Texas is filled with lots of different spots that serve giant sized dishes, from Serious Pizza in Dallas to Gatti's Pizza in Houston, but there is one place that takes the throne when it comes to making big pizzas. Texas' largest pizza lives in San Antonio at Big Lou's Pizza. If you're craving the cheesy dish, you need to check this place out.
This joint serves pizzas as small as 10 inches and they work their way up to 42 inches. If that is just not big enough, you can order a whopping 62-inch pizza to share with all of your friends. This pizza has been ordered plenty of times before and it takes two people to carry it out to the table.
The massive pizzas are about 3.5 feet per slice. The pizzas are just like any other and you can pick from an array of toppings like pepperoni, mushrooms, black olives and more. And yes, they even let you order Hawaiian pizza.
Preparation of the pizza can take up to two hours depending on the line, so keep that in mind when you hit up the joint as it could be a while before you get your delicious cheesy creation.
Prices for the pizza range from $10 to $88 depending on the size and toppings of your choosing. Gather up your friends and family and get ready to gorge out on some giant pizza!
If you happen to want delicious food but aren't necessarily feeling pizza, the restaurant also offers 10-inch jumbo calzones, pizza wraps and pasta. They do offer catering with their signature salads and wings.
Don't forget to look for drink specials when you're there because they also make seasonal jumbo drinks that are sure to pack a punch.
The pizza joint is open from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. from Tuesday to Sunday, and they are closed on Mondays. For more information and the full menu to the delicious Big Lou's Pizza, you can check out their website here.

The bridge, which hangs over Wurzbach Parkway, was put into place to connect the once divided Phil Hardberger Park and offer animals and people a safe way to cross the busy road.
The bridge will also be an amazing community hangout spot, as it connects a park that features multiple amenities such as a playground, dog park and basketball courts.
The Tobin bridge will also be connecting over 7 miles of nature trails, which will undoubtedly lead to a hike that is truly unlike any other in the state.
Of course, the opening day comes with multiple restrictions to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, including limited bathroom usage and social-distancing.

In addition to the incredible experience of simply walking up and down the path, you can also consider participating in numerous special holiday events that take place on the river.
One of these events is the "Caroling Boats," where you and your gang of friends can rent a boat and take it through the river while singing your favorite holiday tunes for all of your loyal fans.
The best part about the river walk is that not only is it open 24-hours a day, it's also completely FREE, although you might find it difficult to not stop and get some famous San Antonio tacos along the way.
