New menu at Cheesecake Factory

Went to the Cheesecake Factory in King of Prussia Pa last wednesday, it was my first time ever. I heard one of the waitresses say they had just started a new menu. We got a skinny menu with lower calorie options and then the regular menu as well. They had a lot of small plates and appetizers. My friend got the flat bread with wild mushrooms, a small serving for five dollars. We split the guacamole and chips and I also got fish tacos. Everything was tasty and the service was friendly and attentive. We dodged the mobs by showing up at five thirty pm. On our way back to the car after strolling around the mall for quite awhile the place was overflowing.
I wanted to try the place partly because they get bashed so much for their high calorie offerings and for other things. I did stand in front of their refrigerated case of cheesecakes for quite awhile but luckily I was really full and managed to resist temptation. Not sure when I'll be back if ever, but I had a pleasant experience.

  1. I generally like the Cheesecake Factory, but I actually hate cheesecake. I've been there a few times; went to college in Albany, NY and that was one of our best options near school.

    And I tend to feel that the calorie counts on their dishes are inflated by the size of the dish. Just exercise a little portion control and it's all good (hard to do though lol). But it's generally a quick, tasty place if you hit it at a good time.

      I hear ya nutmeg. We had half the guac at least left and some of the chips. Made a lovely lunch the next day.
