I don’t know … there is something I really like about the Cheesecake Factory. It’s not the cheesecake. It’s something else. I like their huge portions — which is particularly important because I eat very little for lunch while traveling. By dinner time, I am simply famished. And it is by design. I so look forward to dinner after a long day at work.
I like their lavish decor … the high ceilings, marbled floors and the huge (fake I think) columns. It’s just simply classy.
Since Georgia is also known as the Peach State, I ordered the Georgia Peach for my drink. It’s vodka mixed with peach liqueur and peaches swirled with raspberries. I notice I am beginning to take a liking to these types of fruity drinks.
The bread came a bit warm. Quite OK but not great. I felt it was somehow squished flat.
I had already decided I was going to have steak for dinner — been thinking about it the whole day long! When I am traveling, I don’t eat much for lunch on most days and mostly just snacked. So, by dinner time, I am mostly famished.
What caught my eye on the menu was this item that says “… marinated for 36 hours …”. It was the $29 Grilled Rib-Eye Steak. It’s marinated in Cajun herbs and spices but is somewhat dry. The french fries and onions strings added to the dry look. The steak was not too bad. I actually expected better.
For desserts, I had the White Chocolate Caramel Latte Cheesecake. As expected, it was rich — overwhelmingly too rich for me. Suanne would have loved this, I bet.
