(WBIR-Knoxville) After long anticipation, The Cheesecake Factory finally opened its doors late Tuesday morning in West Knoxville.
Dozens of people lined up to be the first ones through the door, before the restaurant at West Town Mall officially opened for the first time at 11 a.m.
The Cheesecake Factory is best known for its dozens of cheesecake varieties, but managers said they have plenty of other menu items, including low-cal options.
"We have more than 200 options, plus 50 items on our Skinnylicious menu, which are 500 calories of less. From soups to salads, sandwiches, steaks, pasta - you name it - we have it on our menu here at the Cheesecake Factory," said Alethia Rowe.
