By far, the worst pizza I have ever had. I ordered a white pizza. There was only the tiniest layer of extremely chewy cheese. I ate a few bites and threw the rest of the highly expensive pizza in the trash.
I've had the pleasure of eating at Big Lou's several times over the past few years, and the reasons I keep going back have not changed - great food at great prices, a good beer selection, consistently great service, and a casual but comfortable indoor/outdoor dining experience. On the few occasions when I've eaten Big Lou's pizzas delivered to some other location, I have also been impressed. This place is a Gainesville classic!
I am new to gainesville, and after I saw all the great reviews I thought this pizza was going to be great. Unfortunately, I got the worst pizza I have ever tasted. I ordered the veggie pizza. Maybe they were just having an off night, whatever the case may be I wouldint go back.
Though nothing compares to REAL NY pizza, or pizza from up north in general, Big Lou's is the closest-to-the-real-thing I have tasted in FLA, period. Their pizza is beyond good... by far THE BEST pizza in Gainesville! Heck, they probably have the best pizza in the greater north central FLA area!! Love it
Have had several different items off their menu and haven't had anything bad yet. Great big slices of pizza. Stromboli and calzones are very good. They even have great subs. You need to eat here! If you go for lunch, get there before noon as it gets packed.
