My girlfriend and I are regulars here, so much that the staff know us by name. The atmosphere and decor is wonderful. The front of the restaurant gives you a good view of Independence's business district. Far from just a pizza place, this restaurant has an all you can eat salad bar, sandwiches, and an arcade in the back. Oddly... More

If you love a fresh homemade light pizza then this is perfect for you. Their crust is a homemade and is made thin not heavy. The sauce is original and not too spicy out of the jar tasting. Multitude of toppings to complement any pallet.

I was thrilled when I saw this restaurant and that my girls would have an opportunity to eat at a Big Cheese!. We were starving and it did not disappoint. Employees were so kind even though we came close to closing time. Whenever I am back in Independence, we will definitely go back.

I use to see a bunch of these restaurants in the 1980's. As a kid of the 80's, I remember enjoying the pizza more than I did in 2015. It wasn't the worst pizza, but not close to the best. Where was the sauce? The interior is a throwback to the 1980's, oh I guess the game room screams 1980's... More

This has always been my favorite Pizza place. From the crust to the sauce (which isn't too sweet like Pizza Hut) to the melty cheeses--this pizza takes the cake for me. It's pricey, but completely delicious and worth it. Won many awards. This is what I crave when pizza comes to mind. People that choose Pizza Hut over this gormet... More

There are not a lot of restaurants in town open for lunch on Saturday besides fast food. My friends and I decided to try this place out and we were very satisfied. Good pizza, pasta and even a salad bar can be found here.

Good service,with food being served in a timely manner. Average pizza, but still far superior to the majority of other pizza chains.

It is your typical small town Pizza place. The pizza is good, the people are pretty nice, had a video arcade area and was actually pretty quick. We had a Big CHeese growing, so going to this one brought back childhood memories

Prices High for lunch..always seem to be updating the salads at the beginning of lunch. Has to wait for the items to return.
