The Cheesecake Factory in Pasadena or the one in Brea are both great choices. On Friday and Saturday nights, however, expect a 2 hour wait, especially in Pasadena. Unfortunately, they also do not accept reservations for the evening hours and do not take call ahead. Once you finally get a seat, however, it's great. My favorite is the romano encrusted chicken served with spaghetti and some marinara sauce. It's a huge portion, enough for lunch the next day too. Be sure to save room for dessert - you can't go wrong with any of their cheesecakes!
