Excellent Garlic Rolls

Went here on a recommendation from a friend who used to work at the U and we were not disappointed. It has a great college pizza place feel with Miami stuff all over the walls. Our server was hilarious and very conscious of our needs. We ordered the garlic rolls and ended up getting another... read more

Our fishing group meets monthly for dinner. The last 2 times we selected Big Cheese in Homestead we were greatly disappointed. Service was super slow and the waiter was always blaming the manager and the kitchen staff for the problems. It was decided not to go here again. Two other tables also got up and left due to slow service.

This was my favorite pizza place when I lived in Miami. Always go here when I'm back in my hometown for business or pleasure. I love their pies and the garlic rolls are smothered in garlic and delicious! The staff is warm and welcoming. Good food and reasonable prices.

I am a former New Yorker and love pizza, however find it so difficult to find any pizza that compares with NYC. But the Big Cheese comes as close as it gets. The hearty slice is nice and juicy -have a side salad and soda at reasonable prices. They have been around a long time, so they must be good.... More

Popular, always busy, local Italian place. Quite tasty, waiters efficient but don't expect much. Good for a quick bite or pizza take away.

I've eaten at Big Cheese for years and years. Service is good and the atmosphere is fun for families with children, but he only time I'm not disappointed in the quality of the food is when I order pizza and maybe, when I order the garlic rolls with the garlic sauce on the side. The pasta dishes are a huge... More

We had the antipasto salad and the philly wrap. Both were tasty and good. The portions are large and we took half of each home. The prices are very good. Service is always attentive.
