    We will be staying off site one night prior to checking in at a WDW resort. During our last visit we saw these two restaurants and we are thinking about going to one on Sat, Jan 10th. Never been to either so what are some thoughts from those who have!

    is mainly asian food. Not your typical chinese food, but it all has an asian twist. I love eating there and the lettuce wraps are amazing. But you have to want asian food.

    Cheesecake factory has anything you could even think you might want for dinner. I also enjoy eating there, and go there when we need a very varied menu, or we are thinking of one of our favorite dushes from there.

    Your best bet is to look up the menu for both online so you know what type of food is there. Price wsie, Cheesecake can be less expensive depending on what you order.

    If you've never been to either then you have to go with Cheesecake Factory.

    Great idea. Cheesecake Factory portions are HUGE so you may want to consider splitting entrees.

    Cheesecake Factory also has a HUGE menu. Portions are large. It is good. We have one right around the corner from us, but we don't go there much since they dumped a whole tray of drinks down my back. Also if your meal there sucks for some reason, they are the hardest place to get them to comp even a part of the meal.

    I don't think PF Chang is worth the $$. I LOVE Cheesecake Factory though. That would easily be my choice.

    HUGE thumbs up for Cheesecake F. :thumbsup2 Both are good but as mentioned you pretty much have to like eating asian to eat at Changs. Everyone in your group pretty much does of someone will be less than happy. My hubby loves Changs but I'm not adventurous and my kids don't care for it either. As was said CF has a HUGE menu. And that's not including the dessert menu. We actually have never had dessert there because we're always so full from the entree and app if we have them. Lots for everyone. They have asian on there too (if someone is hankering for it) and from personal experience, the potstickers are GREAT and their asian salad is the only salad I'll order in ANY restaurant. It's that good. No kids menu though which I don't like but there's stuff on the regular menu kids will eat like pizza, mini burgers and fried, etc.
    I bet you can find menus online to check out. The only thing I don't like about CF's menu is all the stupid ads. :rolleyes:


    OH to wish WDW food was that good! :rolleyes1 that's another thread. :laughing:

    I highly recommend the Cheesecake Factory. PF Changs is not as good as it use to be.

    Go early. Both places get real crowded!! I was there on Dec 11 at about 6-6:30pm, PF Changs had a 90 minute wait, Cheesecake had a 45 minute wait.

    We're staying at Windsor Hills soon. What is the closest CF to there? My son (turning 13 on trip) has CF at the top of his "to do" list for his birthday.
