I was ecstatic when I found out Cheesecake was opening in this area, because the closest one to my house used to be in Los Angeles. It's a great trip to go on a shopping spree at Brea Mall and end the day with a delicious meal at Cheesecake Factory~ I always get the jambalaya or the salads there. Don't be fooled by the salads (if you're looking for something light to eat), because they are HUGE. I can barely finish half of one when I'm there (I usually order the Thai Steak Salad). Also weekend nights can get extremely busy (the wait can be 1.5+ hours), so try to get there early!
Pros: great ambience, dishes
Cons: long wait
