The Cheesecake Factory (Glendale, Wisconsin)

A bit of research prior to a road trip will help uncover some of the must stop at eateries. A great way to find out about these restaurants is by asking the locals. Another way to find restaurants worth stopping at is through online forums and reviews. Sometimes you get luckyEither way

I usually make a no bake cheesecake, mini cheesecake delights or mini cheesecakes but not baked cheesecakes. Perhaps I should clarify that to say I have successfully make a baked cheesecake. I'm determined to master the finer art of making baked cheesecakes. The Cheesecake Factory gets rave reviews of making the best cheesecakes there are so I was quite excited to have the opportunity to visit one during our road trip. Thanks to this stop I am now quite inspired at trying baked cheesecakes again so watch for those results coming soon.

The Cheesecake Factory has several locations throughout the United States. We visited the location at 5799 N. Bayshore Drive in Glendale, Wisconsin. The Cheesecake Factory offers eat in dining, a bar and bakery and a catering service. The atmosphere is quite pleasant leaning on the elegant side. Their menu is available online although there are no prices included. Cheesecake can be bought online for home delivery as well. Shipping is by FedEx is additional and only to US destinations except for New Mexico, some Alaskan zip codes, colleges/universities or hospitals. Be warned they are on the pricey side at upwards of $50 for a 10-inch.

We did not eat in the restaurant but rather bought individual slices of cheesecake at an average of $7 per slice. Each slice along with whipped cream on the side is packaged into a clam box. For cheesecake lovers this is a must stop! There are so many flavours to choose from ranging from plain to Godiva chocolate and everything in between. It's enough to make you drool in anticipation.

The most notable thing about The Cheesecake Factory cheesecakes is the silky smoothness. The texture is just a delight! I now know what to strive for in my baked cheesecakes. Let the experiments begin!

I agree with your first commenter... if they made their portions smaller, maybe we'd have room for some cheesecake afterwards! lol! We always end up taking dessert home every time we eat there. We love Cheesecake factory!

They really are large portions if you ask me Dave. We cut ours in half for two servings each and the whipped cream was a bit much but if you ordered a slice in the restaurant that's how large they come.

Hi JMom and thanks for visiting. The portions here like most restaurants are too large but large portions have become expected. It is a good thing most restaurants allow doggy bags :)
