Having lived up north for several years and visiting my relatives in Boston, I feel that Big Ed's pizza is the best around for 1000 miles. Big Ed was a Marine who was injured in WWII, came back to start this pizza place, and helped...More

Popular local pizza parlor there since 1960's. Always busy. Good thin crust pizza with home made sauces and real cheese and a good toppings. Do not come here expecting anything more than pizza and a soft drink or beer.

A friend of mine had been telling me that I needed to make the trip and try the pizza. YUM! It was delicious. There was a bunch of neat old stuff to look at. Very enjoyable time and very good pizza.

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.
