Big Ed's Pizza is one of the places that every visitor to Oak Ridge is encouraged to visit. The walls are covered with memorabilia of the time when Big Ed was alive and document the impact he had on Oak Ridge. Unlike the past, they now take credit cards. Unfortunately, the pizza and service are merely average.

We always make a point of having at least one meal here every time we roll into town. It's a staple in the community that does just a couple of things and does them well. Good food, good prices, great service.

I do not get all the great reviews. The pizza was thin crust and very average. I was so disappointed with all the great reviews. A very no frills restaurant, dim lighting, paper plates, plastic forks, and the to go pizzas are sent out in a paper sack. I ordered a Papa Johns new pan pizza 2 days later and... More

Good local pizza with nice atmosphere. The only drawback was the limited menu. They only have pizza. No appetizers.

You will not find better pizza any where this side of NYC.. the hand tossed crust is to die for..as are the selection of toppings..In addition, watching the pizzas being made is a delight for young and old..you won't be disappointed..I promise!

We went with a group of 28 people while in Oak Ridge for a family event. They do not take reservations but we hit it on a fairly slow Saturday night and they were able to put us at 3 separate tables. Everybody ordered different pizzas and pitchers of beer. Our server was terrific and took good care of all... More

Had a group of 15. Good pizza. Said to bring us some assorted pies. They just kept bringing pies and beer. At the end of the night the bill seemed fair and it was obvious they gave us a great value. Just that kind of place. I'll be back.

If you like thin crust pizza, don't miss Big Ed's. We got a few different kinds and they were all excellent. The bathroom could use an update though.
