Cheesecake Factory in Coral Gables

Yes, I love Cheesecake Factory. It’s important to get that out of the way first.

Normally, you’ll find me waxing poetic about locally-owned restaurants that use fresh beef for burgers or hand-bread their chicken tenders to order. While Cheesecake Factory isn’t locally owned, it does a great job of being a scratch kitchen with a massive menu which is hard to do properly.

It is to be commended, not shit on like some self-righteous foodies like to do. However, there are two issues I’ve always had with Cheesecake Factory.

One is the wait for an available table. The other is where they pack in everyone like sardines.

I’ve learned to eat less at the actual restaurant over the years, which means delivery or pick-up has become my primary way to eat at Cheesecake Factory. Yet, whenever I’m at my sister Michelle’s house in Kendall, we’ll pick some up to have for lunch or dinner.

A few months back, a Cheesecake Factory opened up in Coral Gables, which is a hop, skip, and jump from our home. Since then, we’ve picked up a few meals for early lunches.

The Factory Meatloaf is always a solid dish. My current addiction is their Nashville Hot Chicken Nuggets and the beautiful burger called Tons of Fun.

They lovingly cook this fella on a griddle, unlike their regular chargrilled burgers.

The menu really does have something for everyone, and if you’re somehow able to leave some space in your breadbasket, a cheesecake is the only sensible way to end your meal.
