I was at a Joel Bauer Passion 2 Profit event over the weekend (l’ll have a review of that BS soon) and had an opportunity to have lunch at the Cheesecake Factory. I can’t believe I haven’t eaten at Cheesecake Factory before. Maybe it’s because of their name – I’m not much into cheesecakes. However, cheesecakes are just the start of what the restaurant chain offers.
The Cheesecake Factory did start out with nothing but cheesecakes. Today, it’s a restaurant empire with 157 locations across the United States. We dined in the Woodland Hills, California restaurant.
Cheesecake Factory Restaurants are very big. Most of the California locations have outdoor patios so you can enjoy dining in the sun, which is what we did. The menu is very colorful and offers sponsored advertising as well as food. I give the Cheesecake Factory props for maximizing their revenue. Selling advertising on their menus is something most restaurant don’t do.
Cheesecake Factory Grilled Shrimp and Bacon Club
I order the grilled shrimp and bacon club for lunch. It was made from charbroiled shrimps, bacon, lettuce and tomato with the Cheesecake Factory special dressing. The club is normally served with french fries or a green salad, but I upgraded to a Caesar salad.
Overall, it was one of the best club sandwiches I ever had. The Cheesecake Factory menu offers so many items that I will have to go there a few more times to try out some of the other dishes. If they’re anything as good as the grilled shrimp and bacon club, then I’m going to be a customer for life.
