The Cheesecake Factory is one of the top rated restaurants in the U.S. It all began in Beverly Hills, CA in the 1970’s, developed by David M. Overton. In 1972, Overton co-founded the company with his parents, Evelyn and Oscar Overton. They opened The Cheesecake Factory Bakery and began selling Evelyn’s cheesecake to restaurants throughout Los Angeles. Today, there are more than 200 The Cheesecake Factory restaurants around the world. Well known for its extensive menu and indulgent desserts, they have so many different varieties of refreshers, frozen drinks, hot drinks, espressos, salads, pastas, fish, appetizers, sandwiches, hamburgers, desserts and more. However, the most popular food that people get is their cheesecake. There is a huge variety of flavors, toppings and consistencies to choose from, but the most popular cheesecake is Fresh Strawberry, a simple dish consisting of a thick slice of the restaurant’s Original Cheesecake topped with glazed strawberries. It’s very sweet but also well done.
The closest Cheesecake Factory near me is the one in Pleasanton, CA. Unfortunately, the servers sometimes aren’t very attentive, and the quality of the food isn’t consistent. One woman who had the Jambalaya dish noted that the noodles were all dry and stuck together within 10 minutes, and there was hardly any sauce to go with the meal.
However, the restaurant is well put together and set up nicely. It’s clean and it has nice designs on flooring and walls with a big entrance, and the restaurant is always packed and crowded. The minimum time to wait to get a table is 30-45 minutes. They have good service but might need more people to help out. Waiters and waitresses are pretty welcoming, and they give you enough time to look through the menu so you don’t feel rushed or pressured.
So, if you want a good, welcoming place that has good service and makes good food, come here. If you’re a cheesecake lover or love sweets then this place is definitely for you. This restaurant would be a good place for celebrations, parties, and family gatherings. I recommend it: go try it out!
