I know this is the Toronto/Ontario board, but I can't seem to find any other board to cover Buffalo NY, and I assume half the people eating at popular Buffalo spots on weekends are Ontarians.
Anyway, I was in Buffalo last Saturday, and almost ate at cheesecake factory (newly opened in Walden Galleria) -I've eaten there in Florida a number of times, and despite it being a chain, I've found every dish I've had to be very good. When I say I "almost" ate there, I arrived 5:50 pm sat night, and there was already a 2.5-3 hour wait! (and my kids wouldn't wait)
Anyone try this location yet? If so, does it compare well to their other locations? Am I the only one here who LOVES this place? (I get the feeling a lot of chowhounders turn their noses up at it) No place could be that bad and still have such long lineups consistantly. When I've gone to various locations in Florida, especially on weekends/christmastime, 2-3 hour waits seem to be normal!
