One of those hole in the wall kinda place to try!

Big Fred's was a suggestion from family in the area as a must try. We were not disappointed. If I saw it from the road, I probably would not have stopped, but don't let that stop you! The pizza was great! My husband ordered a burger and onion rings and that was wonderful too. The onions rings... read more

Go straight for the largest pizza, half hamburger and half Hawaiian - simply stellar for 40 some years. Place is not fancy but the pizza is addictive!

Slow service , barely warm food, waitress a snob, and manager thinks it is your job to fix those problems!

Took an entire 17U baseball team and their parents to this restaurant because it came with high recommendations of one of the family's. We had a group of 33 and without hesitation our server swooped in and took complete control. She kept all the tickets separate and organized, the drinks were served immediately, and she was attentive to everyone. When... More

My family has been going to Big Fred's for Thirty years. When Fred was around, it was very good food and friendly. They were known for using real hamburger(not pellets) and excellent ingredients. It was a Family atmosphere with good service. Not Now!! My wife and I just bought the worst pizza ever. It might have been real hamburger (I... More

Had one of the worst Chicken Breast sandwich I've ever had. Service was so slow I had to have my order packaged to take (over 40 min) should have left it! This chicken went down fighting! it was so tough I couldn't chew through it. Onion rings had so much coating could hardly taste the onions but they were so... More

I went here with 29 other people after a volleyball tournament. We were seated in the back room. The server suggested getting a pitcher of a couple of different pops, some appetizers, salad, and pizza. She then set glasses with ice, plates, silverware, napkins, and all of the drinks and food on one table and we all went around the... More

I can't believe the negative reviews, Maybe there were a few bad days? I love their ground beef pizza. I love the beef they use and the half inch thick cheese ( my sister always asks for extra cheese when she orders) I love their sauce and I love their pizza! I know Chicago is suppose to be the place... More

Used to be one of the icons of Omaha but soaring prices and poor wait staff have led this Pizza Place into ruins. Ebter at your own risk.

This was our first time dining at Big Freds. We dined on an early afternoon it wasn't to busy. The restaurant was very clean and nicely laid out, all tables no booths. There are TV's placed everywhere so no one has a bad view of a game on. We ordered the Chicken Parmesan sandwich and Spaghetti and Meatballs. The Chicken... More
