A favorite of families and anyone with a sweet tooth, the Cheesecake Factory boasts a dazzlingly long list of varieties of their namesake dessert, from classic plain to turtle cheesecake to Kahlua mudslide. Located in The Galleria, the restaurant's elegant dining room has been decorated to look like a European bakery, with black-and-white floors and gold-tone metal railings. Aside from dessert, the Cheesecake Factory offers standard American fare: salads, pizza, burgers, sandwiches and french fries.
