Big Fred’s is a long time pizza joint in West Omaha. It was a regular when I lived in Omaha and is now a must on any trip back. The pizza is still wonderful! Dine in or carry out. If I can’t stay to dine in, I take a ½ baked pizza to go. Then I freeze it and carry... More

Big Fred's is cool and not because it's trying to be. If you are a teenager or in your twenties or thirties or so and you want to know what life was like for your parents or grandparents (or at least what it was like to go out for some pizza) check it out. At Big Fred's you order by... More

Even though it was a Friday night at 645 pm we had great service. We LOVE the garlic cheese bread. My daughter said she could eat that alone for dinner! The pizza was very hot and yummy. We will certainly come back !

This time we were seated promptly our waitress was friendly & attentive. Our pizza was good & enjoyed by all. We had young children with us. The waitress made sure... More

This restaurant is average at best. Interior is minimalistic, but does offers a semi "sports bar-like" environment, yet it appears to be family friendly. It can accommodate large crowds. Our server was really nice and professional and did everything she could to make our meal pleasant. It did seem to take a long time for our order to arrive. The... More

We have dined at Big Freds for over 40 years. Our last experience was the worst. The onion rings had a thick hard batter and we're not eatable. The pizza, Big Freds combo, was simply not good. The meat was tasteless and the vegetables were undercooked. Overall it seems the quality of their food has continued to decline. Sorry to... More

This family owned restaurant is known for there pizza and pub grub. The pizzas are great with right amount of sauce, heavy toppings and a golden brown and also charred crust which makes its even a better pizza. However the service is HORRIBLE , they don't take order correctly and expect you to wait another 30 minutes when you repeated... More
