I'm not real sure why it had been so long since we've eaten at the Cheesecake Factory. It used to be a good excuse that we had to go all the way into downtown. Not anymore. The Cheesecake Factory has been in the burbs for a while - at NorthPoint Mall. I forgot how extensive the menu is. Seems like it's 40 pages! Everything you could possibly imagine, at your fingertips. The service was impeccable. The food was great. The cheesecake was awesome! We even took a couple slices home for later. We stopped in for a birthday dinner for my wife. I'm just glad my birthday is in a couple of weeks and I'll have an excuse for us to go back again!
