Seriously, who hasn’t been to the cheesecake factory….at least 10 times in their lifetime. Ok maybe I’m exaggerating, but not among the people I know who live in the area. I feel like this next one is the default place for people to go to when they want a nice restaurant with good food, that requires no research at all..you just go. Especially because it is great for seating a lot of people and for celebrating birthdays. Not to mention, when people are craving different cuisines, this is the place to go because they have over 200 menu items to choose from! There’s something for everyone. Best of all, their portions are known for being generous and ideal for sharing or taking it to-go.
Of course, they are famous for their cheesecakes, which is how the cheesecake factory started many years back. Its a quite charming American success story of how it all got started. Evelyn Overton started making cheesecakes in Detroit that grew in popularity in their community. She started a business which she eventually had to close down to raise her children. Then when her children were all grown, her and her husband Oscar Overton moved to Los Angeles to pursue her dreams which turned out to be a great decision. In 1978, their son David started the Cheesecake factory restaurant in Beverly Hills, and has grown close to 150 locations. How amazing is that? My pictures are just 5 entrees out of hundreds, but you get the idea.
But now for the real low-down. I’ve been going here…ummm…since 1997, I have NEVER ONCE experienced a hitch in my dining experience. Not with the food, the service, anything. Plus they’ve got something for everyone. So in that regard…its GOOD.
HOWEVER, I’m so over it! For like the past 8 years! Every time someone suggests we go here i’m like whyyyy!?!? Why not try something new and different?? Most of my friends are too chicken to drive a little further out to experience new restaurants, so they just stick to what they know. I’ve seriously tried like almost everything on their menu. So be adventurous peopleeee!!! If you’ve never been, then go! But don’t be chicken to venture out and try something different!!
