I live around the corner from The Big Cheese, and for a fast, tasty reasonable priced pub type restaurant, this is the place to go. Great dishes, variety of great sandwiches and huge salads to choose from. If your in a bind over lunch or supper think or this place first. You won't go wrong.

Great variety on the menu of sandwiches, salads and meals! The house Italian dressing for the salad is absolutely delicious! Great for take out or eat in. Reasonably priced!

Went here last week for lunch. Inside the restaurant is a bit dark and crowded. The restaurant needs to be updated on the older side. The restaurant is on the small side and they have both take out and dine in business. The staff was friendly. The food came out hot and was very good. Will be back for lunch.... More

I was introduced to "The Big Cheese & Pub" nearly 10 years ago, when colleagues suggested it as a great gathering spot for a mid-day meal. In a way, I almost regret that first meeting as it has steadily lead to many pounds around my waist! If dining for the first time, don't let the wood paneled-walls fool you. It... More

I can't believe I have never been to this place before. I drove by it and decided to order a pizza to take out. To my surprise that pizza was amazing . From the crust, to the sauce the cheese and the toppings it was all cooked to perfection, I can't wait to go there again.

the Big Cheese in Cranston, RI is a great place for lunch or dinner, and just as great a place for take out food. The pizza by far is the best I have ever had. We always order enough to take some home for the next day. There is a lot to choose from on their very extensive menu and... More

The restaurant itself could use some updating but the food and the service is fantastic. The pizza is amazing and all their dishes taste like good old-fashioned Italian home-cooking. Love their calzones, sandwiches and salad too!
