Awesome food & Service – I've had fried oysters at numerous seafood places and was a bit skeptical at 1st. I typically think of Big Eds as just country cooking but I have to say these were the absolute best oysters I've had anywhere! They were lightly breaded and very light all around. they were recommended by one of the most courteous employees ever and he didn't steer me wrong!
Keep up the good work Big Eds..I will be back!
Best country breakfast in town – Breakfast at Big Ed's will make you want to cartwheel, it's so good! Hands down best country breakfast around. We arrived around 10am on a Saturday morning and parking was not really an issue, just a block walk. Fantastic live music out front on Saturday's from 10am-noon, high-spirited New Orleans horns will make you think it's Mardi Gras in downtown Raleigh! Inside was crowded, but our wait was less than 10 minutes and there's tons of personalized little greetings to Big Ed and reviews to read while you are in line. Service was prompt and courteous. Perfect eggs - slightly runny yolks and firm whites - made me happy when I had a big ol bite along with the grits and country link sausage. Grilled biscuits and molassas will have your taste buds whooping for joy. Top it all off with a Pepsi and this, my friends, is the good life ;)
Good country food! – I like Bid Ed's, whether it's breakfast or lunch. They've got good country food. A little pricey though.
Country returns! – Wow this place is great, when it comes to country cooking they really know what they are doing! I had the hot cakes and it was the best! I also must say the decorations and all the smiles create a atmosphere of fun and happiness. No one can stay down in the dumps here! Im still missing those homemade biscuits, how delicious! Id just like to tell everyone that you havn't seen country cooking (unless you grew up in the country) until youve gone to Big Ed's!!!!! (just a quickie, there are non-smoking and smoking sections)
One of the most authentic southern spots in the Triangle, this restaurant serves up country-style breakfast in a big city location. – In Short
Red-eyed gravy might be the last thing people expect to find at the urban City Market, but through the doors of Big Ed's is pure North Carolina country cooking. A bustling place that is half eatery, half vestige to the old South, this breakfast haven is no place for small appetites. Try the pancakes and be sure not to miss the scratch-made biscuits. For those not in the mood for breakfast, some lunch fare is available.
Good suthern eatin' – Big Ed's is the best. When I came to college I missed my grandmother's cooking. This place really rocks. A big plus - smoking is available. If you can't smoke in NC, where can you smoke? I highly recommend this to everyone!
I love Big Ed's! – When I was younger, my family and I would go there every Sunday. We would bring our relatives, and any one else we would have staying w/ us! It was a great place for kids to go, for they have many things hanging from the ceiling, its just a really fun and cool place... plus they have great food!
BIG EATS AT BIG ED'S – THE BEST BIG BREAKFAST IN RALEIGH!!!! YA GOTTA HAVE THE GRITS....AND THE AWESOME BISCUITS & COFFEE....GET THERE EARLY FOR THE BEST SEATS....KEEP IT UP, BIG ED!!!!
Big on Big Ed's – Big Ed's has great biscuits, molasses and country ham. Their grits are OK. I do not eat eggs. Great sweet tea.
Yummy and Down to earth – Great food, great service. Not snotty or pricey. Great place to bring friends from out-of-town.
