“Love their double crust”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012

We try to make it out to Big Freds at least once a month. Their double crust pizza is excellent, but don't miss their salads. HUGE waits on Friday nights and all weekend long, no reservations but plenty of TVs around to watch the sporting event of your choice. Tends to be loud but food is very good. Reasonably priced.

“Bib Fred's”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2012

More than a sports bar, Big Fred's is an Omaha tradition. Good food, moderately prices. I like their prime rib sandwich. Always crowded but it is a big place so they can usually find room for you.

“Very sorry I went there”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2012 via mobile

We first ordered onion rings and they came surprisingly fast. When I took one from the basket, it was as cold as an old maid's heart, so sent them back and waited patiently. Finally the new batch came and so did our pizza. I ran out of soda and the help was hard to be found except when it came for the check. I have eaten at Big Freds in the past and it has always been fine BUT not tonight. If BIG FRED were alive today, he would have made things right rather than the gal behind the till saying "sorry, please try us again". I don't think so.

“Terrific thin pizza, nice atmosphere.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2012

An Omaha classic. Huge thin-crust pizzas (a little thicker than La Casa, for comparison) with lots of cheese and thin sauce. Meat toppings are high quality and good taste. Lots of other menu options, including a nice French Dip and other hot sandwiches, for those who don't want pizza. It's always crowded but still a good place to dine in, nice family atmosphere.

“Worst pizza i've ever had!!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2012 via mobile

The salad was ok the pizza was the worst part. Took the first bite and I already wanted to leave the whole thing. Very bad flavor, poor seasoning, overall did not like the restaurant. Not worth the 30 dlls we paid for my husband and I. Never write reviews but this one I had to, by the way this was a recomendation by a stranger.
