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!

It’s an icon of Oak Ridge. A fun place with very good pizza. You can’t get to know Oak Ridge without trying it. They recently went from paper plates to real dishes and that upset a lot of locals. You just don’t mess with tradition.

The grandchildren, grandma and grandpa went to BiEd's today. The kids had a blast watching the workers toss pizza dough. The pizzas are tasty, too, but if you like to eat with a fork the plastic ones at Big Ed's won't cut it. We have...More
