Head over to The Big Cheese for fresh salads, subs and more

I know I write about my love of sweets and desserts, but I do like other things, too. For instance, I really love salads. As far as I am concerned, there is not anything that cannot go into a salad. One of my favorite places to get a salad from is The Big Cheese.

The Big Cheese salads are large and full of wonderful ingredients like fresh lettuce, huge chunks of tomatoes, cucumbers and so much more. My all-time favorite salad there is the crab meat and shrimp salad. This comes with generous helpings of fresh crab meat and shrimp. I swear it's enough for two meals.

The Big Cheese offers an Italian salad that looks as mouthwatering as it tastes. Their country-style chicken Caesar, with its large chunks of freshly cooked chicken, is delicious too. They have a grilled chicken shrimp Caesar which is full of several of my favorite things: chicken, shrimp and salad.

Besides salads, The Big Cheese offers a variety of other delicious and amazing dishes, including delicious soups. Soup varieties include chicken and noodle, chicken and rice, and a daily soup of the day.

The Big Cheese is known for The Owings Mills Big Cheese Steak sub, which is piled high with sliced steak and covered with provolone cheese. The Ultimate Big Cheese steak is made of wonderfully seasoned sliced steak piled in a sub roll with provolone and American cheeses. Some of the other amazing subs offered include a crab chicken cheese steak, a shrimp chicken cheese steak, a shrimp Philly cheese steak, a crab cake sub, a chicken Parmesan sub, and a pizza burger sub. All of these subs are full of generous portions and wonderfully fresh ingredients. The Big Cheese serves fried chicken, too. You can create your own box with mixed chicken pieces or wings, and you can also get a wing basket, Southern-style wings, jumbo wings and buffalo wings.

The Big Cheese offers pasta dinners that include pasta with meat sauce, veal Parmesan, eggplant Parmesan, chicken alfredo and more. I had the pasta and meatball dinner the other night; it was yummy and came with garlic bread and a small salad.

The Big Cheese is not your average pizza and sub carryout, as it also serves Mexican food. It offers soft beef tacos, soft chicken tacos, chicken fajitas, shrimp fajitas, chicken quesadillas and a number of other quesadillas. They all come well-prepared and smelling yummy. Unfortunately, because they contain peppers, something I am allergic to, I have not been able to try them for myself, but they smell and look good.

You can also get seafood dishes that include popcorn shrimp, buffalo shrimp, stuffed shrimp, real crab meat fries, and scallops wrapped in bacon. Yes, I said scallops wrapped in bacon. Oh my goodness, I love scallops, and when they are wrapped in bacon they get a crispy, crunchy outside with a tender center that melts in your mouth.

I think I could make whole meals out of some of the side dishes, which include bacon cheese fries, pizza fries, potato pancakes, zucchini sticks and fried mushrooms.

The Big Cheese offers something for everyone, and its meals are delightfully yummy and not expensive.

The Big Cheese is at 10724 Reisterstown Road, Owings Mills. It offers carryout, delivery and a dining in section.
