“What a tradition,what a pizza!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012 via mobile

The pizza has never changed. The meal is great and consistent. Big Ed has made a great contribution to the local community by giving back. The restaurant is a proud supporter of our troops. Go on to Big Ed's and have a wonderful meal. I love this place.

“All The Way To Memphis”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

Well, we drove all the way to Oak Ridge one afternoon just to feast on Big Ed's sausage...pizza. The drive was long, but, amazingly, it took even longer for us to receive our pizza even though there were only a few other patrons in the place.

The crust was boring. The cheese was boring. The soft drinks were too soft (okay, not really, but you get the point. If you're in Knoxville, save yourself and long trip and longer wait and go to Roman's Pizza instead. If you're in Oak Ridge, go to Roman's Pizza instead. You'll probably make it back home sooner.

“Nice experience”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

When researching restaurants in Oak Ridge, Big Ed's kept popping up. We were greeted promptly and informed they now only serve pizza. (website said otherwise) Service was good and pizzas arrived timely. They were of great quality, but honestly, not the best I've ever had. I would visit them again and I wouldn't mind the menu changing from pizza only.

“Pizza Heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

My husband has been taking me there since I meet him 28 years ago and it has changed very little still has awesome pizza and beer and coke products no frills like salad or anything but the place it's is just trip back in time. It is almost the same as when Big Ed himself used to stand at the bar to welcome us in.
