The Cheesecake factory is a very popular restaurant in the Kansas City Area. There is now even more than one location. I always enjoy this restaurant. The menu is huge, it'll take you awhile to decide what you want so grab one to browse through while you wait. I love eating out on their patio when it's nice weather. If you are going for dinner, especially around the holidays there will likely be an hour wait and often the lunch wait is quite long too. Their lettuce wraps are very good, as is their shrimp alreado and for major, homestyle cooking try the chicken and biscuits. That dish is so wonderful. Their cheesecakes are all very, very good. Their chocolate and carrot layer cakes are outstanding and enough for a table of four to share. Definitely this restaurant is worth the wait! I can't imagine not walking away full and happy!
