The Cheesecake Factory Restaurant Review

: Relocated from its former White Flint Mall location, this Cheesecake Factory seems grander and brighter --- and larger --- than its predecessor. Fortunately, however, the menu stays pretty close to the establishment’s goals of offering diversity and huge portions. With so many choices, making final selections is a major challenge: should you start with loaded baked potato tots, crispy Cuban rolls or beets with goat cheese? These are just small plates and snacks, and the appetizer selections expand to include everything from sliders and egg rolls to nachos and wonton. One recommendation surely would be the crispy calamari with two dipping sauces. Next up are house specialties such as the Baja chicken tacos, while the burger choices will take you from a classic version to a buffalo burger, with plenty in between. The dessert menu includes shakes and sundaes, but this place is really all about cheesecakes: the very special Key lime cheesecake is a winner.
