While artisan pizza places have proliferated in recent years, promising to replicate the thin, crisp pies of Naples, Italy, sometimes folks crave the reliable Americanized version we grew up on — and lots of it. Which is where Big Lou's comes in. The South Side institution grabbed national attention with its massive 42-inch pies. Of course, a super-sized gimmick isn't worth much if the pizza tastes like cardboard, and thankfully, Big Lou's doesn't. The dependable pepperoni pies are a comfort food staple, and its brisket-topped barbecue pizza ably pulls off its Texas-style twist.
