This pizza is awesome, right in the heart of the historic Jackson Square district you will not be dissapointed. It has been there for yrs and yrs. The pizza is really one of a kind! You have to try it!

“best thin pizza ever”
Reviewed August 15, 2012

This is a real, old-fashioned family pizza joint. They serve a thin crust style pizza with a deliciously distinctive sauce on paper plates, family-style.

“Great pizza, not a chain”
Reviewed August 11, 2012

This place is a staple in Oak Ridge, if you are there you must go. There is usually a wait on weekends. Service is okay not outstanding. You are given paper plates to eat your pizza off of, which I don't care for because you see all the grease that comes off of it. We paid around $32 for a large pizza and 4 drinks which I think is a bit much but the experience and atmosphere is a lot of fun. Pizzas are very large and delicious, kind of a thin new york style.

“Best.Pizza.Ever.”
Reviewed August 2, 2012

I grew up eating at Big Ed's and to me it is still the same as when I first starting eating there 35 years ago. It is a tradition for and family to make the trek back to Oak Ridge at least once a year to eat there.The smell of the place is the first thing that draws you in. This is a pizza place. Pizza, beer and soft drinks. No salads, no pasta. Just Pizza. No thick crust, stuffed crust...One crust only and it is the best. The kids will be entertained watching the staff make the pizza and by looking at the history on the walls. It really is a dining experience worth driving the few extra miles off the interstate if you are going through Knoxville. They do it right.
