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!

Big Ed's is an Oak Ridge institution. They serve pizza. I've been many times and most Friday and Saturday evenings it is packed. It used to be cash only and a limited beer menu (Bud, Bud light, Miller Light, etc.) but things have changed. If...More
