Pros: Great pizza. Love the crust. Nice and crispy. You can tell is freshly made. Plenty of cheese and great toppings. Delicious sauce. Cold beer, hot pizza, what else do you need. Good service. They were busy after a UT football game, but had plenty...More

We went to Big Ed's because everyone said it was so good. It was NOT good. The place was dirty. Looked like they have never dusted anything in that place ever. The floors, the walls, vents, everywhere I looked was gross and coated in grit...More

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

Big Ed's is still as great as ever! Pepperoni Pizza was superb. The thing I love most about Big Ed's is that your pizza arrives very, very hot. They cut the pizza immediately upon removing from the oven (with scissors) and quickly bring to your...More

Located in historic, "Secret City" Oak Ridge in a World War II storefront just down the street from Oak Ridge High's football stadium, Big Ed's is the real deal for pizza. Don't expect anything else but great pizza and drinks, and expect that on the...More

I am definitely in the minority locally when it comes to Big Ed's. I like the pizza just fine, but it's not one of the first places I think of to eat. It's dark, it's loud, and it's usually crowded. It's just not my kind...More
