My husband and I have a "rating" system for pizza - we both LOVE good pizza. Big Fred's is at the top for both of us, and we rarely agree on anything! The onion rings are fabulous, too. My 'buds POP just thinking about it! Mmmmmm, good!

There's a lot of local loyalty for Big Fred's and because of that, I've eaten there several times. However, I can't bring myself to call it anything but average. The pizza is gloppy and greasy with no real character to the flavor of the sauce or crust. The atmosphere is family/sports bar oriented. Each time I've been here, there have been unattended kids running around. Don't get me wrong, it's not bad - but I do believe it is ridiculously overrated.

The wait was too long, the service was terrible, and the food really wasn't all that good (it came out cold). I had heard a lot of good things about Big Fred's, but when my wife and I went one Friday night...ugh. We had about a 15 minute wait, which wasn't bad, but it took about 10 minutes from the time we were seated for ANYONE to take our order. Then, our order, a simple 2 topping pizza, took about 25 minutes to get out to us. In the meantime, we didn't get water, bread...nothing. Our waitress didn't even check on us. Our food arrived just as we were about to leave and go someplace else. The pizza was cold and not very good. I would NOT reccomend this place to anyone. Go to Zio's for family pizza or Vincenco's or Vivace for good Italian.

Pros: Can't think of any

Cons: Poor service, poor food quality, too crowded

Big Freds has the best pizza in Omaha, bar none. Everyone who works there is extremely nice, and the service is fantastic. If you are ever looking for a cheap, good pizza place to eat, Big Freds is it!

This is ome of the best pizza you can buy. I personaly talked with a few of the cooks and they were very knowledgable about how to make pizza. They make everything from scratch and you will not regret eating here!

Big Fred's is truly a family friendly restaurant that also serves Pizza that the entire family can enjoy. THe pizza is tasty and well made and served quickly so even the hungriest family member won't be complaining for long. THe house salad dressing is the best and the portions are large. The atmosphere is casual and laid back. A great place to go before a family movie.

Active duty in the US Navy has put in many different and exciting places. For all the places I've been (including Italy) the best pizza I've ever had in my entire life is from Big Fred's in Omaha, NE! This is pizza that you will either love or hate! I loved it. With it's unique taste and exceptional quality there is no better pie for my money. I make it a must stop every time I'm in Omaha and I hope you will too. The weekends are extremely busy it's best to call in advance!

I have been visiting this restaurant since I was a little girl! The pizza has been my favorite forever! We usually go to Big Fred's to celebrate birthdays and other occasions!! The staff is great and the food is unbelievable!! I reccommend the pizza of course, the salad with house dressing, and a nice big cherry coke!!!

The pizza is definitely unique. You will either love it or hate. I loved it. This is also a popular hangout during the College World Series and many of the teams frequent this pizza joint.

Atmosphere is typical of a pizza pub. Can be crowded.

This is an Omaha institution and should not be missed.
