Big Cheese 


Thin-crusted designer or Neopolitan pizza? Fuhgeddaboudit. This old-timer’s pies (sized large and X-large only) are definitely Italian-American, not authentic Italian, yielding Brooklyn-style slices that are charmingly chewy, foldable, and big. As for the titular big cheese, it’s literally Grande, a Wisconsin brand considered the top American-produced pizza cheese—no watery puddles, no congealed cheese shelves that slide off slices whole. The rest of the menu covers other Italian-American red sauce joint classics: spaghetti and meatballs, baked ziti, lasagna, hoagies, garlic rolls dripping greasy goodness. But there’s a much wider variety of items (fried oysters as well as calamari, for instance), made with better ingredients, such as fresh pear tomatoes instead of canned.
