The Cheesecake Factory Complaint - Beware: Raw Chicken
WHITE PLAINS, NEW YORK -- I went to the Cheesecake Factory on Sunday, January 25, 2008 for dinner. I have no complaints about the service, the young lady was an excellent waitress. She even gave my son some bananas to snack on for free.
I ordered the Steak Diane with Chicken Madeira. The first thing I tried was the steak which was rare to raw in the middle when I asked for medium rare. It tasted good and I tried to overlook the fact that it was undercooked because I'm not one to complain in a restaurant. Next I tried the Chicken and thought it tasted a little mushy but again, I overlooked the fact that something may be wrong. The lighting in the restaurant was really dim and I couldn't see what I was eating at all.
I finally realized that the chicken was completely raw when I cut into it a second time and noticed the consistency of the chicken was completely mushy. I then cut through the entire piece and the slime that covers the chicken before you cook it was still on the chicken and it was completely RAW. Under the wrong lighting it kind of looked like cheese in the middle when I cut the whole piece of chicken down the middle. It was absolutely disgusting, especially considering I had eaten a piece. I was outraged and they tried to give me something else for free but I could not eat anything the rest of that night. I was so paranoid that I was going to get Salmonella poisoning that my stomach was in knots the whole night.
Beware of this Restaurant, look closely at your food before you bite into it and if you can't see what you are eating, DON'T EAT IT LIKE I DID! The Manager even came to our table and said it was absolutely disgusting in the light.
