UPDATE: Cheesecake Factory Announces Opening Date

Dacula Cheesecake Factory lovers will no longer have to make the trip to Atlanta or Alpharetta to indulge in a decadent meal at The Cheesecake Factory.

Come December, the full service restaurant chain will open just a few miles away at the Mall of Georgia. The 8,400-square-foot restaurant will be located in The Village.


“We are thrilled to welcome The Cheesecake Factory to our restaurant mix,” said Carol Cox, director of marketing and business development at Mall of Georgia, in a released statement. “It was the most requested restaurant addition on our social media pages, and we’re pleased to continue our commitment to the community by adding more of what shoppers want to see at Mall of Georgia.”

The Cheesecake Factory has 160 locations nationwide and features a menu with more than 250 dishes including 30 varieties of cheesecake. The restaurant also offers a "SkinnyLicious" menu with 50 selections under 590 calories.

Cool!! It's about time!! Finally something different and not the same old fast food restaurants.

I agree. About time this made it to MoG area. I guess they thought it was too far OTP to get higher end dining options. I hope it survives! "The Villages"....isn't that closer to 985 than the heart of the MoG area? Better start saving up now...not a cheap place to eat and 100 pages of menu to look through!

The Village section is where P.F. Chang's is. That's just what they call it. It's still at the mall.

I'm not sure which space this is going in though. There was a restaurant right behind Chang's that closed plus there is the old FAO Schwartz space -- maybe it will be in one of those.

Ah. Shows how much I pay attention to the "areas" of the mall. There is a development that is on GA20 closer to 985 that is said to be "The Village Mall of Georgia" (http://www.americanstardevelopment.com/the-village.html). That's what I was referring to. Glad to know it's in the high traffic area of the mall. :)

I thought there was a new restaurant already opening behind Changs. My guess is that it will go what Schwartz was.

@Richard - Do you happen to know what is going in behind Chang's? The last time I was over there, I didn't see any signs (granted I don't walk through The Villages that often though). I only ate at that Mexican place that was there once. It was fine I guess, I just prefer El Jinete.

Tin Lizzy's will be located behind PF Changs. Cheesecake will be across the valet circle area from PF Changs.

Hot dog! A Tin Lizzy at MoG? That's reason to celebrate! Some of the best fish tacos I've ever had were from Tin Lizzy's! This just made going to the mall for Christmas shopping a little more pleasant! Thanks for making my day lindy89!

Was at the mall yesterday and saw the black fencing around the proposed area for The Cheesecake Factory! There was GREAT EXCITEMENT in my wife's eyes! I'm SURE we'll be there often (it's her FAVORITE place)!:-)

I've never been to The Cheesecake Factory. Everything I know about it comes from watching "The Big Bang Theory." If it's good enough for Sheldon, I guess I'll give it a try ;)
Scott August 27, 2013 at 01:32 PM
Kristi - you're in for a treat! But, you should really read the menu online before you go. It's a process when you're in your seat and the server is waiting for you to make up your mind. PS: It's NOTHING like what's on "The Big Bang Theory". They use the name for fun only. It's really a nice place...almost upscale for some...certainly more than most chain type places currently in the area. Be prepared to spend a good bit of cash!
Kristi Reed (Editor) August 27, 2013 at 01:34 PM
Thanks for the tip Scott. I figured with 250 or so menu items, it might be worth looking it over online first! I'll need time just to study the 30 cheesecake options ...

Followed Scot's link above, don't think that village has been developed, looked like it will go next to the new Jim Ellis dealership at Plunkets & 20

Forget the chains. Try local independents like Friends and Luigi's in Dacula. Local Republic and Oyster House in downtown Lawrenceville, Antebellum in Flowery Branch, Parma at MOG, heck even 2 Dog in Gainesville! All close by, all local, and most all fresh compared to pre packaged nuke food at inflated prices. To each as own, but the independents have all around better fare. Cheesecake Factory? Doubt I will ever be inside the place.
