that had the better meal.

I understand that Cheesecake is NOT among the chowhound favorites but, let me tell you of my little story...

Last night I was at a fancy wedding at the Nixon Library. Dinner consisted of the typical salad, rolls chicken and filet. I had only chicken; breast w/ a lemon butter caper sauce. UGH!!! What a waste of 100K! Went to the Grove today. Had Hors D'Ouveres at the farm (cookies) while waiting for our table at Cheesecake. Then, I ordered chicken and biscuits. Something I've never done b-4. WOW! Yum - 3 meals and only 14.95! Glad it wasn't my 100K spent last night!

Tell me folks....What's the bad thing about Cheesecake??? B-cuz it's a chain, or is it the crowds?? Please educate me. I have never had a bad meal there and it's always so reasonable. I love this place. Maybe I'm not a "hip" hounder?? :/ KQ
