The Cheesecake Factory’s menu is known far and wide for its encyclopedic vastness, spanning pages of deliciousness, with depth of flavor that matches up to its breadth.
Avid Cheesecake Factory enthusiasts, Elie and TK, pulled up to a local Cheesecake Factory to navigate the lunch menu and give us a mouthwatering visual of what to eat there. Our intrepid eaters feasted on the lunch offerings’ greatest hits, all the while pairing their choices with sparkling sips of Dr Pepper. Check out their recos here:
Renee’s Chicken-Almond Salad Sandwich
Shoutout to whoever Renee is, because adding a cup of soup into the mix proved to be a clutch pairing, serving as an unlikely yet delicious dip for the tasty sandwich.
Angel hair pasta glows up with the addition of sauteed chicken breast, lemon sauce, mushrooms and capers. Its perfect portion should entice and lead to a second.
Bee Sting Flatbread Pizza
“Order this one here,” commanded Elie, so who are we to doubt an expert? With Italian sausage, pepperoni, bacon, Calabrian chiles, mozzarella, vodka sauce, parmesan, and honey all throwing a block party with your taste buds, it only makes sense to do so.
Chili-Crunch Shrimp Pasta
Elie anointed this pasta as “the most interesting dish of the day,” which fits, since the crispy garlic and spice amplify everything on the plate.
Louisiana Chicken Pasta
When you have this generous portion of fried parmesan-crusted chicken crowning a glorious foundation of farfalle pasta and spicy, creamy New Orleans sauce, logic compels you to use it as a vessel to quell your cravings.
The go-to. The reliable friend. The dependable one. This is Orange Chicken. However, the “clean” version, as TK would put it, lives right here at the Factory.
An astonished TK let out a bombastic “OH MY GOSH!” after having a taste. And it’s no wonder, considering how the miso-marinated salmon was perfectly flaky like anyone 30 and up invited to social gatherings. That savory moat of miso sauce bolstering the main event played a crucial role on his pleasantly surprised mug, too.
Classic Basque Cheesecake
I mean, we are at the Cheesecake Factory after all. So go ahead and treat yourself to this sweet conclusion.
