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

This is the best pizza restaurant you will find in Lunenburg county. the staff are always smiling and polite, and the food is awesome. If you are in the area don't miss the change to enjoy this very pleasant spot to dine.

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

this place is not as good as some pizza and donair places nearby. You shouldn't look behind the counter while they're preparing the food, you probably won't want to eat the food if you do. The pizza sauce is basically ketchup. The only reason I would say this place is worth a visit is if you are on a budget.... More
