DAY 29: OCTOBER 29th, 2016
LOCATION: Big Lou's Pizza (2048 S WW White Rd, San Antonio, TX 78222)
GUEST(S): Robin Rothman
ORDER: 3 slices of Barbecue Brisket
Texas-sized pizza. If ever you doubt that “everything is bigger in Texas” look no further than San Antonio’s Big Lou’s Pizza whose menu includes a 42" pizza generously adorned with 27 pounds of toppings. It is large enough to feed fifteen hungry adults. Due to its gigantic proportions it is only offered as a dine-in option as it is simply too large to leave the building. If you must take your order “to go,” opt for the 37" size which only requires a slight tilt to exit the kitchen. As you might expect, Big Lou’s pizzeria is HUGE - outfitted with multiple wide open dining spaces including a sports bar, several back rooms and a patio all perfectly suited for kids' birthdays or post-Little League celebrations. The unique oven needs that come with offering such comically large products results in an unconventional order-before-you-are-seated scenario, but this adds to its family-friendly atmosphere. While there are mere mortal size pizzas and a full menu of sandwich and pasta offerings, it’s the 42" behemoth that put Big Lou’s on the map - but he didn't stop there. Given proper advance notice, your private party can order a 62” pie. The crust is thick and chewy so expect leftovers - especially if your slice is over two feet long! I recommend the barbecue brisket if your kids let you.

1. Robin Rothman and I went to the San Antonio Riverwalk after lunch. It's awesome and beautiful and full of life. It was the Saturday of Halloween so there were a bunch of folks in costume too.

3. We had leftovers and weren't allowed to bring them into the Alamo (no outside food or drink). Robin snapped a photo before we tossed out the box with the pun "Pizza Pie Alamo'd" on her instagram account.
