My family and I stopped in at the Big Cheese a few days ago, and I can't tell you how exceptional our meal was!! We love pizza and couldn't wait to try this place. It was amazing!! The sausage pizza was beyond delicious and my kids both had their own mini cheese pizzas and finished all but 2 pieces. We also had the mozzarella bread sticks which were beyond our expectations. (Don't think deep fried mozzarella sticks like at fast food places.) These were larger cut pieces of toasted bread that were drowining with mozzarella inside. I also had a small Greek salad with this dressing that I only wish I could bottle and bring home. I know now why they have posters bragging about the awards it has won!! The pricing was extremely reasonable for the amount of food we ate and the service was quick and courteous. The guy behind the counter, Jeff, was quick to take our order and sincere with his recommendations. Great place, great atmosphere, and great pricing!! A must see!!

Big Cheese Pizza is an absolute MUST! I have been to this restaurant at least six times and everything I've ever ordered has been phenomenal. You have to try their special house salad dressing (which very well may be the best dressing I've ever tasted in my life!) The cheesy bread is incredible and don't even get me started on the pizza! Among my favorite pizzas of all-time! Make sure you take a moment to talk to the owners Connie & Sosti who are on-site almost every day...GREAT people...and the food is just as awesome as they are! Do yourself a favor and go to Big Cheese Pizza...you will not be sorry!
I've eaten at this place quite a few times, as well as had delivery, and I can't say enough. They don't disappoint-their pizza is incredible, it's soft and crunchy at the same time, and their salad dressing has me and all my co-workers are addicted! The mozzarella bread is so incredible, I use it as bribery on my sons to behave. The staff is also very friendly and cool. I'm very lucky it's so close to my home and work, but even if it wasn't I would make the trek, like my friend who turned me on to the place who drives in from northbrook.
The Big Cheese is a great find. Not your typical Chicago style pizza, which is a nice change. Many types of pizzas so I won't get bored. Everything I have tried is delicious, and trust me I have tried everything.
I like that it's family owned and operated, that always shows in quality. Welcome to the neighborhood!

I could not believe what I a was tasting! The thin crust pizza is fantastic and so was everytihng else I've had. Being a vegetarian and conscience about healthy foods, I found out that they make everything FRESH every morning and they have a great variety for vegetarians! The place feels hip and comfortable. I don't go a week without craving the house salad! Its a must for all those pizza lovers!
