Sara Louise v. Pizza

Have you ever seen Man v. Food? It's like a travel-food show where this guy eats his way across the U.S. He's a little nutty, but very entertaining. He ate a 42 inch pizza once. That's right, 42 inches, and he ate it right here in San Antonio (I say 'right here' because I'm just a hop, skip and a jump away from San Antonio).

Naturally, Gregory, whose number one hobby is eating, wasn't going to live down the road from a pizza so large it was on Man v. Food without seeing it (RE: EATING IT) for himself, so when the Irish boys were with us, we took a trip to the eastside of town for dinner. Actually, we took two trips... the first time we went was on a Sunday night, and there was a two hour wait for a table. Clearly, everyone wants to eat the biggest pizza in Texas but I don't wait for two hours for anything (patience is not one of my virtues) so we arrived early the following Wednesday and got seated right away.
Not wanting to be total gluttons, we opted for the 37 inch instead of the 42, which was still plenty even though Gregory did manage to eat a whole seven slices of the jumbo pie. Me, I managed a paltry two. (Note To Self: next time skip the salad and go straight for the pie.)

  8. I LOVE BIG LOU'S!! The last time I went, four of us [females] split the 42 inch because the ones in charge of ordering "didn't think 42 inches sounds that big." Wrong. I ate two then got such a bad tummy ache that it caused some spew action. But my god is it good!! My parents like to pick up normal size ones when they feel like driving out of the way for some magical pizza!!

  12. That is one BIG pizza! Looks tasty though. My dad once ate a 22 inch (I think it was?) pizza to himself. It was in his army days and he was dared...

  13. That is enormous and looks freakin' amazing. Some days I would murder for a slice of American pizza... but I daresay you know that feeling? :) Props to you for getting down two slices of that monster but next time skip the salad and go to town, for the sake of all us jealous expats over here!

  14. Whooooaaa!!! :D

    That's pretty epic. I would be in total heaven. Pizza is my absolute favorite food...I need to check this place out someday.

    Thanks for stopping by :) Now following~

  15. What restraint! Only 37"! Was it good?

  16. I love that show. I tried (and failed) the 72oz steak, and husband tried and succeeded at finishing a triple bypass burger at the Heart Attack Grill in Vegas, so we are all about the food challenges! Pizza is hard though, with the crust and the cheese and the sauce . . . good job eating so much of it! Pretty sure we'll have to try this if we ever make it to Texas on one of our trips!

  17. That literally makes me drool. I have total food envy of you all the time now that you're back in Texas and I'm stuck with pretzels and Weisswurst, which admittedly I do like but Texas meals just can't be beat.
