was the best pizza ever!”
Reviewed November 4, 2013

We saw Big Lou's on Diners, Drive Ins, and Dives and knew we had to try it. And we were not disappointed. We arrived around 6:15 for dinner and glad that we did at the perfect time as the line was not too long. You wait in line and order at the register. You are then waited to be seated, once seated they brought our salad, which was big enough for two people. It was wonderful! The pizza was then brought shortly thereafter and it was awesome! It was thin crust, but not too thin for us. Big Lou's is a huge place also, and when we left around 7:30 the line was out the door just to order! It was crazy! Big Lou also came by our table and asked how everything was, which was very cool! We will be going back!

“Big Lou's Pizza is YUMMY!”
Reviewed October 11, 2013

Pizzas are unique and though large, no skimping on ingredients...oh and their calzones are just as good...I am a repeat customer...all to the gym I go, so I can continue to enjoy and indulge at Big Lou's!
