One of my favorite dishes is the Spicy Cashew Chicken. It is ALWAYS the same, no matter what Cheesecake Factory I eat in from coast to coast! Plus the plain cheesecake is amazing! Actually all of the cheesecake varieties are fantastic.

You can call in advance but I don't think they take reservations. The best time to go is around 6 pm after that it gets really crowded. Enjoy!!!!

No you cant. The wait time is long. I suggest you call ahead and speak with the manager of the day, explain her wish and get his name. Hopefully, she/ he will honor your request. Good luck.
