Never Order These Things At The Cheesecake Factory
The Cheesecake Factory has plenty of delicious options, but it's not exactly the best place to eat out at if you're on a diet. While not every item on the menu is equally horrifying, there are certain ones you should absolutely avoid if you want to stay healthy.
There's a reason why The Cheesecake Factory's huge menu is all over the map. When it opened in 1972, founder and CEO David Overton needed a place to sell his mom's cheesecakes.
Overton wasn't a chef, and he had no previous restaurant experience. He needed a menu that he could cook himself, so he initially focused on classic American fare: burgers and fries, sandwiches, and salads. But other restaurants with specialty cuisine were stiff competition, and Overton didn't want to lose business to them. So the company expanded the menu haphazardly, adding Mexican dishes, Italian dishes, and hybrids of both. Anything that could be conceivably ordered, Overton added to the menu.
This throw-it-to-the-wall-and-see-if-it-sticks philosophy gave birth to the Louisiana Chicken Pasta. This Frankenstein-esque creation won the 2015 Xtreme Eating Award as one of the top five worst restaurant-chain meals. It consists of four breaded and fried slices of chicken breast placed on bowtie pasta with a spicy New Orleans sauce. One portion contains 2,370 calories, meaning that you could go over your daily quota without even finishing it.
