The Cheesecake Factory Restaurant Review

: If you don't want to wait forever for a table, plan to visit during the off-hours. Everyone loves the hip atmosphere, mammoth portions of funky foods and outstanding cheesecakes at this upscale national chain. You'll face two dilemmas: what to choose from the multi-page menu and how to avoid overeating. Choices include everything from zany pizzas to overstuffed sandwiches to overflowing salad bowls. We've enjoyed the Santa Fe and Thai noodle salads, all of the burgers and the mix of Tex-Mex eats. Whatever you do, pace yourself so you can enjoy one of more than 30 varieties of cheesecake. Or pack up a whole cappuccino-white chocolate cheesecake or other gem to go? Other locations.
