It takes an hour just to read their entire menu, which may have been a cause for the delays.

I can honestly tell you, I don't get the passion for restaurant food. Between the people who camp out for Chick-Fil-A and the long lines at Popeye's for a chicken sandwich, I'm baffled by it all.

And now we have these hearty people, who showed up early Tuesday morning for the opening of the new Cheesecake Factory restaurant at the Woodland Mall.

WZZM, 13 On Your Side, got the scoop...


I'm not gonna lie to you, the cheesecake at the Cheesecake Factory is to die for, but I'm not sure it's worth waiting in line for, but more power to you if you like the wait.

Here's a heads up -- prepare by going to their web site before you head over, because the Cheesecake Factory menu is almost the length of a small novel, so ordering a meal is kind of like taking a quiz.
