The Cheesecake Factory Restaurant Review

: The University Avenue location of The Cheesecake Factory towers over nearby spots with its chain-style grandeur. Chinese chicken salad and a large burger are both crowd-pleasers. The actual cheesecake is gooey, very sweet and served in enormous slices --- as with everything else on the menu sold as a "serving," one portion could feed an average family of four. Be sure to take home leftovers.
