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

This is a popular restaurant with university students and everyone else! Some of the greatest garlic rolls around! Always piles of food, whatever you order, and delicious. We've had most of their meals and have never been disappointed. And the pizza is Great!

The place hasn't changed much since the 80s. It's a college pizza joint right by University of Miami. It's decorated like a college sports bar. It gets packed. The pizza and garlic knots are delicious. You can watch the pizza chef making pizzas while you wait for your food as they have a partially open kitchen. They serve Coca-Cola products.

We ate here on the recommendation of a local friend and we were a party of 8. They were crowded and busy with take out, college students, and families on a Friday night. The facility was cleaned and priced right and everything our party ordered was delicious. We had fabulous garlic rolls, buffalo wings, eggplant parm, and pizza. Would definitely... More

It is a shame the poor customer service at this location, we were a party of nine and since we our party was incomplete, did not allow us to sit at the table and asked us to please sit outside it being 93 degrees outside.

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
