The Cheesecake Factory Restaurant Review

: The Cheesecake Factory, with its kitschy décor, friendly servers, oversize portions and craveable cheesecake, continues to see crowds day in and day out on the Mag Mile. Though there’s something for everyone, favorites include the long list of pizzas, burgers, salads and pastas, with other entrées like shrimp scampi, steak Diane or a seared tuna tataki salad. Cheesecake is the obvious dessert choice; it’s selecting just one that’s the problem. Our vote goes to the peanut butter cup fudge ripple or classic New York-style with fresh strawberries.
