Great burgers – I love the burgers they have, especially when getting jalepeno's on the side to add. Normally, these types of restaurants (big chains) have the pickled canned jalapeno's, but the cheesecake factory gives you real ones and they give the burgers a kick. Especially good with a nice extra cold martini where they also give a generous amout of alcohol.
The service is always exceptional.
A must eat at place – Just like my reviews of PF Changs, the Cheesecake Factory is a consistently great restaurant that you can eat at in just about ever city in the United States. No matter what you order, you will get too much delicious food to eat on a plate.
I love every item on this menu, and it is huge! They actually give you a book of items to order.
Today I had brunch, starting at 10:00 AM. Word to the wise, the mall does not allow any alcohol sales before 11:00 AM, so if you want a Mimosa, make sure you get there just before 11:00 AM.
Overall Food Rating on ALL DISHES: 4
Fair Prices: 4.5
Great staff! – I just wanted to comment on the service I received, yesterday. The people behind the counter were excellent. Even though the place was mobbed, the employee's all had smiles on their faces and were very mannerly. They should give lesson's to some of the wait staff at upscale restaurants.
Better places out ther – Yes, it has good food and better cheesecake, but I don't think it is worth paying what you pay. Inside is pretty, but too many high matiance people *men and woman* eating here and acting as if they own the place.
Consistent quality food with a huge selection – This restaurant is perhaps one of the best family restaurants in the area. They have a huge selection on their menu that can suit anyone and everyone's needs. The food tastes fantastic and their deserts are out of this world.
One of the top Cheesecake factories in the country. – Critics can be harsh. Time to keep it real. Yes the menu is a medium sized cookbook with no recipes, yes the wait can be long, just like any half way decent restaurant in San Diego on a Friday or Saturday night, and yes parking is no holiday either, on the weekend. So let's get to the important stuff. First off, the building design inside and out is creative, artistic, and impressive. The atmosphere is excellent, the food exceptional, and service is very good (I love the all white uniforms) . The outside patio has nice ambiance with heat lamps at every table to keep off the evening chill. Out of all the Cheesecake Factories I have been to from Seattle to California to Virginia and back this one takes the cheesecake!!!
Decadent cheesecakes and classic American cuisine makes this a popular chain. – In Short
Faux-rustic finishes and colorful light fixtures abound at this almost always crowded chain. The thick-as-a-book menu features Americanized versions of worldly cuisines--Mexican, Vietnamese, Italian, Thai--but succeeds best with American classics. Burgers are a good choice, especially the ""Roadside Sliders,"" mini burgers served as appetizers. The myriad cheesecakes are over-the-top in concept and decadence. You'll leave full, with leftovers.
One of my favorite resturants in San Diego... – Nice atmosphere setting, outside patio, inside, great for any occasions, wonderful food and service. Also have the best desserts!!
A place for everybody – I love the Cheesecake Factory, simply because EVERYBODY can get what they want there. I have never seen a menu as extensive as theirs, as you can order anything from sushi to pasta to a burger to a steak. And of course their cheesecake it amazing, but you'll probably have to take it home because you will be so full. There can be a long wait to be seated, however the bar usually is not too crowded so we usually go for drinks while we are waiting. They also have a Curb-Side to go, so if you work nearby and want to pick up lunch quickly you can call in your order and they run it out to your car for you! Talk about convenient!
