Dinner at Big Ed's is an experience. The community service the place provide is undoubtable good. It is very unpretentious inside with a limited menu (pizza). I realize that everyone has a favorite pizza but I thought it was just okay.

Stopped by Big Ed’s the other day and was pleased that the food was just like I remembered. I’m sure Big Ed would be proud of the way this business has continued with his great pizza!

Big Ed’s is an Oak Ridge institution! Delicious pizza always served hot. Homemade crust, standard toppings, soft drinks and beer served on plastic plates with disposable forks. Nothing fancy but always great! Super service.

Great pizza as always. My coworker and I had lunch here, and it had been a while since I had visited Big Ed's Pizza, as usual, it was fantastic. It was the first visit for my co-worker and she was very pleased with the experience...More

It's always crowded so get there early. It can be quite noisey but that is part of the atmosphere! Love the pizza--the crust is thin but very good. Big Ed's has been a "staple" of Oak Ridge for as long as I can remember.

It’s simply amazing pizza with obviously fresh ingredients. I’ve been to Oak Ridge on business many times, but had never made time to visit Big Ed’s. I regret not having eaten here before. I’m hooked!
