If the server questions your confidence in your order, you may want to change it

Is it wrong that out of all the times I've eaten at The Cheesecake Factory, I've only gotten their cheesecake once? I love eating there, but really, it's not for the cheesecake. I'm usually too stuffed to think about dessert after eating the humongous portions they serve. Their large portion size is in fact one of the main reasons I love that place, right after reason #1 which is their perfectly cut stems of potato goodness fried to crispiness heaven, also known as french fries. I hate going to places that try to be so fancy and only serve you a couple of bites on a too-big plate covered with greenery and other types of inedible tree-like decor.


So last night I went to eat at The Cheesecake Factory with my friends Kerri, Rayna, and Tara. We've all eaten there before, except for Rayna. After telling her how delicious everything was, and how we've never eaten anything off the menu that wasn't downright yummy, Kerri and Rayna decide to try something none of us had ever ordered...Turkey Supreme something or another.

Clue #1 that it may not be the best choice: I don't think we ever correctly pronounced the type of bread it came on.

And Clue #2 (which should have been the dead giveaway): When they ordered it, the server promptly responded with, "Have you ever had it from here before?" And then went into an in depth description of it all the while making weird faces.

Despite the red flags, they went ahead and ordered it and needless to say, it turned out to be a flop. The so-called melted cheese it was supposed to be smothered in was more like Alfredo sauce and they both agreed it was a complete let down. So, just a heads up for the rest of ya: Steer clear of the turkey something or another on the hard to pronounce bread.

We still had a great time and of course, snagged a few pics:

Kerri (K-Bo) and me



After dinner, Tara had to head back home, but the rest of us stuck around for some coffee and last minute shopping.



Tonight the fam and I are supposed to go to Sal Gal's to let the kids decorate holiday cookies to leave for Santa. I'm sure Sal Gal has been slaving away all day and is tired from all the baking. Breaking apart that refrigerated, pre-cut cookie dough can be quite exhausting.

I'm so jealous! I have only gone to the cheescake factory once and it was soo good.. We don't have one near us! That's a bummer they ordered something that wasn't good there..

Funny! I can't believe they went ahead and got it!! The server was probably like, "I told you so!!"

Lindsey said...

Such a bummer because usually Cheesecake Factory is AH-MAZING! But the pics are great, looks like a great time!

Never had the cheesecake??? Blasphemy!!! I mean, since the Turkey-something-or-another was so bad, you should have just had the Turtle Chesscake for dinner... Yum.my!!!

Belle said...

I completely agree about the place! I have only had the cheescake once or twice also! The reason I love it is because I can eat dinner there and then have leftovers for lunch the next day! Score! Its like a two-for!

That is too funny! I worked at the Cheesecake Factory for 2 and a half years, and in all that time I think I ate a total of 5 bites of cheesecake. The food is just way too good! That turkey thing must be new because they didn't have it when I worked there, but as a former server, people should REALLY pay attention when we try to steer you away from certain menu items, haha.

This is hilarious...brings back a funny memory for me actually. I was eating at The Oasis on Lake Travis in Austin with my sister and brother in law about a year ago. (they are known for the amazing scenery and decks overlooking the lake, not their food, fyi) My brother in law orders last and he requests the "chicken burrito". The waiter promptly retorts with, "oh man, that's a gut bomb!"

".....really?!?....umm...Well...I mean do you mean that as a good thing?" (my sister and I are looking in total shock and disbelief. I really think my mouth was agape with a memorable expression too)

"I dunno man, its just a gut bomb"

He got grilled chicken instead...thank goodness.

So funny!!!

How funny!! You gotta wonder when I waiter warns you about a dish. I ordered something once at a Mexican restaurant and the waiter said, "I wouldn't order that if I were you." So I didn't but it was really funny.

I ate at Cheesecake Factory this week too and ALWAYS order the Pasta di Vinci--yummy! Was only going to the American Girl store and was happy to discover that the mall in Alpharetta has my favorite chain restaurant too!!

I actually said DO NOT GET THAT.haha! There were really only 2 things out of the 289 items on the menu that we not good though! The food is amazing! Now I want Cheesecake Fct!
Anyway, after that mouthful...just wanted to say that your daughter is very cute!
