Best Cheesecake in Chicago? – Eli's may be the best cheesecake in Chicago, but it is never quite as good as I imagine.

Perhaps it is a personal preference, but I like the Italian ricotta or mascarpone cheesecakes and German quark cheesecakes better than American cream cheese types.

I do have to hand it to Eli's though, they have some great flavors and really interact with their customers. The factory tour is so much fun and great for kids. If Olympic figure-skating champion and Dancing with the Stars runner-up Evan Lysacek loves Eli's....what's not to love, right?

Hi, Amber, we appreciate your great comments! Our fans seem to enjoy our cakes made with cream cheese but we do make a special cheesecake with hand-dipped ricotta and fresh goat cheese - we call it our "Fresh Cheese" cheesecake. Let us know if you'd like to try a taste!

CHEESECAKE KING!!!! – I love Eli's!!! Their cheesecake is so smooth, flavorful, filling, yummy to the tummy, good!! The original cheesecake is my favorite but if you had a touch of strawberry syrup on top or chocolate, it will make you feel like you're in heaven.

Cheesecake lovers make the pilgrimage west to tour the headquarters of this world-famous sweets-maker. – In Short
This northwest-side facility is the largest specialty cheesecake bakery in the country. Guests of all ages tour the plant and learn the company's history. Then they sit in the cafe decorated with baked goods-inspired murals and enjoy the world-famous cheesecake creations. Popular cheesecakes include chocolate chip, Key lime breeze and mud pie; other sweet options include tiramisu, apple Bavarian tart, muffins, pound cakes and cookies--all of which are made on-site.
