Pizza and beer - no frills. Gotta love it! Service is good, plenty of parking too! Prices were average.

An Oak Ridge institution. I've been going there for over 25 years. Pizza is good, but not amazing. Definitely on the pricey side, but good ambiance, and lots of history and memorabilia all over.

Some of the best pizza we ever had. Toppings were plentiful. They go above and beyond on customer service. We'll definitely return.

Big Ed's Pizza is one of the places that every visitor to Oak Ridge is encouraged to visit. The walls are covered with memorabilia of the time when Big Ed was alive and document the impact he had on Oak Ridge. Unlike the past, they now take credit cards. Unfortunately, the pizza and service are merely average.

We always make a point of having at least one meal here every time we roll into town. It's a staple in the community that does just a couple of things and does them well. Good food, good prices, great service.

I do not get all the great reviews. The pizza was thin crust and very average. I was so disappointed with all the great reviews. A very no frills restaurant, dim lighting, paper plates, plastic forks, and the to go pizzas are sent out in a paper sack. I ordered a Papa Johns new pan pizza 2 days later and... More

Good local pizza with nice atmosphere. The only drawback was the limited menu. They only have pizza. No appetizers.

You will not find better pizza any where this side of NYC.. the hand tossed crust is to die for..as are the selection of toppings..In addition, watching the pizzas being made is a delight for young and old..you won't be disappointed..I promise!
