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

Called in to order a pie and salads, got put on ETERNAL hold. Called back and no one would answer....Fred would roll over in his grave! Ordered from La Casa instead.

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

I have been going to Big Freds for 40 years at least. It is a must try for Pizza in Omaha. The salad is really good as well.

This restaurant is odd because one day the pizza will be great and then the other it will be mediocre. I really don't know why it's so inconsistent.

I grew up in Omaha and still have family and friends in the area. This was always one of my favorite places so whenever we go visit, our first stop is usually lunch at Big Fred's. We love it so much. The salads are great too! I wish I could figure out a way to take some home with me!... More
