Big Ed's Pizza

Big Ed's Pizza is all about the atmosphere. It's a no frills kind of piace where the pizza is cut with scissors. – Theresa Montgomery, TN State Photo Services

An Oak Ridge landmark that offers delicious pizza. It's all about the atmosphere at Big Ed's. Oak Ridge memorabilia lines the walls. Plastic forks and small paper plates are all that you get. Napkins are on the table, and you'll need plenty to enjoy your meal! It's pizza, beer and cokes only at this pizzeria, but really, what else do you need? Your pizza is cut with scissors, served hot, and eaten until it's all gone.

Big Ed's was originally owned by Ed Neusel and was a hot spot for football-game Fridays, family celebrations and hang outs, and a great place for high school kids to earn a little extra money. Ed passed away and his son David took over and little changed. After David passed, his wife kept the business running and it continues to look and work like it did when it first opened. Big Ed's is a must for friends and family in visiting the locals, as well as a big draw for our international visitors and tourists. Many a Big Ed's t-shirt has been spotted in airports across the globe.

This is a landmark for sure, from the large caricature of Ed on the front window, to the lifesize portrait of the former owner inside. Big Ed's dark, eclectic atmosphere keeps you busy as you wait for your delicious pizza to be delivered straight to your table.

The menu is simple - - Pizza and something to wash it down with! Big Ed's celebrated their 50th Anniversary in February 2020!
