Best pizza sauce I've ever had

My wife and I drive 50 km one way to have pizza here almost every week. The sauce is amazing. At first you think it's sweat then a bit of spice hits you. I don't know how they do it but I can't get enough !! Please Big Red don't change a thing it's perfect right now

We decided to have a bite to eat before getting back on the highway and decided to stop at Big Red's. It was a bit chilly so we decided to order bowls of seafood chowder to warm up. It was very tasty and it filled us up. Many people were there for pizza and many more came in for takeout,... More

Really friendly, likable owners. This a great place for the family to hang out. The Pizza is clean and fills you up, but the flavours aren't great. The sauce is highly acidic and dominates the other flavours. It tastes like a make @ home pizza making kit, and they even have the hotdog option. I think there are some nostalgia... More

When I was a child we visited my grandmother quite often. The highlight of every trip was going to Big Red's. The pizza was delicious, with plentiful toppings and sauce that was sweet and just a little spicy. My grandmother has since passed away but every time we get to Chester to visit family we try to make a stop... More

Big Red's has been my FAVORITE pizza place since I was a child. Their pizza sauce is unlike any other around, and most definitely not even close to "ketchup" as one reviewer had mentioned. Far from it. A little spicy, lots of flavour, and really sets them apart from the other pizza places in the area. Great subs too -... More
