“Good pizza but slow service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2013

We ate at Big Ed's for lunch and enjoyed the pizza. However, the service was slow and average at best. We would suggest avoiding Big Ed's during the lunch rush unless you have plenty of time to spare.

“Good crust”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2013 via mobile

Went for dinner a little before 6p on a Friday night. Server was nice, but very rushed. We had to stop her from leaving the table after dropping off our drinks to tell her we were ready to order.
The pizza was really good, especially the crust.
Will definitely return, but may try a week night next time.

“Best Pizza in TN!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

If you love pizza, you truly have to try the pizza at Big Eds. It's hard to even describe the pizza - you'll just have to taste it to see what I mean. Just be prepared because they only take cash or check - no credit cards! I've seen people have to leave after they get to the door because they only carry credit cards. It's worth going to the ATM to get cash for this pizza. :-)

“They Do ONE THING, and They Do It Right”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

This place is what you would probably call a dive. They serve one food. Pizza. Period. It is one of a kind. I love the small pizza for myself (cheese). If you want wings, cheese sticks, or anything but pizza. Turn around. But it is GREAT. The dough has some type of sweetness to it, the sauce is not over powering, and the cheese is perfect. Greasy and yummy, the way God intended for pizza to be!

ONE WARNING....be sure and bring cash. Credit Cards are NOT ACCEPTED.

“Perfect place when you are in a pizza mood.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2013

This was the perfect place when you are in the mood for pizza. It is obviously very popular and all the tables looked like everyone was having fun. Lots of people, but the wait was not that long. The pizza was good and the drinks cold. Lots and lots of interesting memorabilia on the walls. It was recommended and it did not disappoint.
