Although it had been a while since we had been here, the pizza (special) was as amazing as ever. And, the atmosphere is unique to anyone who hasn't been here before.

What can I say, Big Ed's is an institution in OR and beyond. It is on-par with Little Italy in NYC and Naples in big Italy. I never visit OR without eating here at least once.

I have eaten at Big Eds dozens of times, and never really cared for the place. I went a couple of days ago and we quite surprised at the change. It was clean, they had a good beer selection, the service was great, and the pizza was pretty good too. Sit by the wall if possible, there are so many... More

Having lived up north for several years and visiting my relatives in Boston, I feel that Big Ed's pizza is the best around for 1000 miles. Big Ed was a Marine who was injured in WWII, came back to start this pizza place, and helped MANY wayward young people in this area get back on track. His son follows in... More

A super place to have pizza. Been going there for 45 years or so, well worth the 1 hour plus Drive. Always a good crowd. The special is our favorite but we substitute pepperoni for the sausage. Although both Big Ed and his son have past away the food and atmosphere are still the same. Highly recommend Big Ed's Pizza... More

Big Ed's is a legend and a community favorite! If your visiting the area its the place all the locals know about and have the t-shirt. Don't forget to ask for a plate of cheese while you have your drinks and wait for the pizza to be delivered to your table. While Big Ed is no longer living his legendary... More

Popular local pizza parlor there since 1960's. Always busy. Good thin crust pizza with home made sauces and real cheese and a good toppings. Do not come here expecting anything more than pizza and a soft drink or beer.
