Yesterday I was on a field trip and we stopped at OakBrook Mall. Right away I noticed a Cheesecake Factory and knew that was where I would be dining for lunch! I always love to get the Chicken Pesto Pasta, but they also have amazing salads and sandwiches to choose from. The menu is very extensive and they offer many of their dishes in lunch portions for a lighter meal. Of course, you can't leave without getting the cheesecake! The last time I went, I tried the Vanilla Bean - simply divine! I thought it might be a little bland, but it was not at all. My waiter, who was extremely nice, helpful and friendly, recommended it to me. Definitely a stop if you are in the area!!!
