My boyfriend and I ordered two pizzas for delivery. The BBQ chicken and the big O pizza. Both were very under cooked. I could not even eat my BBQ chicken pizza, the cheese and all the toppings feel right of the thin soggy crust. It was disgusting and we are both very mad we spent $40 on pizza we cannot... More

We had dinner here after a long day of walking around ArtPrize. All three of us ordered salads. We had the Caesar, mozzarella and tomato, and a Cobb/Chef with garlic (bread) knots. The salads and bread were excellent. We ordered a brownie sundae to split for dessert. Also, delicious. Nice family atmosphere. TVs abound. Small bar. Overall, small, busy place.... More

Fast, efficiency, friendly staff. Was crowded and noisy at lunch. Glad we went a bit early. Food came out quickly. Thin crust, personal pizzas were tasty. BBQ chicken wrap was acceptable, not great. I'd stick with the pizza next time. Easy walk from any downtown hotel.

I had a business lunch at Big O' Café today and split a 16" pizza with two other people. I'd been in the mood for a more traditional pizza for a while so was thrilled that I was having lunch with two other like-minded people. The pizza was perfect and the service was excellent (Emily). A three-topping pizza and three... More

Great wait staff, decent kitchen, pizzas kinda OK. We tried a couple pasta dishes, Gorgonzola Pasta & Gina's Pasta......both were good. Not world class, but this is a pizza place. We got a small pizza to go and it was also OK. We can recommend Big O.....it's half underground right next to Leo's Seafood. Worth stopping in.

There was something for everyone in our group of 15. The bananas foster was wonderful and the lasagna was huge.

This is a good Monday destination for half price pizza! Lots of variety, customize for your taste! Good place for a casual gathering or couple's night.

The black bean soup was good. The lasagna was excellent, plenty of meat and seasoned well. The pizza was filling and the boys ate so much. Visit it, it's worth it.
