Big Ed's is an Icon. This is the best pizza that you will find in the area. Yes, it look like a hole in the wall, and you are just as likely to find a roach on the floor as you are a straw. And yes, I am frightened to go downstairs to the bathroom by myself, but I would go everyday of the week there to eat if I could afford it. Tell them that it is your birthday and you will more than likely get a free t-shirt out of the visit. I'll warn you to go to an early dinner there, because if you don't you will be waiting in line a long time- usually outside.
