After a long day on the road, my family stopped in Oak Ridge at Big Ed's Pizza for dinner. We order two pizzas - one with lots of toppings and another just cheese for the kiddo. Everything is made fresh to order, so the wait can be long when busy. BUT it's absolutely worth it. While you wait, you can... More

It is ok. I am not all that fond of it but others like it. In my opinion, it is ok and difficult to find if you are from out of town.

Big Eds serves a very cheesy pizza. If its your birthday tell the waiter and you will get a free t shirt. Their pepperoni pizza is the vest I have ever eaten. If you visit Oak Ridge, stopping at Big Eds is a must!

It is unfair of me to give a pizza review of any kind because pizza hates me therefore I hate to love it. I loved Big Ed's Pizza growing up, it has changed to some degree over the years but still a decent evening out. Family friendly atmosphere. The beer is decent. The nostalgia is all over the place. FYI... More

This is a local favorite! These pizza doughs are handmade, hand tossed, and cooked in a brick oven! Big Ed's has been there as long as I can remember! It is a local favorite, and an excellent place to visit if you're from out of town! The pies are so big, very tasty, great for a group or a solo... More

We love the crowded loud and fun of this place. The pizza it's out of this world. You just gotta go. Order cheese and olives to munch on while you wait for pizza to come to the table. Look at the walls and take in some history. We love Big Eds. It's great.

Pizza is the best in town. Great sauce!! They only have one type of crust (hand tossed) and a little pricey but good.

We've been going to Big Ed's since the mid 70's. Nothing here but very good pizza. No salads and no sandwiches. Our must have pizza is a large pepperoni and ham. The 2 of us can eat every bite but leave plenty full. we love everything about the pizza from the sauce and crust to the toppings. In general the... More

Great pizza - hot or cold the next morning. Very relaxed atmosphere. The dining in experience is great, especially when the UT Volunteers are playing. Never felt like the sauce was too much or too little. Felt the toppings were always appropriate.
