We arrived at 5:45 on a Wednesday night and the place was packed within a short time. The menu is simple, just pizza. No thin crust, no thick crust but it doesn't matter, the crust is good. It holds up to eating easily by hand...More

The only thing to eat is great pizza. They have soft drinks and limited beer. The pizza is made when you order it and comes to the table hot out of the oven. You won't be disappointed.

Hand made and aged crust dough, high quality fresh ingredients, great mix of cheeses, family tradition secret sauce, hand made pie, and a one of a kind atmosphere. Doesn't try to be another cookie cutter pizza.

Although it had been a while since we had been here, the pizza (special) was as amazing as ever. And, the atmosphere is unique to anyone who hasn't been here before.

What can I say, Big Ed's is an institution in OR and beyond. It is on-par with Little Italy in NYC and Naples in big Italy. I never visit OR without eating here at least once.
