I was craving pizza and this place cured me. Being a skinny person, unlike the rest of America, I was content eating 3 pieces, but could see other people downing a whole pie by themselves. I wouldn't blame them, the pizza is that good!!!

I have had pizza there several times, and it is always soggy on the bottom and the crust is toasted or burnt. I guess that is because they are fast-baking it to get more pies in and out of the oven. It is not that cheap, especially considering that Papa John or Dominos is better at half the price!!

Cons: Expensive Soggy Pizza

I live in Homestead and we travel at least once a week to eat our favorite is the mushroons and chicken over pasta. loaded with mushrooms and a whole chicken breast my husband and I sometime order 1/2 meal or buy a whole and share it is enough for both of us to eat. Now the Bread is to die for but don't kiss anyone after you eat it. The garlic is wonderful and powerful. I just wish there were 10 stars because that is what I would give it. Now we see that one is coming to FL City and everytime we go to walMart he will say lets eat at the Big Cheese. Just to get me excited and it isn't open yet but you can be asured that the day it opens I will be waiting in line. I have been going there for over 12 years and we and my whole family love it. And to you that has a negitive comment do you work for another Pizza place because I cannot believe no one wouldn't like the Big Cheese. Keep up the good work.

Pros: The Best pasta in Town

Cons: I eat to much bread LOL

Gone here while on vacation-with some friends. It has a large dinner room. They have many toppings to choose from. We had the Miami pie with sweet ham, creamy ricotta cheese & pineapples that was topped with cinnamon. It was really good.

Have been a fan for years. My absolute favorite is the Eggplant Parmesan Sub but I have had the non meat baked Ziti quite often as well. Pretty good Pizza as well. Huge portions great for sharing. Lots of yummy stringy cheese on everything. Decent prices especially if you are sharing. Not sure if they still deliver but they used to and take out is always an option. The atmosphere is quite loud so not a great date place but they don't make themselves out to be a romantic dinner location.

We frequent the Big Cheese with our family because of the fast service and delicious food. The portions are ENORMOUS! The garlic rolls are really good! I highly recommend this place for a casual outing with the family and friends.

Love ""THE BIG CHEESE"" had not been there until recently, when my friend dragged me there, I thought it was a loud kiddie place. Much to my surprise, I had a great time with a nice college crowd and pizza junkies like myself. Food was exceptional. Great menu, pizza is always a la carte with large portions to share (for all you girls). For a sports junkie like myself, the walls are a history of not only UM sports, but all the miami sports stars. Definately a fun place to hang out with friends and family.

Definetly one of my favorite pizza hangouts. Food inexpensive and definetly great. The Pizza is really good and the fettuccini alfredo is real good too. Great place to go with family or with friends. Especially good whenever UM is playing.

The server was excellent, and she made the meal fun. The interior is what you expect a local pizza place to look like. They apparently support UM, and that alone is enough reason to patronize them.

My wife and I eat here every chance we get! Love the food,service.and ambiance. One of my favorites is the chicken alfredo with mozzorella smotherd on top. MMMmmmmmmm....I'm so full after dinner there's no room for dessert, but my wife will make room for brownie and icecream drizzled in hot fudge!! And don't forget the pizzas.Although I'm terrible at remembering all of the names of pizzas,lets just say I've had about 4 or 5 different pizzas, have not been let down.

My husband and I went there for the first time to have lunch. I ordered a salad and he some sort of pasta. The salad was more like wilted mayo soup. Just awful!!! The pasta was no better than a grocery store heat and eat. Extremely disappointing. Neither of us could eat so we paid the tab and went elsewhere.

I've been there twice, and was impressed both times with the friendly and attentive servers, delicious food, and prompt seating. The restaurant is always busy, and full of families, so the kid-traffic takes away from any romantic ambiance, but an otherwise stress-free experience makes up for it!

The food is excellent compared to other non-chain establishments in the city. While it's tough to have a conversation when everyone around you is screaming theirs, this isn't the place you go to for a quiet first date, business meeting, or taking out the in-laws anyway. Parking is catch-as-catch-can, but they will deliver and take orders for pick-up if you'd rather dine at home. This is a great place for ""the guys"" to hang out after catching a movie, the ""girl's night out"" Italian food binge, or the whole loud mouthed family after a Marlin's game. Their meatballs are juicy, pizza slices huge and well stacked, and the clam sauce heavenly.

And to top it off: Wall's Ice Cream is right across the street, offering home made creamy treats that will have you waddling back to the car with unhealthy blood sugar levels. But who said good food was healthy?

Very affordable and super casual servers are so friendly and fast that this is my favorite lunch spot. Plus the location is idea just off the main us 1 highway and the dcor is so Miami hurricanes sports to the extreme. I love their fried calamari basket and the cocktail sauce and fries are a amazing addiction to the deliciously breaded calamari. Also amazing are their garlic rolls easily can eat half a dozen they are real garlic and oil drizzled over fresh hot bread rolls fantastic!

Been going to Big Cheese since they were across the street and only had about 10-12 tables...Moved from Miami in 1998...but don't ever miss the chance , when in town to stop by... My first date with my husband of 14 years was at the Big Cheese. Wish you would franchise...
Only miss the romanticism of the original place...

I've been going to ""BIG CHEESE"" for many years. Love this place. Tons of Great Miami Sports memorabilia on the walls. Famous for their Garlic Rolls (yummy), Pizza, Pasta & Wings. If your starving and expect to be fed pronto, then avoid during peak hours......customers will wait for many minutes just to get in and get seated. Food is plentiful....great price & worth waiting for. Enjoy!!!

I thaught the food would be better than all then hype.... Food takes forever to get to you, and to top it off the food isnt that great.... The workers are really nice, but its a shame that the food brings down the erge of wanting to go back....... I will admitt that the Big Cheese isnt a bad place to go if you just want to talk with friends, but if your hungry eat before you show up...... Sorry BIG CHEESE................

What this place lacks in ambience it makes up for in quality and portion size and with a good variety. The garlic rolls are addictive. After you've filled up on them during lunch or dinner you probably want to take a dozen home as well. The prices are right and the service is very good. There is a reason you have to wait to get in but its worth it.

Great lunch, a piece of pizza (cheese only - you don't need any toppings to make it great) and a bowl of minestrone the best this side of NYC for around $5. Great sports memorabilia on display.

The ingredients are really fresh and the crust is wonderful. Best time to get there is around 11:30. It gets packed at noon.

I can't believe you didn't have Slice and Ice on the Top 10 and you put Papa John's and Sbarro's, which are not even real pizza.
