Their menu is like 30 pages long, it's ridiculous. If that doesn't clue you in, I'll go ahead and tell you, everything there is frozen and more or less premade, even their cheesecakes. They ship them from regional distributors who follow Cheesecake Factory recipes and freeze them.

Personally I think their food is ok, most of it is pretty bland and gutless though. All their desserts except their cheesecake suck though.

Get the bruschetta appetizer + one of the fifty thousand main courses - it's not the best food you'll ever have but it's quite a bit so keep that in mind because you must order cheesecake too!

bruschetta is yummy!

I seldom finish a meal when I go out so I try to order things that carry home nicely,doggie bags make a great lunch the next day:p

frozen or not the food is ok, or better than ok as I generally rate Chillis and others as Ok....

I would put it in the same league as the outback, Legal Seafood and any other major chain upscale place...

cheescake there is great, but as others have said not the absolute best, but then again finding the best is rather difficult so the CCF is a good alternative IMHO

What is the average price of an entree and how large are the slices of cheesecake?

1/4 the pie? $7 a slice should get you at at least a quarter of the pie.

You had a tiramasu cheesecake? They have tiramasu on the menu, it's terrible (all whipped cream). I didn't realize they made a cheesecake version of it.
