Big Lou’s Pizza2048 S WW White Rd, San Antonio, TX 78222
Home of the 42″ pizza – as seen on TV. Lots of other menu items. Great for big groups. Worth stopping by if you’re going to be a resident of the area. One of those things you have to do at least once.

Founded in San Antonio. Made it to the “bigtime” on national TV. A little more pricy than I care to spend for a quick pizza run. But the ambiance is good for dates or first impressions. And the food definitely tasted fresh. 

Jimmy’s Family Pizza226 E Fest St, San Antonio, TX 78204
This place. Let’s start out with unassuming. In an old building with a residence and dog upstairs. Bear sometimes barks hello. 🙂 Limited parking but ample street parking on the block. Looks like it is in a bad neighborhood, but the area is being gentrified and the property values have been soaring. It is on the border of the King William area & Blue Star District downtown. It would probably be considered more of the So Flo and Lone Star area. Jimmy is actually the owner. Think Seinfeld’s “Soup Nazi” on some days. 🙂 But as long as you can respect the local hustle and be patient then Jimmy will deliver – this place is the antithesis of a washed out corporate spot – and mostly for the better. This place is his “baby” and you can see him everywhere in it – decorations included. Always has the TV on and is a good spot for groups. Honestly was one of my favorite local spots – I’d recommend the lemon pepper wings and I like a basic pepperoni and mushroom pizza.

I really like this place. Apparently this is their only location, but they execute it very professionally. On par with established corporate chains. I like the ambiance. Sit down, but not stuffy. Bright and open. Good service. The food is a little more expensive that a cheap pizza run, but tastes fresh. I highly recommend the Parma pizza. Delicious and craveable!  Located on a busy corner in the thick of the La Cantera shopping center. Lots of free parking is available, but you might have to walk a bit on a busy day.

Main Street Pizza & Pasta – 
Unassuming local spot. Been around for years. Nothing fancy about it, but definitely delivers if you’re looking for a non-corporate spot to  grab a hardy bite to eat. Lots of menu options in addition to the pizza.

This is usually my first pick for grab and go pizza. Thin crust, but also has gluten-free and cauliflower crusts. The kicker here is unlimited toppings for the same price. Build-your-own or order one of their recommended combinations. Only two sizes – personal or what might be classified as a small to medium size at other places. They try to bill themselves as providing fast service, but I’ve been greatly disappointed on that at many of their locations if there is a line. Doesn’t seem like they encourage their employees to focus on the customers. That being said, I love the options and the price. My order is: pesto sauce, arugula, cilantro, basil, garlic, parmesan cheese, asiago cheese, bacon, salami, spicy sausage, artichokes, mushrooms, onions, tomatoes, rosemary, oregano, salt, and pepper. Then after it’s cooked, I top if with half balsamic fig glaze and half sri-rancha sauce. Mmmmm! 🙂   

Southtown Pizzaría728 S Presa St, San Antonio, TX 78210
A little more expensive that other places, but I hear good things from people about this place. Not a chain. It’s located near downtown in the Southtown area.
