We offer the best homemade NY Cheesecakes and Southwest "Tex-Mex" food in Costa Rica. Real handmade burgers, wings, skewers, burritos, salads, quesadillas and of course our famous cheesecakes both NY Style and fried (like a chimichanga). When you get bored of rice and beans and crave a monster sized bacon burger on fresh baked bread we invite you to experience Big Apple Cheesecakes and Mike's Southwest Grill.

Great food, good price, good service. What more do you want?

Been here on a couple occasions. Good food with a decent price tag with good service. This last visit we had burritos for lunch. Absolutely no complaints on our part. :)

The menu is well put together with lots of options. My 10 year old daughter, who is a picky eater, even loved the food. I got a... More

I love this cheesecake because it tastes just like what we get in Times Square at the best New York City deli / bakeries. Big Apple is all American cheesecake with a variety of homemade toppings...it melts in your mouth. Big Apple restaurant is the only place I can find cheesecake in Costa Rica that tastes like what I'm used... More
