Nothing Better Than Free Food

Tonight, I went to the Cheesecake Factory with my sister and one of my friends. My friend was taking me out, her treat. There was no way I was going to refuse that. This was my first time going to the cheesecake factory. I have only heard about how great it was. After waiting about 1/2 hour to get seated, because the place was so full, we finally got our seats close to the back of the restaurant. I must say, It was a nice place indeed. My sister ordered an appetizer that was some type of corn bread with a topping of guacamole, sour cream and all the other nacho chip toppings... I wasn't feeling it. My friend got the salmon rolls which were really great. They reminded me of Thai spring rolls filled with salmon. They were quite tasty if I do say so myself. For my entree I ordered "Jumbo Chicken Chop". It looked and smelled delicious. It came with mash potatoes and string beans.
But there was a slight problem. The sauce that they gave me had bacon in it. I do not eat any pig products. After letting my waitress know the problem, she proceed to take my food back to the kitchen to change my order. When my food was brought back to me, it was the same piece of chicken that was just soaked in the bacon filled sauce, just on a nother plate. There was no way that I was going to eat that. Luckily, the manager came walking by and I told him my troubles so he allowed me change my order and made it complementary.
Ymmmmmmmmm... Free food, its always great. I decided to have a nice big slice of white chocolate macadamia nut cheese cake. I left that place feeling like a fat slow with 2 take home containers in my hands.
It was all worth it. When you have time, and the money........ Go eat at the Cheesecake factory. It's delectable!

You only waited a 1/2 hour for dinner? I remember waiting for up to 2 hours once when I was with a large group of folks. Now I go at an off time.. like 3 for lunch or 10 for dinner.

Nigga! What a gwan? Wouldn't it look weird for all these people to comment in your spot and I havent even come through? So yeah, I'm still mad that you didn't order another entree so that we could have had some more food in the house. I should have been the one treating your ass. I wouldn't have spent a dime. You sure as hell are a cheap date. lol

Girl, I like the cheesecake Factory, but I do think it's a tad overrated. OMG the waits can be a gabillion hours long!!! 30 minutes is NOTHING!!! LOL... You were lucky that night. Oh yes, and doesn't free food seem to taste better??? LOL And it leaves you more money for drinks!!! =)
