Enormous portions, good service

Went for dinner on our last night in Chicago. Was not disappointed! Portions are enormous - I went for one of the 'skinny' options (Chicken enchiladas) and still couldn't manage dessert! We had to get cheesecake to take away! Service was great - can't remember our guys name but he was attentive... read more

Been there for lunch. The design of the restaurant is very nice. As always, a good selection of food and cakes. The atmosphere is ok, but since it was very busy, didnt enjoy it as much as i usually do in other cheescake factories. Service was quick, and the mexican style taco soup was very good. Everyone was happy with... More

We usually try to eat here while on a visit to Chicago. The food was very good and the portions are generous. Carla was our waitress and we really enjoyed her enthusiasm and her promptness. There are so many choices and they are all always very good.

I went here about a month ago and had fish tacos. They were delicious. Plus the atmosphere was nice and our service was solid.

We tried the carrot cheesecake, The red velvet cheesecake, and the Reese's peanut butter cup. They were all amazing but at $9 a slice they better be.

This is a fast food chain which has made its name by serving MASSIVE portions of artery clogging lunches, dinners, and desserts. Just look around! This place is a... More
