True, Cheesecake factory content, as compared with grocery store chicken or shakey’s is probably not much better, nor much worse from a quality standpoint, and maybe, even, from a QPR point of view, depending on how you judge.
What makes Cheesecake Factory especially worthy of all the smack talk is the overwhelming commitment to EXCESS. An appetizer for two? Here’s TWO FULL DINNER PORTIONS of fried mac and cheese. Shrimp pasta? No problem. 1/4 lb pasta, several shrimp drowned in garlic butter and a cup of cheese. Oh and in case you get hungry waiting, have a couple of loaves of bread. And for desert? Why yes, I WOULD like a 8 inch high slab of fat and chocolate, don’t mind if I do!
What’s that? I’m sorry, I can hardly hear you over the sound of my heart attempting to push what is essentially schmaltz through my arteries. My caloric intake in this one meal is enough to sustain a normal adult for 5 days, you say? Thank goodness. I think I’ll be in ICU at LEAST that long. At least they validate parking.
