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

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.

A friend of mine had been telling me that I needed to make the trip and try the pizza. YUM! It was delicious. There was a bunch of neat old stuff to look at. Very enjoyable time and very good pizza.

We went to big eds because we had heard it was the best. After eating there we decided it's average. I agree with a lot of the reviews saying it's dirty especially the bathrooms. This place doesn't look like it has been cleaned or painted in years. The only items on the menu is pizza beer and soft drinks that's... More

An Oak Ridge institution. I've been going there for over 25 years. Pizza is good, but not amazing. Definitely on the pricey side, but good ambiance, and lots of history and memorabilia all over.
