In March 2020, Lulu's Bakery and Cafe closed its doors due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Lulu's Bakery and Cafe was made famous by a 3.5-pound cinnamon roll that has been featured on many TV shows including Man versus Food. Not only was the cinnamon roll epic so was the chicken fried steak! I was fortunate to enjoy one of these massive cinnamon rolls before they closed their doors.  While Lulu's Bakery is not coming back you can still get the 3.5 cinnamon roll again! Lulu's was part of the San Antonio food scene for more than 20 years.

Thanks to the son of Lulu, Mike Behrend. his mom’s famous 3-pound cinnamon rolls are now available at his other restaurant, Green Vegetarian Cuisine. You can now order your own for only 12.00 by visiting their website.



Another San Antonio restaurant that has been featured on TV is Big Lou's Pizza. They are famous for their 62-inch pizza. It is absolutely enormous.  My family has celebrated a few different times here and has experienced the 62-inch pizza. Alongside being huge, the pizza tastes very good. Have you ever been to Big Lou's?

Another restaurant that was featured on TV was the Tip Top Cafe on Fredricksburg Dr.  It was featured on 'Diners Drive-Ins and Dives.' We made a stop at this restaurant, however, we were kind of in a hurry and did not have time to wait.  If you are not looking for it, you will miss it.  The Tip Top Cafe has remained almost unchanged for over 70 years ago. Guy Feiri couldn't stop eating the open-faced roast pork and gravy sandwich, the beef enchiladas, and the buttery fried shrimp.  Take a look at that show segment below.
